Skeleton Leaves Discover Card

Hello friends! I'm back with a fall card using a few dies from the Sizzix Alterations line by Tim Holtz. The Sizzix Thinlits Skeleton Leaves Die Set is so delicate and it looks great with the 3-D Lumber Texture Fade for the background.  

I love all the different textures on this card and how quickly it all came together. 

Cut a piece of Kraft cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and position the Stacked Deckle die in the center and die cut through the Vagabond. Use a low tack tape to tape the die in position. 

Spritz cardstock with water and emboss with the 3-D Lumber Texture Fade. Don't forget to only use one cutting pad as this folder is extra think. 
Ink the center lumber piece with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink using a direct to paper technique. 

Cut dark brown Kraftstock a little larger then both of the Lumber pieces. Ink the edges of  the layers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool.

Color leaves with Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. 

Die cut the word DISCOVER from the Adventure Words Thinlits set using a strip of Heavystock and a piece of rust Kraftstock. Lightly ink the edges with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Cut a flag shape on the left end and stitch on the edges as desired. Adhere vintage dictionary print behind the word. 

Adhere pieces together. Use foam tape to adhere the smaller lumber piece and the Discover strip. Tie a bow with twine and adhere with Collage Medium over leaves. Adhere Nail Heads. 

How do you like the rustic look of the Lumber with the delicate leaves?

Thanks so much for stopping by.
