Cards · Fall · Thinking of You

Can you feel it??

Fall is my favorite time of the year!  Hoodies and heavy sweaters, apple cider, bon fires, football, falling leaves, you name it!  So when I saw this card posted by Jackie Bolhuis I had to copy it!  The leaves are made using the baby wipe technique.

Simple fold a baby wipe in half on a hard surface.  add 4-5 drops from your Stampin’ Up reinkers and use that as your ink pad!  I used Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry.

I hope you enjoy!
