First Gently Falling Set Card

Hello, everyone!  Today's card is a card I made for a Stampin' Connection swap I was in.  This is one of many stamp sets I'm in love with from the Holiday Mini.  It's called Gently Falling (p. 16 & 17). I was even able to get it as part of a 40% off bundle.  Not only did I get it 40% off, but I also got my regular 20% off on top of that!  I love being a demonstrator and earning stuff at a big discount... some free!  It's wonderful!  If you want to learn more about becoming a demonstrator, just go to my "JOIN THE FUN" page on my demo website.  You can even sign-up to become a demonstrator while you're there, if you like.  I would LOVE to have you as part of my growing group.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to CONTACT ME.

I used one of my favorite Fall color combos...More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla.  It might just be my favorite Fall combo.  I stamped the outline of the leaves first using Early Espresso ink, and then stamped the bolder leaf images in the other three colors.  I also used another great stamp set from the Holiday Mini, Hand-Penned Holidays (p. 15).  I just love this font!  It's so pretty and elegant.  I stamped it in Early Espresso ink.  The bottom border of the Old Olive strip was made with the Scallop Trim Border Punch (p. 211).  If you look closely, you can see that I used the new item, Dazzling Details (p. 41 in the Holiday Mini) on the leaf that I cut out & put on the scallop circle.  I've got a close-up of it below.  Just click on picture to see a larger version of it.  The camera doesn't do it justice, though.  It sparkles a lot more in real life.  I only put SNAIL adhesive to the center part of the leaf so the edges would naturally curl up a little bit.
