Make it Monday #40


Hey, friends!  Just a quick post to share a card for this week's Make it Monday with Papertrey Ink.  The challenge is to use reverse applique, and I couldn't resist giving it a try.

This card started with a Dark Chocolate card base, in which I die cut a window with Mat Stack 5.  Behind that is a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock debossed with woodgrain and die cut with a maple leaf to create another "window".  I added a piece of Terracotta Tile felt as the bottom layer to give the leaf a soft texture.

For the reverse applique, I stitched around the leaf with brown thread and around the Mat Stack with cream thread.

To finish the design, I stamped a sentiment from WPlus9's Season of Thanks onto a double ended banner and added some Terracotta button accents.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink:  Dark Chocolate, Rustic Cream
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Season of Thanks)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 5, Double Ended Banner die, Leaf die, Woodgrain impression plate)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (felt, buttons), DMC floss, thread

Thanks for stopping by tonight!  Have a great one!
