CAS Autumnal Note Card

Today's CAS85 challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was a fall colours challenge - we were to use kraft, red, vanilla and brown - orange was an optional extra.  I decided to make an autumnal note card using the Hero Arts Three Designer Leaves stamp set.  A very simple card but I love the warm feel this has.

I've made a side opening A6 size card using SU! Kraft CS.  I've stamped the images in Really Rust, Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip ink onto Very Vanilla CS panels.  These panels are mounted to a Ruby Red panel that I've edged with the EK Success Dotted Wave decorative border punch.  I added the sentiment and then found a button in my stash that matched well with the Kraft CS.  I threaded some linen thread through the holes and attached the button to a strip of Choc Chip grosgrain ribbon to finish off the card. 

Stamps: Hero Arts Three Designer Leaves stamp set, SU! Sweet Little Sentiments set
CS: SU! Kraft, Ruby Red & Very Vanilla
Ink: SU! Really Rust, Ruby Red & Chocolate Chip
Tools: EK Success Dotted Wave border punch, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig

Embellishments & accessories: SU! Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, button, linen thread, glue dots
