I used some clear Wink of Stella on the bells on the hats of my little tyke and the bird, but it doesn't photograph well. I used the technique Polished Stone and made the paper for my leaves and the scallop base under my sentiment. I didn't add any metallic to my paper like the video shows and I used re-inkers by Ranger in the colors rust, lettuce green and yellow.
And here is the awesomist, bestest part of this card....this bow. Ever spend forever to get a bow to come out just right? I don't! I use my handy Craft-Dee BowZ tool and this bow came out perfect the very first time. I mean, this double looped bow is one of my best. Thank you, Donna, at Craft-Dee BowZ for sending me this beautiful autumn ribbon!
I've had the rubber stamp below for around 20 years (I was 9 when I got it--hahaha). Since it's an 'autumn' stamp, I only get to use it a limited number of times each year, but I try to use it every year. I love how the stamp has the acorn and oak leaves that I can color to match the outside of my card. And, the sentiment is really nice, too. ;) I don't normally show the inside of my cards, although I finish every single one as I make the outside, but this one I had to share with you!
