Creative Nugget: Looks like Cocoa is ready for fall, too, as he is peeking around that big pumpkin. Cocoa was stamped on Neenah Solar Crest card stock and colored with copic markers. The out-of-the-box technique was used along with a circle nestie to cut out the image. This was mounted onto a Dark Chocolate Fleur de Lis Motif die. The next two panels of Basic Grey DP were also mounted on Dark Chocolate. It's hard to see, but the kraft layer was randomly stamped with several leaves from the new Leaf Silhouettes clear stamp set with VersaMark ink, and embossed using a Tim Holtz embossing Folder. Here's a little embossing tip: I always cut the panel a little larger than I need, emboss the panel, then cut it to the correct size. Embossing always seems to shrink the size of your panel a little, and this way you get the perfect size you need! All panels were layered onto Neenah Solar Crest, and then to a Dark Chocolate card base. The two leaves from the Leaf Silhouettes set were stamped and fussy cut. A hole was punched in the top of the leaves so the Baker's twine could be threaded through and a button attached. The sentiment was stamped on a strip of Neenah Solar Crest and the flag end punched with a photo corner punch. This also was mounted on Dark Chocolate. A few buttons finish the card!
Here is the Christmas version:
