THE PREP:

{TOPPER}

Chocolate Brown CS for the base, from Fabriano....
Orange, white & Yellow CSs for the layers.....
A kind of Gate Fold card.... Just folded the card front halfway in the opposite direction.....
Topped it with few layers which are nestability die cuts (Scalloped Oval, Plain Oval {which I've punched out further to shape it into a frame} & Scalloped Circle)
Sentiment on the top is from Fiskars, Birthday!
Heat Embossed it in white & completed the topper with some white gemstones from stash....
Punched out a butterfly with the punch from Itsy Bitsy.... and added some bling....

OCT4DT


{INSIDE}

Stamped the image from Woodland (Stampabilities) with clear embossing ink.....
Heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.....
To let the embossing show on the white BG, sponged some ink around, to give it the FEEL OF FALL!!!! {This is the card, where I initially sponged the ink all over as in the emboss resist technique & my hubby did not quite like it..... In order to show him the image after it was heat embossed, I had sponged the ink only to cover the image, which he liked & later filled it up completely, which he disliked & asked me to stick onto what I did earlier} And that was when I had to redo the entire thing on the other side & pasted the completely inked surface down.... That gave birth to this technique of just highlighting the heat embossed part on the project..... May be I would call it, Partially Highlighted Emboss Resist Technique!!!
Have used Walnut Distress Ink on the lower part of the image, Memento Dew Drops to cover the tree & leaves & a little pink from Pretty Color on the outer portion of the entire image to just give it a slight dimension.....
Pierced holes to give the layer a bordered look....
Stamped the sentiment from Make a Wish Quotes from Fiskars....


Have not done much on the card as such, as I did not want the focal points to be interrupted with unnecessary interferences..... :D

That's it for now.... Too busy with all the happenings around..... So just managed to squeeze in some time to post my inspiration for TCC!!! Do join us in all the FUN, now & November Digi Day Party scheduled for the 5th..... :D

Have Fun & Happy Celebrations!!!

UNTIL NEXT, KEEP THE FAITH!!!
