There are about half a dozen items from the summer mini still available to order.
One of my favourites (that you have seen a bit of) is the square lattice embossing folder that I have used above. It has such a deep tactile texture, like tapestry cloth, or cross stitch linen.
Any way its back and you can still order it... yay!!! See the carry over items here.
Then, I sponged the edges heavily with Soft Suede.
My leaves are rock n' rolled in the ink pads:
Riding hood red, Pumpkin pie, Old Olive and perhaps a light touch with Early Espresso.
It gives a beautiful appearance of the leaves turning from green, through red to brown.
I have stamped them on Sahara sand cardstock then cut them out with my very sharp paper snips.

So as not to cover up too much of the background I put my Happy Birthday sentiment (from Curly Cute $27.95 Clear mounted) on velum and attached it with a vintage brad.
