Hey friends! Tiffany here with a reminder of this month's challenge - Sweater Weather. It's my favorite time of year (and my birthday is in a few days hehe) so I adore this month's challenge. "Sweater Weather" is up to your interpretation, but can mean all things fall or Thanksgiving, or autumn leaves, or warm beverages like apple cider or coffee. Just make a card celebrating the beauty of the fall season, use at least one Poppystamps product, and enter your project on the challenge post blog for a chance to win!

With a panel of white cardstock, I created a die cut window using the Basic Ovals Set dies. I layered the window on top of another panel of white cardstock that I die cut with the Leafy Vines Slim Plate die. I watercolored the vines with gold metallic watercolor. I wasn't precise with my watercoloring as I wanted a more organic look with bits of the white cardstock peeking out. I adhered the completed background to an A2 card base that I layered with a piece of pattern paper from the Garden Folly paper pack.

Next, I die cut the embellishment leaves. I used the Whittle Oak Leaf die and the Leaf Flourish Heart die. I ink blended a variety of distress oxide inks on the leaves in autumnal colors and arranged them on the card front. I snipped off the heart from the Leaf Flourish Heart die and cut apart the leaves to vary the look. For the sentiment, I used the Thanks Outline die. I die cut the shadow layer once from Kraft Woodgrain paper and backed it with foam tape for dimension. For the outline layer, I die cut it twice from white cardstock and once from gold foil from the Polished Foil paper pad. I adhered the layers together with liquid adhesive.

Pro tip: when using liquid glue with the Polished Foil paper, make sure to smooth the glue with your finger or a small sponge to ensure a smooth, thin layer. I've found that dots of liquid glue, no matter how small, can appear lumpy through the foil cardstock.

Hope you enjoyed this clean and simple card! I think it is perfect for a "masculine" or a gender neutral thank you card. Thanks for stopping by!
