Joy Clair Falling Leaves Background with Joy Clair Living Water

Hello and welcome!

I'm over on the Joy Clair blog with a fall card for you using 2 of our newly released sets:

Here's a look at both sets:

Both sets are gorgeous!  I used the Joy Clair Falling Leaves Background with just one sentiment from Living Water set.

First I took Deco Foil in Emerald Watercolor and added it to a piece of card stock that I had added glue to randomly around the paper.  So the foil stuck randomly and it looked pretty cool, but not good enough to use as a background by itself.  So I took a piece of vellum and stamped the leaf background stamp on it in Staz-On ink and colored the back of the vellum in fall leaf colors

Next I added the vellum to the foiled background piece and added two rectangle dies to it.  One A2 size frame with an MFT scalloped rectangle frame inside of it.  I used another MFT rectangle die for the sentiment after heat embossing in in white.  I popped the sentiment up on fun foam and then added Studio Katia water droplets on the card.  

Here's a final look at my card:

I'm so glad I decided to use that foiled panel with the vellum over it.  It really helped soften the harsh edges I had gotten with the glue and foil.  Just shows you, hold on to pieces you make that you think didn't work for your project because they might work for a different project!

Happy crafting my friends!  And don't forget to check out all the new released stamps HERE at Joy Clair stamps
