Thankful for Waxed Paper!

Here is my first card using the techniques I showed over the last couple of days.  The multi-green background is one of the leftover embossed waxed papers that I showed yesterday. Using brown StazOn and my new HOTP stamps set (Four Seasons), I stamped the focal image of the tree, piles of leaves, and a rake.  I had expected to color the leaves in, but found I liked them just the way they were.  

The frame is a brown glimmer paper.  It is actually the border of a lattice piece (Cheery Lynn die). I had cut out the inside lattice and used it for something and this was what remained.  It made a nice border for my alcohol-inked paper.  

The frame for the sentiment is the outside of the smallest die in the Resplendent Rectangles die set (Spellbinder's Majestic Elements). I trimmed the outside to a rectangular shape as you can see.  I stamped the sentiment on a white piece of paper and then popped the rectangular frame around it using foam tape.  At this point, the card looked like this:

To finish, I stamped a border of leaves top and bottom, then stamped a few more and cut them out to add a bit more interest to the framed sentiment.
