I am so excited to be posting my first blog about one of my items listed on Etsy!!! YEAH!
I named this one ‘Autumn Leaves’, it is a Thanksgiving dinner invitation. I had created something similar a few years back for my family and thought this would be a great item to sell on Etsy. The leaves are actually two separate pieces held together with an eyelet; the eyelet allows the leaves to swivel. I first printed the information onto the card stock then stamped the leaves onto the paper with a Versa Mark ink. After I stamped the leaves, I heat dried a clear embossing powder onto them to give a shiny texture. A chestnut and a sheer ribbon finished it off! The most time consuming portion of this was cutting the leaves out by hand…but it is well worth it.
My mind is wondering on winter holiday invitations but I cannot go there just yet. I have holiday greeting card sets I must complete and list first!!
Well, that’s if for now…have a wonderful day!
