This is my card for the shoebox swap for Southern California MiniMania tomorrow. It is called a buckle card because the So Saffron layer "buckles" the card by going through the hole made by the word window punch. These cards are easy to make and fun to look at! I could give a tutorial on how to make them, but there is already a really cool tutorial by Beate at Splitcoaststampers--http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/bucklecard.php
This card used the color challenge from this week--So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy, and Mellow Moss. This color combo is perfect for a fall card!
The leaf layer has a background made with the rough texture jumbo wheel in So Saffron. The Leaf stamp is from Tags and More and is stamped with Cranberry Crisp. The set has been around for a while, but I still use it often! It is a great set to get if you wanted images for different occasions. It has the leaf, candles, a dragonfly, a snowman, 2 stamps with flowers, a bunny, and a stamp that says "Just for you to:______ from:_______" The title of the set "Tags and More" is so true. They make great tags, but the stamps are also great for cards and other projects also.
