It's Time for "Leafing" the Summer Shadows Dies

Well, It's Time for "Leafing" the Summer Shadows Dies. We've created some lovely cards using these free dies and this will be our last in the series. So since we are saying good bye and "leafing" this set I thought we'd use the "Leaf" dies  for a nice simple and quick card...

Shaded summer cinnammon

And a bit closer to our die cuts...

Shaded Summer cinnamon cu

We're using the warm copper to coordinate with the lovely Cinnamon Cider in the Harvest Meadows Designer Series Paper...and topping it off with the new Brushed Metallic self-adhesive dots. We used the Stazon Saddle Brown ink (one of my favorites during the autumn designs because of it's rich soft brown color). This is such a simple design and yet very striking in the autumn tones. 

We hope you have enjoyed discovering several beautiful ways to use your new FREE Summer Shadows dies. Tune in next week for something new!
