A Basket of Leaves

I saw this cute basket with leaves on Splitcoast Stampers, I believe, and thought it was the cutest! So I gave it a try. The basket itself was made from a Stampin Up Sizzix lines embossing folder, with strips of paper for the 'banding'. The leaves and acorn(which my son calls coconuts!!) I cut out with my Cricut using the cartridges Stretch Your Imagination and Give a Hoot. Then I embossed them with two different Cuttlebug embossing folders for texture. All of the cardstock is from Stampin Up, which cuts wonderfully on my Cricut Create!! And the only stamping(other than sponging the leaves), is my sentiment which is from Unity. I am sending this card to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog where their theme is Fall Harvest-to use leaves on your project. And also to Unity's Friends with Flair day (for my wee stamping of the sentiment), which I haven't participated in for some time now! Thanks for dropping by, and have a fun weekend!!
