A Frosty Reminder

Here’s a card to remind us that fall isn’t always about color.  It is so pretty to wake up to the white frost the cold night has forced upon us, pretty but not so nice for the tender plant life. 
I hope you enjoy the frosty fall card that is very quick to create.

Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps were used to color the Small Pumpkin image using the Gamsol technique. Baby oil replaces the Gamsol/mineral spirits.
The image panel and border layers were cut using the petite Nestablitlies from Spellbinder.   
Ink distressing was done on the rust layers using Ranger: Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a sponge.
The stitching was done through the top two layers only using a sewing machine.  One straight stitch across the top and bottom of the panel then the threads were pulled to the back and taped down with one sided tape and the loose ends timmed off.
Stampin Up mat pack and Bazzill piercer were used for the Making Memories brad placement.

Papers: Bazzill – white, Stampin Up – Dusty Durango, Karen Foster
exclusive to Archiver’s designer paper
Sentiment: computer printed.
