Isn't it perfect that the new "Soho Subway Designer Paper" has exactly these colors? I used one of the sheets for my background and added a few leaves from the "Autumn Accents Die" and embossed them:

  • Cardstock: Island Indigo, Early Espresso, Summer Starfruit

  1. The leaves are perfect for these colors! I love them embossed! And that button is perfect!

  2. Gorgeous card! I love the embossed leaves. Makes me look forward to seeing fall again!

  3. Beautiful card, Deb! I love how you used a non traditional color for one of the leaves.

  4. I love this DSP much more than I thought I would when I ordered it, lol! Your embossed leaves in the challenge colors are so eye-catching! Great layout for a fab card!

  5. The SoHo Subway DSP looks so rich with these beautiful leaves. Great way to show them off. TFS.

  6. Beautiful card! Love the leaves in these colors!

  7. So glad the leaf die made it over to the new catalog. Love the DSP behind the leaves...really makes the leaves POP!
