Autumn Card For A Man

Love these Autumn colours and thought this would make a good man's card with the darker russet tones and the olive green ribbon.The background is stamped with autumn leaves and one additional leaf is popped with multi dimensional tape. The die for the sentiment (stamped onto watercolour paper and heat embossed) is a Nellie Snellen oval from the Multi series.

As an aside, I'm finding watercolor paper with its extra thickness is great for stamping onto, for die cuts and especially for embossing as it leaves deeper impressions than regular paper. I'll be using it a lot more from now on, although I won't go overboard, as it's more expensive than regular card.
