House of Cards Color or Texture Challenge...

Today starts the new monthly challenge for the House of Cards!  This challenge is about using these beautiful fall colors or adding some texture to your card or both!  I opted to use both!

I started by using a piece of SU! early espresso core’dinations cardstock that I ran through the woodgrain embossing folder.  The beauty of the core’dinations cardstock is that it is sandable.  So I sanded the ridges of the woodgrain a bit. oct HOC 1 (531x640)

I die cut six tags out of varying cardstock that was inspired by the colors in the challenge image.  I ran each of these tags thru a sweater impression plate to add a bit of texture there as well.  I stacked them together with just a bit of each color sticking out. oct HOC 2 (633x640)

I stamped the pumpkins and sentiment on the top tag and added some chunky orange jute to the tag. That's it!

Be sure to play along with this challenge!  You can link up HERE!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to pop in tomorrow!!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! sahara sand, early espresso, old olive, tangelo twist, pumpkin pie, basic gray, and very vanilla.  Stamps:  Reverse Confetti forever fall.  Inks:  SU! pumpkin pie, early espresso, and old olive.  Other:  SU! woodgrain embossing folder.  PTI striped sweater impression plate.  Orange jute.
