Moxie Fab Horizontal Sketch and Fall Frenzy Link Party

They've had some mah-velous sketches on Moxie Fab coming from the new Card Ideas magazine! The horizontal sketch was actually my least favorite. I had plenty of ideas for it, regardless, and ended up with a one layer, masculine, somewhat monochromatic, autumn-themed card.

I started out by stamping the leaves and sentiment in brown ink and heat embossing them with clear powder. I applied the background stamp with Versamark ink and then inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The kraft heart tag was die-cut, the edges inked and a very minimal amount of ink to sort of stamp a heart in the middle. The tag was attached to a wooden brad with jute button twine. I stabbed the brad through a fragment of scrunchy seam binding that I got from Steph via the Papertrey Ink forum (can't thank you enough, Steph!!) and attached it to the card.

Here's a better look at the embossing detail:

”"[Edited to add:] Linda over at Craftaholics Anonymous is throwing a Fall Frenzy Link Party! This has been my only Fall project so far this year but I hope to add more soon!
