Magnificent Maple Masculine Card

This is a great fall card that is quick and easy.  It also works beautifully for a masculine card!  I layered Early Espresso Core'dinations CS on to Early Espresso CS for a more 3-D effect,  Before adhering the two, I ran the Core'dinations CS through the Woodgrain embossing folder, then sanded the surface lightly.  This makes such a great rustic look.  Sticky Strip holds the Burlap Ribbon in place on the back.  

I stamped the Magnificent Maple image on White Vellum CS and embossed it with gold embossing powder, then cut out the leaf and adhered it with Dimensionals.  I used the Birch Bark Paper from the Thanksgiving Tablescape Simply Created Kit to give it a fun look and topped it off with a cute Naturals Designer Button.  I took a small thread from another piece of the Burlap Ribbon and tied it through the holes in the button.  You get double the use with that ribbon when you cut one edge and pull the threads out.  That Burlap Ribbon is so great!  I have already gone through an entire spool of it, and you get 5 yards on one spool.  Working on my second spool now.  :)
