Fall Pretty Invite

I had an order from the office to make a few invites.  The request was fall feeling, must fit in a standard envelope with only one stamp.  Well, nuts!  That sure limits me these days!
However, that perfect Rumple Ribbon is so USPS friendly, I knew I would be using some on my card.
However, I didn't know I would love this sunset color so much I would use EVERY single scrap Kimi sent me in my Creative Team package.
For this card I tried to add as much detail and layering as I could considering my limitations.
The orange base is from Paper Source, then a chocolate mat, then a smaller piece embossed.  To frame this Stampin Up image I first stamped the HUGE script stamp (it looked so silly on this tiny square) with TH tea dye.  I hit it with the embossing powder to be sure it was dry.  Then I stamped the leaf in versa mark and embossed with clear powder.  I wanted those veins to really be noticable so I inked it up with Pumpkin Pie from SU.
I don't usually layer the sentiment like this, but I kind of like it.  Don't forget to pick up your own Rumple Ribbon - it really is perfect for mail ready cards!
