Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is Faux Embossing.
I started with a card base of Kraft paper.  Using the Impression
Obsession die-Small Leaves, I cut out the leaves three times with
the same Kraft paper.  Then, glue the leaves randomly on the front of the card.
Used Faded Burlap distress ink around the edge before decorating.
Paper is Memory Box, Blackbird 6x6 stack. 
Stamps - Bold Pumpkin (F5461) Hero Arts
Sentiment - Art Gone Wild (D72364)
Green leaf is from the same Impression Obsession die.

This is the card opened.  Liner is orange text weight paper.
Using the EK Success leaf border punch and the same paper as
on the front of the card, punched border for both layers.

Card opened to inside.
Sentiment - Inkadinkado (95787-N)
Love the look of the Faux Embossing.  Hope you have a chance to try it.
Use a small circle punch and make polka dot background.  Try different color papers.
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.
