I've pulled lots and lots of old stash out of my drawers for this card - the horse chestnut leaf is the very first stamp I ever bought, about 20 years ago. It is a Personal Impressions one, so old the design mane/number has worn off, and although I have added hundreds and hundreds of stamps to my collection over the years, it is still one of my favourite and most versatile stamps. I stamped it with brown wink, embossing some of the images with a copper sparkle powder and the others with a variegated one called "Wild tiger", also both very early purchases along my crafting journey.
The metallic peel offs were part of a kit I bought from QVC when I first started watching it. That was when my older daughter was doing her A levels, and she is 36 now, so you can imagine how old they are!
The lovely autumn leaf backing paper that I've used on the inside of the card is less than a year old, a positive baby, part of a sheet from the DCWV stack 9 that I got back in the early spring, and the embossed and inked foil is left over from a previous project.
I made an acetate window in the front of the card so that the paper on the inside would form part of the overall design.
