Fall Love

Hello crafty friends,

Fall is my favorite season.  Fall weather (60s to 70s) is my ideal weather.  Fall occasional like Halloween, my birthday, Thanksgiving are my favorite.  I just LOVE Fall.  So even thou the Design Team is still working with the July Christmas release, I just had to take a break and bring you something Fall themed :)

I created a few cards using the following dies:
On my first card, I took the Sweet Petites Fall Festival border and created a frame, by die cutting four pieces from white card stock.

I used markers to color the individual motifs on the border.  I had to trim away sections of the border to make my frame fit.

On my second card, I took the Whispers Northern Maple die and create a negative element on the top layer of my card.  I used markers to create a golden ray affect.

I added dimensional tape to the back of the layer and attached it to my card base.  Next I die cut the Northern Maple again from pattern paper and glue it inside the top layers' negative leaf shape onto the card base.

A couple of foil stickers, a stamp sentiment and ribbon finished the card.

On my last card, I tried something a little different.
I started with a bold leaf pattern paper as my top card layer.  Next I die cut the Whisper Pattern Pumpkin die from white card stock twice.

I craved (get it... lol) out the pumpkin's inside, keeping just the frame.  I glued the pumpkin frame onto a stamped and water-colored image.  I trimmed my "scenic" pumpkin and attached it to the card with dimensional tape.

A few extra embellishments from my stash finished the card.

Thank you for stopping bye today and allowing me to share my love of Fall with your.  Until next time...
