Hello friends and happy Monday! Welcome back from the weekend and cheers to a new cardmaking season! Last Friday, I announced the "end of my summer cards" and today we are kicking off all things fall. Fall truly is my favorite time of the year because of all the gorgeous colors and yes, all things pumpkin spice!
I'm excited to begin using lots of golden hues, burnt oranges and rich earthy browns in my color palette.
I'm also itching to start playing with my Halloween products too!
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Knock on Wood paper measuring 5' x 3 3/4" and mounted it to a sheet of Soft Suede cardstock. I heat embossed the sentiment in the lower right corner using white embossing powder. I die cut a large circle in the middle of these papers to create a shaker card with. I adhered a piece of clear acetate film behind the circular hole and lined the card base with some fall leaf paper (source unknown, sorry!) I die cut two birch trees from the Lawn Fawn Birch Tree Lawn Cuts and adhered them over the fall leaf paper. I filled the shaker frame with amber sequins. On a separate sheet of white cardstock, I stamped the Color Layering Fawn in Sahara Sand, Soft Suede and Early Espresso inks. I die cut the fawn and adhered it to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. I stamped the leaves in Versamark ink on both Pumpkin Pie cardstock and Crushed Curry cardstock and die cut the leaves with the coordinating die. I adhered the leaves around the deer using 3M foam adhesive.
Here is the Color Layering Fawn set from Hero Arts that I used to create today's cards:
Additionally, I used the leaves and sentiment from the Second Spring stamp set by A Muse Studio to help complete these cards:
I hope you have enjoyed today's first seasonal cards and are as excited as I am about the holiday projects
to come. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
