I love making fall cards, my favorite color pallet is derived from fall colors. I love the deep reds, purples, golds, and oranges I see on the trees around me.
I started with paper colored with alcohol ink and gold mixative:
I cut the leaves with old Marvy metal punches, and curled the leaves around a pencil. Added a fun die cut background and an old SU! sentiment and done!! Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By and show us your crispy fall creation!!!
If you follow this blog, you already know that i give away mot of my cards. Some to friends and family, but most of them are donated to Cards for Soldiers (you can find them on Facebook). I try to make cards that can serve multiple purposes. These, for example, can be used for a birthday, get well, good luck, etc. Stampin' Up Dandelion Wishes, Oxide Inks.
I have been missing from the blogosphere for a while - even neglecting my Words 2 Craft By i-team privileges. All is well. I was able to spend a long weekend with my brothers and sisters on Lake Erie. The very next weekend, my husband, son, and son's girlfriend left for a week at the beach in South Carolina. A few hours after our return home, our son left to go back to college. In between, I tried to work as much as possible to make up for the time I was spending away. What a whirlwind!!
The embossing folder was a Tuesday Morning find from Richard Gray, and the texture reminded me of warm winter sweaters. I mounted the textured kraft on matching paper, and popped up both panels with dimensional tape. While I like the eggshell color paper and proportions better, I like the twine on the white card better than the twill tape. Option are good, learning is great!!!
