"Gratitude": Handmade Fall Themed Seasonal Card
So, without further ado... Here is a look at the NEW Card Sketch #11 over at Sketch N Scrap:
And here is my card:
I decided to do a "Fall" themed card since the season is officially upon us!!! I am also combining this card with the "Fall Themed" challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy Blog!!! I actually kept this card very simple, following the sketch almost to a tee!
I started by using Kraft as my base and then layered various papers by Paperhouse Studios and Recollections. I used a punch by EK Success that is meant to create 3D flowers but it looks great for leaves as well!!! I then created the layered die-cuts behind the trees using my Cricut Expression 2 and added them using pop-dots. I topped it off with the trees (which came in a Autumn pack by Jolees), a little hemp cord, and a leaf button. The "Gratitude" stamp is from Inkadinkadoo and was stamped using "Timber Brown" Staz On ink.
Well my friends... Thanks sooo much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
