It rained all day and the breeze was chilly. I love fall, love cooking comfort food, apple picking, taking pictures of the kids in the leaves… Today inspired me to make my second swap a Fall card. Sorry if you never want summer to end… I’m in a fall frenzy!
Again, Sherida’s swap is about the holiday mini catalogue. I used the autumn splendor and the wandering words stamp sets. I also used autumn meadows designer series paper. Have you ever noticed that Stampin’up! advertises which color is used in the designer paper. That is what inspired me to used chocolate chip, really rust, very vanilla and more mustard card stock. I also used these inks and markers to add speckles with the spritzer. Just love the rustic look. I tide the nuts and my greeting with linen thread.
To make your leaves look like real ones, stamp the image. cut it out then crumble your leaf. You can even wet the paper and crumble it up.
