Hello there! We hope your week has been going well. We’re gearing up for next week’s Release of new products (hint: ’tis the season!) And speaking of seasons, today, Kay Miller has created a wonderful Autumn card that is just right for counting our blessings. Check it out…
Let’s hear from Kay about her project…
Fall is in the air and that always puts me in the mood for making
fall cards! I don’t send out quite as many Thanksgiving cards as I do
Christmas cards, but I do make a few for the special friends and family
in my life. The card I’m sharing today features Autumn Wreath, an old favorite
Taylored Expressions stamp set, but one that is so cute and perfect for
Fall or Thanksgiving cards that it doesn’t go out of style!
I started with a piece of
Sugar Cube Cardstock, and using my round blending tool, I blended some
pink and purple ink in just a small circle in the center. I then colored
the wreath and little squirrel with Copic markers and fussy cut them
out. I adhered them with foam tape over the sponged circle, and stamped
the sentiment in black ink below. I then glued this down flat to an A2
size, top-folded card base.
I then took two shades of
kraft card stock to create my frame. With the darker of the two, I cut the larger frame from
Label Stacklets 3. From the lighter shade, I cut the next smaller frame.
I added a lot of foam tape to the underneath side of both of these, as I
didn’t want parts of them to sag or warp. I adhered the smaller cut
out frame (the lighter shade of kraft) down first, directly to my card. Then carefully lining everything up perfectly, I adhered the larger
frame on top of that. By layering the two frames like I did, it created a
really fun almost pop-up looking card! I hope you enjoyed seeing this
technique! This is something I will be doing again soon!
Thank you so much, Kay, for sharing such a wonderfully dimensional Fall card with us today! Be sure to visit Kay on her blog, My Joyful Moments, for more of her wonderful work. Have a joyful day!
