Nicole here with you today to share an autumn themed card. I started with a sketch idea I scribbled out on a scrap of paper. It was the rough idea of what I wanted to do…
I wanted to use the Nature Garden papers from Prima for this. They are lovely muted autumn colours and perfect for what I needed. I cut some paper down to size (with a cream mat for behind it). I then distressed the edges of the paper. I die cut a panel for the center and used some distress inks to stamp some leaves on it. I then die cut another shape from the Prima papers for on top of this. I stamped and cut out one of the leaves individually.I used two colours to stamp, you can slightly see this in the image below. I tore a strip of paper to size to fit across my card and wrapped some twine around it. My two die cut pieces then got mounted on foam pads on top of this. I added some brads in the holes in the top die cut piece. The leaf got mounted into the center of this section.
I put this all together and mounted it onto a kraft card. I also added some flourishes in behind the panel to add some more colour. I diverged from my sketch a lot at this point and didn’t add in the tag elements I had sketched out. I may keep that idea for another card some time!
I hope you enjoyed this card and get inspired to use some of your craft supplies to create seasonal projects!
