Autumn Squares

Hi there

I decided to make a quick card tonight while my fella is watching the footie.  I still had my autumn coloured inks out on the table so I stayed with that theme and came up with this.

I stamped some small leaves randomly on a scrap of white card in various colours and then die cut sections with a small square die.  I matted some white card onto an olive green frame and adhered this to the white base card.  The squares were popped up on 3D foam.  As much as I love CAS cards I felt this needed to be framed to bring it all together.  The sentiment was stamped in the same colour ink as the darkest leaf, I wanted to blend with the design and avoid using black.
Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Autumn Flowers; Penny Black - Salutations
  • Ink: Versa Color - Pine Cone, Bark, Paprika, Bamboo and Khaki
  • Die: Xcut - Nested Squares
  • Cardstock: Papermania - Premium Textured Cardstock (green); white card from stash
And I'm linking this one up to the following challenges:
Addicted to CAS #23 - Autumn/Fall
Addicted to Stamps and More #65 - Photo Inspiration
That's all from me tonight, thank you so much for visiting.  I'll be back very soon with more to share.
Take care
