Autumnal From Me To You

Hi there

I wanted to make a card for the current Clearly Besotted Challenge which has an Autumn/Halloween theme.  Where has the time gone?  I thought I had loads of time left for this one but the deadline is tomorrow so I grabbed some stash and came up with this card that I'm actually really pleased with...

The tree, leaves and sentiment were all from one CBS set.  First I stamped the tree and then the small leaf was stamped in four different ink colours.  This image was then cut out with a stitched oval die.  I scored three lines across a kraft card base to add a little interest and then lined up and stamped the sentiment above these.  The oval was popped up on 3D foam.

Materials used:

  • Clearly Besotted - Design A Tree
  • Ink: Versa Color - Pinecone, Bamboo, Khaki, Bark and Cinnamon
  • Die: Lil' Inker Designs - Stitched Ovals

I would also like to link this card up at the following challenge blogs:

Let's Craft and Create - Challenge #96 - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Challenge #70 - Fall/Autumn
The Paper Players - Challenge #214 - CAS Masculine Birthday Card

Thanks for your visit today, I'll be back tomorrow with more to share, and perhaps something else in between if I get the chance.

Bye for now
