I don’t know about you, but when I was walking around with the kiddos yesterday, it hit me how the trees have seemed to go from green with some reds and yellows, to almost bare with some reds, oranges, and yellows barely hanging on! I guess I can’t pretend that Fall isn’t totally here. 🙂
So, when I was working on cards for my Fabulous Fall class, I had to go for those warm and cozy tones to fill up the card. And this is what I came up with:
I played with textures and golden colors in this card. I swear, More Mustard cardstock gets so neglected at my house until fall time! But here are some of the touches we did to put together this card:
1. We stamped the leaf image from Lovely as a Tree with Versamark and then used Clear embossing powder to emboss the image. Then we sponged with Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard ink to make the glowing color. You can also see where we took the Natural Composition specialty designer series paper and colored it in with ink and a water brush/pen. It makes a really pretty subtle color effect.
2. We also spritzed the card base with Gold Smooch Spritz. It is always so hard to capture that in a photo but you can kind of see it here.
3. Finally, I had made a version of this card that didn’t have the extra Chocolate Chip cardstock matting the cardfront (and acting as the cardbase); but just having More Mustard as the cardbase didn’t quite work. So, I went with the dark cardbase and just added an insert with a fun stamped touch.
So in the end, we did lots of different little things that came together for a pretty and rich effect! What do you think? Is it “Fall” enough for you? 🙂
