I am still fussing around "recuperating" from my vacation, so I thought I would post a couple cards I made last month but never posted. They both use the new SU set, Autumn Days and are both basically the same; one is simple and the other is a little stepped up.
To create the wreath, I traced a circle on my cardstock in pencil (I think I used a nestie), then just randomly stamped the leaf images in different fall colors, turning the stamp so that the leaf was in different directions as I went around. I added the spray image, stamped in Gold Encore ink, again, positioning it in different directions. The background was stamped with the little speckle image from Itty Bitty Backgrounds. Two "corners" of Brushed Gold cardstock add a little interest. This card is 4 1/4" square.
This standard-sized card is created in the same way, but I used Eggplant Envy for the spray instead of gold, and added some accents with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Dusty Durango ribbon, some grosgrain ribbons and a punched element. The element was made by cutting a punchout from the Curly Label punch and layering it on top of itself to make a narrower embellishment. The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes fits perfectly in the Word Window punch and covers up the line where the pieces come together.
Thanks for visiting today! Remember to come back tomorrow for the Color Throwdown and the Diva Coffee Break Design Challenge!
