Oh, I had so many ideas in my head, and in the end, probably didn’t end up with a card as clean and simple as I could have! That’s unusual, because I really like the CAS style, but I like my final result, and this looks more complex than it really is! I used last week’s As You See It sketch (it’s closed now, though) because I really loved it, and it fit the look I was trying to achieve:
I love this Darice embossing folder but I only use it a few times each fall! I chose Mossy Meadow as my top layer, a color that I like but sometimes forget about! I took a page from an old house plant book and layered it behind my Lawn Fawn stitched leaf, then added a sentiment from Happy Scenes on an Itty Bitty Banner diecut:
Some sponging, linen thread and a couple of sequins finished it off. I did add a little line of Crumb Cake-stamped acorns down the left side, which is from an older autumn Impression Obsession set. This was a sympathy card for a fellow cardmaker and I hope it brought her a wee bit of comfort.
What CAS leafy creation will you share with us this week? Check out the other designers’ cards…not all of them are fall leaves, either! Here are their links:
Cassidy took her tall doll (from a friend in Australia) and dressed her in some of her own clothing…pants and hightops….. and a doll bathrobe! Then she helped her “walk” down the hall! And yes, there’s a half-naked baby laying on the bed too!
Later on, she changed her into her own jacket and then used the sleeves to tie her to the swing! She has imagination!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
