Hello crafty friends. I have a set of three cards today with a very autumnal vibe. I have done the classic thing of cutting paper up and gluing it back together so that I could cut it up again!
The papers come from the Autumn Stroll paper pack, and I cut strips of a few of the papers, using both sides of the paper. I used a large roll of double sided tape and cut a piece the size of a card front, attached it to card, then glued the strips to this.
I then used the Stacked Squares die and cut several of these from white cardstock. I then cut the panel that I’d made, being careful to centre the die on the panel. This gave me three separate ‘pieces’ – the outside remainder, shown above, the border section, shown below, and the individual middle pieces for a third card. The card above uses three white diecuts stacked up inside the border.
I used the same leaf design on each of the cards. The leaf is stamped using the Sketchy Florals – Hello, and embossed in either Gold embossing powder or Copper embossing powder, depending on the card, and then cut out using the matching die. The card above uses a watercolour panel that I had in my stash.
Finally, the centres! I glued a single layer of the white diecut, and popped the individual pieces up with foam tape.
The sentiments all come from the Black and White Sentiments pack from Paper Rose Studio. This pack is so well used that it is almost in shreds these days. There are still lots of useful sentiments left though, so I’ll keep going for a while yet!
I hope that you’ve enjoyed these cards and that you see a llama today. (Just checking whether anyone reads the final greetings!)
Until next time,
