Sharing a fall card on this lovely day!
I know ya'll are probably tired of hearing me say this, but I started with my stash pile from other makes. I seriously have a huge pile of scraps from over the years. If only I had more time in my day to organize them. *sigh*.
I began this card by piecing together the pretty falling leaves paper to my red gingham, checked, patterned paper and adhering to my Buff Ivory card base. Some lace trimmings and pretty fall striped ribbon was added to the center along with some buttons and pearls. Using a piece of vintage book print from a thrift shop find, I die-cut a scalloped oval. For my focal images, Using a background stamp, I stamped two different background images on Buff Ivory cardstock and then used a pumpkin image to stamp over the background which was fussy cut. At the upper right corner of the card face, a sentiment from was stamped in a hand-cut banner.
For a finishing touch, I added some beautiful maple leaves made of mulberry paper to the focal image dressing up with a tangerine button, pearl, and a twine bow. Using the same striped coordinating ribbon, I tied a bow adding a chocolate brown button to the center with some hemp twine.
I hope you enjoy your day and get some crafty time in!
