A Handmade Fall Card “Fall Leaves”

This is a pre-scheduled post.  I am in Illinois helping my daughter with the grandchildren.  They do not have Internet service so I will not be able to respond to comments or visit your blogs until I return.

I am going to take a brief break from Bible Journal pages for the next few weeks so I can show you the fall cards I made for my family.  I don't make Halloween cards anymore, but I still love to give my kids and grandkids a holiday card and some treats, so I make fall cards instead.  

This card I made for my son.  I kept it as masculine as possible by using a plaid background in fall colors and leaf stamps.


All the stamps are old.  I really don't see the need to buy new fall stamps every years, so I just keep using the ones I have.  The sentiment is an old Inkadinkado sold stamp.  I colored the stamp with water markers to get the different colors in the image.  The leaves are from an old Stampin' Up! set.  I stamped them in a ink pad that has several different shades of ink in one pad.

I wrapped raffia around the main image panel and tied in a bow then secured a leaf brad on top.  The entire main image panel was popped up on dimensionals.


I matted the card three times before securing it to a white card base:  the plaid designer paper, the solid peach, and the solid brown.  The ovals was matted over the same brown card stock.


Have A Great Day!  Amy

  6. A beautiful card Amy. Love these fall colors and it makes a great masculine card. I too don't buy stamps often anymore, they all seem like repeats!

    1. Thanks Ellie! I tried to make it more appropriate for a guy. And isn't that true about the stamps? It's like they can't think of anything new.
