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
