There's nothing I like to make more than cute cards for my grandchildren. This first one I gave to my grandson Atticus because I thought he'd love the adorable fox image.
I stamped the fox image separately, colored it in, and popped it up on dimensionals. The leaves were cut using a die cutting machine.
The acorn was also stamped, colored and cut out separately, then glued to the page. The circle panels were cut using Spellbinder's dies. I cut one ordinary circle out of designer paper that coordinates with the background designer paper. Then I cut a second circle, this one with scallops, out of olive green card stock. The sentiment is a MFT die cut, and I cut it twice, once in white and once in rust, then I stamped a sentiment on it.
This is the card I made for my granddaughter. I used a retired Crafty Secrets vintage fall image and lots of colorful, coordinating designer paper to make this card.
First, I colored image in using all fall colors, then I cut it out and layered it twice, once on purple paper, then on orange. I used three different fall prints on this card, stamping the sentiment on the solid purple panel. I then stamped a small leaf, colored it, fussy-cut it out, and glued it at the end of the sentiment.
For embellishments, I added a couple of purple adhesive crystals to the far upper right corner of the card and a double, rustic bow above the sentiment.
Finally, this was a card I didn't make but it was sent to me in celebration of my birthday. Because my birthday lands in fall, the creator used fall images for my card.
I love how they tied a knot with rustic twine above the acorns.
Have a Great Day! Amy
