Hi everyone. There is a new challenge beginning at Cardz 4 Galz, and the theme this time round is ‘Welcome Autumn/Fall‘. In England it’s called Autumn, but as I have many stamps and dies from the USA – I have used stamps from my stash for the sentiment:
I started by die-cutting some bronze muted shiny card with the dies from Concord and 9th ‘Everyday Bouquet’ die set – the squares, the leaves – and then glued them dwon as you see. I did run the little die-cuts through my Xyron to get them sticky on the back.
Sometimes I let leaves and branches etc move around on my cards, but I wanted these to be stuck down – no idea why, I just thought it would look better. It’s strange how we sometimes go with an idea – with no thought process – maybe just a ‘gut feeling‘………..
I was going to emboss the sentiment, but decided to stamp in another brown, keeping the whole card quite simple – yet I feel it’s also quite elegant.
I hope you can come and join us with this theme, and I look forward to seeing your creations in our gallery. 🙂 🙂
