Autumn Card

Autumn Card
Since today was "World Card Making Day" I wanted to try make at least one card. We were gone most the day so I just got started once my girls went to bed. This card came together quickly and was alot of fun. I am not really into Halloween but I love Fall, however, I don't think I have ever made a Fall card. I normally focus on Christmas or other occasion cards. So here is what I came up with. I will probably turn it into a birthday card for my mom because it is this month.





This card was made completely from Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge. The pumpkin was cut twice at 3". On the green layer I hid some of the face cuts on my Gypsy. The tree was cut at 3" also. Autumn was cut at 1". I inked everything with a dark brown Color Box Cat's Eye ink pad. It even made some shading on the tree. I enhanced some of the details with a brown glitter pen. I know the leaves are a little big for the size of tree I have but I really like them & I haven't used them on anything yet. I got the leaves from one of the craft stores a long time ago. But there are so many leaves found on different cartridges. Search "Leaf". I popped up the leaves and pumpkin to give it added dimension.

  2. Your card is really pretty. I Got a Gypsy last week & learned something new about how "search" works from you, thanks so much. I'm glad I decided to take you up on your offer to see your card.
    I got here from over at My Pink Stamper's fun.
