Lighthearted Leaves


Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Design Team Blog Hop.  This week we have another fun Fall card challenge…use any of the incolors from last year (PERFECT for FALL!) on your card.  LOVE these colors for fall!

SatHopFallInColorsThis is a sketch from a couple weeks bake from the CAS(E) this Sketch site.  I had bookmarked it and wanted to play along then ran out of time.  It was PERFECT for what I wanted to do today!

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 5, run through the Softly Falling Embossing folder and add to card front using dimensionals (I did mine with the points facing down instead of up)
  • Blackberry Bliss – 1/2 x 3 3/8, cut into banner on both sides and add to card front on an angle.
  • Lost Lagoon – cut our the large square (window) from the Square Pillowbox thinlit set, stamp greeting using Basic Black Archival ink, add adhesive to the back then loop Gold Cording Trim.  Add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut our small leaves (Square Pillowbox Thinlit) from Hello Honey and Tangelo Twist and add to Lost Lagoon tag to finish off.
