I’m so happy to be joining the Sunny Studio design team! Fall is right around the corner and today I’m sharing a card featuring the new Autumn Greenery dies.
I used the beautiful assortment of leaves and acorns to create a fall wreath welcoming in the season. To start, I die-cut a paper from the new Critter Country paper pack and a piece of light gray cardstock using a Stitched Rectangle die. I embossed the gray cardstock using the Woodgrain embossing folder and adhered the pieces slightly overlapping to an A2 white card base.
Next, I die-cut the Snowflake Circle Frame from dark gray cardstock and adhered the frame portion to the card front. I die-cut the Snowflake Circle Frame again from white cardstock, inked the center portion with Speckled Egg distress ink and adhered it inside the frame.
For the Autumn Greenery, I die-cut the leaves from white cardstock and inked them using a combination of Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon distress inks. I also inked a few with Iced Spruce to balance the central Speckled Egg color. I sprinkled a little water on the leaves to add a little texture. I die-cut the acorns from Neenah 80lb Classic Crest solar white cardstock and colored them with Copics. I also die-cut a portion of the Pristine Poinsettia die from dark brown cardstock to give the look of a branch tucked in amongst the leaves. For added dimension, I only applied adhesive to half of each leaf so the edges of the leaves stick up a bit and I adhered the acorns using dimensional foam tape.
To finish, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Autumn Greetings stamp set on dark teal cardstock, fussy cut it out and added a few jewels from the Pastel Jewels mix around the sentiment for a little sparkle.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by today!
