Fallen Leaves

Welcome my crafty friends, So glad you stopped by. Today I have a card I created using Susan Garden Club – Autumn Flora – Woodland Garden Leaves.

Card base 6″ X 6″ from white cardstock

Colored mat is 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhered to card front using clear double sided adhesive

Die cut is Spellbinders Nestabilities Candlewick Square Etched Dies cut from white cardstock. Susan’s Autumn Quotes Stamp Set was used for sentiment stamped in black ink before attaching to card. Dimensional tape was used to adhere die cut to card front.

Using brown cardstock cut 2 berry branches adhere 1 on top of other using liquid glue. Shade using brown ink. Die cut little flowers from yellow cardstock shaped using medium ball tool. Kids Choice Glue was used to adhere little flowers to berry branch. Using Ripened Pumpkin Nuvo Drops make bittersweet berries on branches set aside to dry.

Happy Fall Die D Lite set was used for the basket. Basket was cut twice once from dark brown cardstock and wood print cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on back. Adhered 2 pieces together using Kids Choice Glue.

Leaves were cut from white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The smaller leaves were used for this card and I just did them randomly.

Basket was adhered to card front using Kids Choice Glue. I bent the basket with my fingers to give dimension before adhering. Once glue is set the bittersweet branch was added then the leaves were added using same glue.

Thanks for stopping by and my card has given you inspiration.

Until next time – Happy Crafting!
