Seasons are about to change so today I wanted to share a Fall card with an easy background!
When I think of a fall card I think of earth tones and leaves. Today’s card is not short on either of those elements. I’ve used glossy white cardstock to create an interesting background using the Sponge Brayers. I’ve added a simple stamped overlay of leaves using the Blended Season stamp set. To add a little sparkle, I added a die cut leaf from the Stitched Seasons Framelits using the Gold Glimmer Paper. The thank you greeting is from the same stamp set which I heat embossed in gold. A little gold on this fall card provides the perfect tones for the season.
I’ve also created a 3D look to the greeting that’s easy to achieve using the Bone Folder. I’ve included lots of tips in today’s video on how to use the glossy white cardstock as well as lots of tips for using the sponge brayer and brayering in general. I’ll also teach you how to create that fun curved greeting on this fall card.
The Stitched Seasons Framelits are part of the exclusive August promotion “Color Your Season”. You can purchase the stamp set and the framelits as a Bundle and save 10%. There’s even a new 10-pack of watercolor pencils available during August that you won’t want to miss.
