I created two Fall cards featuring the fabulous “Bushel o’ Fall“ collection (can’t get enough of this collection!).
First of all the “Happy Fall” card. For this card I was looking for a bit of extra texture and decided to fill the shape of a die-cut (cardstock) apple with some green/white twine.
This sounds probably more difficult than it actually was: I cut the shape of an apple with my Silhouette, made the topside sticky with an adhesive runner and wound a long string of twine on top of this, starting at the edge and winding this inward to the centre of the apple. For the finishing touch I made a little brown/white twine bow around the twig at the top of the apple.
Then the “Autumn Blessings” card. For this card I stamped the pie Snag’ems Stamp on to a piece of white cardstock and colored the image with 3 different colors Copics.
Then I hand cut it and adhered it on top of the card (half over the “autumn blessings” die-cut”) and using my tiny attacher I adhered a little piece of brown/white twine to resemble steam coming from the warm pie.
For both cards I selected a lot of different patterned papers (5 for the Happy Fall card and 6 for the Autumn Blessings card) and just layered these on top of each other, also using an adhesive runner. Before adhering this pile to the white cardstock base I machine stitched them first. I love layering and machine stitching on my projects a lot!
Supplies: Imaginisce: patterned paper, die-cuts, bling, pie stamp (Bushel o’Fall); American Crafts: cardstock, adhesive runner.
