Hello fellow crafters! Anyone that knows me knows that I love fall. It is my favorite season. Maybe it's because I was born in the fall. I love the crispness of the air and nature's colorful palette in the leaves.
One of my college roommate's birthdays falls in the same month as mine and just 4 days apart. This card was made for her.
In my first step I created the wreath by cutting branches from an IO Wide Tree die in GKD Kraft card stop and colored it with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink. The base for the wreath was prepared by die cutting a smaller circle inside a larger circle resulting in a large "O". The die cut tree branches were then adhered to the base circle until it was completely covered.
Next, using the dies from an IO Small Leaf set (5 leaf dies), each leaf was cut several times from differed colored card stock (fall colors). I applied Inka Gold to the leaves using a mini applicator to give them some interest and shine. The leaves were then randomly adhered to the wreath with glue dots and dimensionals.
The base card was created in GKD Pure Luxury Ivory card stock. A wide strip of ivory card stock was embossed with a Sizzix Corrugated EF and then matted with GKD Sweet Mango and Chocolate Brown card stock. This was then adhered to the card base with foam tape. As a final step, the sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink from GKD Country Roads 2 stamp set and a brown bow was added to the wreath for a finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by today! Until next time, have a great week
