Grateful For You Fall Card All in a Box
I am grateful for you, my blog followers. This card I am sharing today is from the stamp set For All Things and yes, it’s a card in a box. This is the first card in a box that I have created. I know that they have been out there for some time. I guess I am just a little slow.
The original tutorials that I found created a larger card than the 5-1/2″ X 4-1/4″ size. However I wanted to be able to put it into a standard size envelope, so had to do some modifications to the box base.
This was a fun card to make and I used it for my monthly card class. The ladies were very pleased with the results.
I do love the Fall season with all its majestic colours of brilliant reds, oranges, yellows and purples.
The Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper came in very handily as I cut some of the leaves, acorns, and pine cones from the paper. I did say to the ladies that they would either hate me for love me for making them fussy cut so many leaves. However, the saving grace was that we did use the Big Shot and the Autumn Accents Bigz die to cut some of the leaves.
Stamps: For All Things.
Ink: Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede.
Paper: Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Color Me Autumn DSP.
Accessories: Big Shot, Autumn Accents Die, Project Life Cards & Labels, Linen Thread, Gold Basic Buttons, Sponge Daubers.
I cut a number of leaves using the Autumn Accents die from the designer papers – the ones that look like watercolor and then sponged around them with a complimentary colored ink. The sponging brought out the colour of the papers. The leaves and elements that were cut from the Blackberry Bliss colors added some pop.
I did CASE this card from someone on the internet, however, I am sorry that I have forgotten where I saw the card.
So once again I am grateful for you and your visits to my blog. When you stop by, please leave me a comment.
