We have a super fun sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches. You must stop by the blog and see all of the variations on the sketch by the design team. We have a great variety of cards this week!
My favorite season is Fall. I love the changing of the colors. Our fall
season is usually short…but I love the time when the leaves change
colors, before the snow starts flying! The changing of colors was the
perfect inspiration for my card.
My falling leaf was colored with the new alcohol markers by Close To My Heart. I cut out and applied another leaf image on top to give my card more dimension and to insure that the leaf was the focal point of the card. My decorative mats were cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. The cut that I used is actually one of the mini album pages. There are a variety of mini album pages included on the Artiste cartridge. I use the cuts often for making cards. For this design, I cut my mat and layer….then I threaded my ribbon through the holes to tie my bow.
The inside of my card was finished out with another design from the Artiste cartridge. After cutting out and applying the Give Thanks sentiment. I went over the Give with Almond Glitz Glitter Gel.
Here is a look at some of the Thanksgiving images on the Artiste cartridge-
I can’t wait to make some of the 3-D pumpkins that are included…watch for them coming soon!
