Grateful

#TCH #27 & https://doubletroublechallenge.blogspot.com/

The colour hues challenge requires orange and green and Double Trouble requires some kind of fall project so I combined the 2 and made this card. The card was inspired by one seen on Pinterest and this is my take on that card: http://iminhaven.blogspot.com/2016/03/mini-flowers-and-leaves.html. I don’t have nesting square dies so I used a diamond set from Spellbinders. PP is from MFT and I had to go through my box to find the pad which took forever as I kept missing it. After adding the PP to the card front I cut the white piece to the size I needed and played with die placement before cutting the openings. Stamps used were all from the Triple Play Holidays from GKD. After stamping I fussy cut the wreath and the tiny leaves. Inks used were Rusty Hinge and Peeled paint. Once dry I added some coppery glitter using a Sakura pen and I also added frames around the diamond shapes. I added foam tape to the back and popped this panel up on the PP. With a green Sakura pen I added a touch of green to the small orange leaves. I kept the card CAS and hubby said he liked it so I’m happy.

  1. Love the little wreath in the window frame and the peek of the pretty striped design papers. The falling leaves are a great embellishment… very pretty Fall card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and please come back for future fun challenges.

    1. Thanks Gayle. I spent the rest of today trying to make some Christmas cards. I don’t feel very inspired at the moment so take any idea that comes as a bonus.

    1. Thanks Judy – I got my stamp set from Diana when she was downsizing her items. First time I’ve really had it out and used it properly.

  4. This is great and I can definitely see that fall garland in the way you set it up. I love that you used diamonds rather than squares, they’re different and just perfect for this. Beautiful work Johanna!
