Today is Day 3 of my 7 Days of Holiday Catalog Sneak Peeks! So far I have shared a Christmas quilt card and a silver and red window card. What have you thought so far? Today we’ll take a break from Christmas and talk about a fall card. I looooovvveeee fall, and I love how today’s card turned out. I made it with our gorgeous new Painted Harvest stamp set.
I really like how the different textures work together on this card. I embossed the card base with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, and then stamped a leaf from the Painted Harvest set across the top. On the leaves as well as the sunflowers, I did some first and second generation stamping (stamping off) to get some lighter, and some darker images. That adds depth to the card as well. I topped it off with a little Wood Textures designer paper and some ribbon and lace.
What makes a pretty card prettier? A pretty envelope that coordinates. This card spoke to me and told me I needed to make a matching envelope for it. I’m glad I listened.
So now that I’ve told you I love this card, I’ll tell you that while I was making it, I didn’t like it…at all. Sometimes that happens in our crafting. Projects don’t always turn out as we envision, and they don’t always look great in the middle of construction. But continue on, and you’ll end up with something wonderful in the end!
