Autumn

The first signs of Autumn are definitely appearing. It’s strange to think that not long ago it was light well into the evening!

I’m stopping by today to share a card inspired by the Autumn challenges currently running at CAS-ual Fridays (Autumn colours and a leaf) and CASology (Autumn).

I haven’t made any Autumn inspired cards before and was a bit stumped so I hit Pinterest for some inspiration. The sentiment “Falling for you” caught my eye (especially as the colourful falling leaves are my favourite part of Autumn).  I had a sort of light bulb moment and decided to make an Autumn themed love card featuring a tree and hearts for leaves. The problem however is that I do not own a tree stamp. My attempted drawings were AWFUL (there’s a reason I dropped out of A Level Art!). I turned to Digi stamps and while searching on Google (did you know that when first created Google was called BackRub?) I stumbled across the perfect tree digi from Birds Cards. Bird had provided a picture of a card that she’d made using the digi and what-do-you-know she’d also used hearts for  leaves (so not such a unique idea as I thought!!).

Here’s what I came up with:

A Kraft card base seemed the right choice for an Autumn themed card!

Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  1. Great use of colour and simple shapes! Love how the colour pop off that kraft card base! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!

  2. Beautiful! I love your little heart leaves hanging on to that cute tree 🙂 I had no idea that Google ever went by any other name – you learn something new everyday! 🙂
