Autumn is my favorite season since I was a Florida girl turned North Carolina girl. The leaves changing is so amazingly pretty that I look forward to it. Even though I don’t like bare trees and the cold 😞
Grab you Aqua Painter filled with water, watercolor paper, ink and For All Things stamp set. I lightly wet the paper and then stamped on top that area. This is what will create a gr at water color look but also keep most of the outline of the image. Then just free hand cut those leaves out.
To create your card base take a 8 1/2″ by 11″ card stock and cut in half at 5 1/2″. Then you will have 2 card bases from just one sheet. Score the base at 4 1/4″ on the landscape side. Now you card base is ready.
Cut a piece of Very Vanilla and Winter Wonderland Vellum for your card front at 4″ by 5 1/4″. A lot of adhesive shows through vellum so for the card I figured out where I wanted my leaves and used Tombow multipurpose glue to glue them to the vellum. From there I glued the vellum just behind the leaves and attached to the Very Vanilla card front.
Last thing to add is the sentiment and silver thread.. To do this I stamped the “hello fall!” on Very Vanilla using Blackberry Bliss ink. Sorry I’ll have to measure how big this piece and the Cherry Cobbler piece is. I cut it just so there is enough at the ends so I could make it into a banner. I made the Cherry Cobbler slightly bigger then the sentiment then made it into a banner as well. I glued the sentiment to the Cheery Cobbler banner. I then took the silver thread and made three circles around my fingers and adhere it to the back of the Cherry Cobbler piece with tear tape (which I forgot to include in my list below 😱). Then added 2 Stampin’ Dimensionals (which are a must on like every project!) then centered onto the card.
Ready to give a wine bottle gift tag a try? It’s a great way to add a special touch to a not very personal gift of wine. There’s only a few steps different in the tag competed to the card. The measurement of the tag base is 8 1/4″ by 2 1/4″. Score at 2 1/4″ and use the bracket punch in the middle of the small square on top.
The tag front with Very Vanilla and the Winter Wonderland Vellum measures 6″ by 2″.
The sentiment “Grateful for You” is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on a piece of Very Vanilla and punched out with the Decorative Label punch. The punched out piece is then trimmed to look like the picture above. Add some silver thread to the Cherry Cobbler banner and Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment.
Thanks for checking out my post today! My next post I will be using the For All Things stamp set to add a leaf to a 3D Pumpkin using the Curvy Keepsake Box Die.
