Fall Is In The Air



WOW!  It’s already September and soon the leaves on the trees will start changing.  I live on the East Coast and what a beautiful site it is to see all the gorgeous Fall colors.  Today I have a new card for you depicting leaves in their Fall splendor.  But before I share my card I would like to show you the digital package called Autumn Blessings by Daydream Designs.



Autumn Blessings


My Project



DETAILS:  The round shape of the card was created using a 5-1/2 round die and Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory 80#.  I used Shabby Shutters Distressed Ink Pad to the card front which matched the green in some of the leaves on the Wreath.  The Leaf Wreath was cut out using my Silhouette Portrait and the Print and Cut option.  The sentiment is from the digital stamps collection Autumn Blessings.  The wreath was also cut from Neenah card stock.  The glitter dots were made using Glitter Cinnamon Stickles.  The acorn embellishment on the bow was cut with the Silhouette and then covered with Distress Glitter Tarnished Brass. (The Distress Glitter Tarnished Brass is very close in color to the Cinnamon Stickles). The bow is made from satin ribbon in a bronzy brown shade.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you will visit the McMahon Five Designs Blog to see more projects created by my fellow design team members.

Have a wonderful day!
