2 Fall Cards

Since I was so slow at getting a start on my cards with a Fall theme, I got busy and now I have 2 to share with you today.

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"

The first one is pretty basic. I really like how the black CS and black embossed sentiment pops off the card. The leaves are embossed with silver. I used Shapeabilities Ribbon Tags Trio DC and added the Nestabilities Labels Four DC to make a larger area to stamp the sentiment.

Recipe: CTMH CS-Vineyard Berry, Goldrush, Black & White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Black, Vineyard Berry & Autumn Terracotta, CTMH SS-Autumn Splendor & Intrinsic Backgrounds, Silver & Black Embossing Powder, Foam Squares, CTMH Vineyard Berry 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Shapeabilities Ribbon Tags Trio DC, Nestabilities Labels Four DC.
The second card I have to share with you uses old CTMH B&T paper, but I really liked the fall colours in it.
Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
I used the Rock and Roll Technique on the leaf using 3 colours...Buttercup, Autumn Terracotta, and Garnet.
I didn't realize I was short on Garnet CS when I started making my cards (I usually make at least 6 at a time), and I ended up running out before I finished the last 2 cards. So, I had to alter the last 2 slightly. I used a wider grosgrain ribbon and a small piece of Garnet CS to frame the sentiment. It didn't turn out too bad, if I say so myself...a teeny tiny disaster averted.
Recipe: CTMH Paper Pack-Harvest, CTMH CS-Colonial White, White Daisy, Garnet & Sunflower, CTMH Ink-Black, Grey Flannel, Garnet, Autumn Terracotta, Cocoa, Buttercup & Tulip, CTMH SS-Autumn Splendor, Foam Squares, Grosgrain Ribbon, Martha Stewart Embossed Zigzag Punch, Nestabilities Labels Two DC.
