The weather has turned more autumn like here in Illinois and I think that made it even easier to make some pretty fall cards to share with you today!

I created two different cards using lots of my electronic die cutting machine and patterned papers from Imaginisce.  I even snuck some stamping and I Rocks in there too!

I created this card by cutting out a birch tree background and backing it with wood grain patterned paper.  I then stamped my owl stamp twice, once on white and once on the red patterned paper.  I cut out the portion I wanted in red and glued that to the white owl.  

After adhering my owl and sentiment, I went thru and added red sparkly I Rocks throuhgout the trees to add some extra twinkle.  What I love about this card is I could see adding colors or changing colors and being able to make it work in winter too!

I die cut a cascade of falling leaves for this card and a pretty paper bow making use of several fall colored patterned papers.

The leaves came in two pieces - one full leaf and one half leaf.  I stitched the second half down and then folded it upward to add some dimension.  A simple sentiment at the bottom was all there was room for and really all this card needs!

Supplies Used:
Imaginisce: Patterned Paper (Perfect Vacation, Welcome Spring, Childhood Memories), Stickers (Childhood Memories) Owl Snag Em Stamp, I Rock
