Handmade Fall Cards

We've had the most unusual weather in Utah. We've gone from one of the most cold and rainy August on record to an unnaturally warm September - it was 90 degrees the other day! 

The weather may not be predictable, but we can always count on a little crafting to get us in the mood. Today Designer Monique Liedtke is sharing a duo of lovely fall cards...

Hello Imaginisce fans! It’s Monique, sharing two Fall cards featuring the fabulous “Bushel o’ Fall“ collection (can’t get enough of this collection!).

First of all the “Happy Fall” card. For this card I was looking for a bit of extra texture and decided to fill the shape of a die-cut (cardstock) apple with some green/white twine. 

This sounds probably more difficult than it actually was: I cut the shape of an apple with my Silhouette, made the topside sticky with an adhesive runner and wound a long string of twine on top of this, starting at the edge and winding this inward to the centre of the apple. For the finishing touch I made a little brown/white twine bow around the twig at the top of the apple.

Then the “Autumn Blessings” card. For this card I stamped the pie Snag’ems Stamp on to a piece of white cardstock and colored the image with 3 different colors Copics. 

Then I hand cut it and adhered it on top of the card (half over the “autumn blessings” die-cut”) and using my tiny attacher I adhered a little piece of brown/white twine to resemble steam coming from the warm pie.  

For both cards I selected a lot of different patterned papers (5 for the Happy Fall card and 6 for the Autumn Blessings card) and just layered these on top of each other, also using an adhesive runner. Before adhering this pile to the white cardstock base I machine stitched them first. I love layering and machine stitching on my projects a lot!

Thanks for stopping by our blog today! Hope I’ve inspired you to scrap a little today!

Supplies: Imaginisce: patterned paper, die-cuts, bling, pie stamp (Bushel o’Fall); American Crafts: cardstock, adhesive runner.
