Tis the season to be creating fall cards!
Addicted to CAS just posted their new challenge: Autumn/Fall.
On my last card my kiddo really wanted me to use burlap instead of raffia (or as they called it, hay). So I told them they could chose the elements for this card. Burlap and pumpkins with a thanksgiving greeting – those were their choices.
I pulled out the Ocean tides again because it is such a great compliment to orange.
I used a retired StampinUp set. My kiddo also chose to have me color with Copics instead of watercoloring.
To adhere the burlap pieces I first held them to the back of the Ocean Tides panel with some tape; then I machine stitched them down. I covered the stitching with the linen thread.
The whole bunch is adhered to a Rustic Cream card base. I like that you see it through the edge of the burlap – it helps bring in the sentiment banner.
The pumpkins are popped with foam tape at different heights.
Thanks for taking a peek!
