happy FALL

Hi friends! I hope you had a fabulous weekend – they sure go by fast, don’t they?! Several weeks ago I shared that I’m guest designing over the next three months for Make The Cards Challenge and I’m back to share another inspiration project! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created this pretty Fall slimline card for MTCC #17 – Color Challenge! Fall is my favorite time of the year because of the colors, the crisp cool weather, and the wonderful sights, sounds and smells!

This graphic screams Fall to me with this gorgeous color palette, so that’s the direction I went! No brainer! ;)

I created my preferred slimline card base size of 9″ x 3-3/4″ (because it fits so nicely in a #10 business envelope) from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and layering panels from a pretty leaf patterned paper and gold foil cardstock. I die cut stitched rectangles and stitched alphabet letters from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock along with leaves stamped in brown ink on the four colors of cardstock. The round gold foil cardstock elements were negative space leftovers from another project that I had out on my desk thinking that I might use them on another project, and Voila! They came in pretty handy for this card! ;) Once everything was assembled and adhered in place, I stamped ‘happy’ in brown ink on a scrap of white cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it in the upper left quadrant.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of patterned paper and cardstock, stamped the sentiment and leaf in brown ink and layered the panel on dark orange cardstock.

And one more peek… such a fun challenge with an amazingly gorgeous color palette!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
