Fall Cards


Just a few quick cards I made today for my mother-in-law. The first one is a coffee stained tag stamped with a vintage style pilgrim girl. Then I sprinkled her with mica glitter. The background is embossed dark brown cardstock. I used a thick wine colored ribbon and gathered it along the side. Then tied the bottom with a piece of homespun and attached fall themed embellishments.














This next little cutie was a bit of a challenge. It took me FOREVER to get it to the point where I was satisfied. I used my cricut to cut the scalloped card with "A Child's Year" cartridge. The leaves and stamp were also cut with this cartridge (it is an AWESOME cartridge and I'm so glad I got it!) I used some old book pages to make the scalloped circle and doily border. The background paper is K&Company's new harvest line. Then I attached an embossed acorn sticker to the center of the orange circle.





And this card was similar to the one above. I used the same paper but stitched the outside edges (without thread).












Enjoy!
