It’s Fall Y’All!

Hello friends!

For my card today I’ve used acrylic bubbles and that is one of my faves to use on pretty much ANY style of creation I’m making and here you can see why:

Fall is certainly my most favorite time of the year and I really enjoy creating with all of the fun Autumn style products.  The wreath and sentiment that I’ve used are from the Fall Y’All stamp set and I’ve cut it out using the Fall Y’All Cut File that you can get for your cutting machine.  I have a Cricut so I’ve used that to cut it out with.

Now that cut file does NOT cut out the center of the wreath, so I just poked my scissors in the center of it that made a large enough hole so that I could fussy cut around the inside of it.    The cut file will also cut around for your sentiment.

The base of the card is an A2 top folding card.  I took a couple of the leaf images from the Autumn Essentials stamp set and heat embossed a couple of them on the card base with the Gilded EP.

I then glued on the cut out wreath image, popped up the sentiment in the center with foam tape and also added some gold thread behind it before attaching.  I took some white ink and sponged around the edges of the card base and then finally attached the acrylic bubbles over the card.

Here’s a closer look at the image and how I’ve got it colored in.  I’ve used Copic markers to color it along with the leaves on the sentiment.  I also took some distress ink and sponged around the edges of the cut images.

For the sentiment, I first stamped it with the black ink and then cleaned off the stamp and then stamped it again with the embossing ink.  I sprinkled the Gilded EP over the sentiment and then brushed off the EP on the leaf areas as I didn’t want those embossed.  I heat set only the wording.
