Now to say all of that, I will tell you that today the temperature was 89 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. We were soooooo hot. It just seemed awkward picking a pumpkin in such heat. But, fall weather is on the way. A cold front is coming in and we will have nighttime lows in the 30's and daytime highs in the 50's. I am thrilled. So here is a card to celebrate some real fall weather.
The card base is a buttery yellow from The Vintage Fashion Colors pack by The Paper Company. The mat is ivory card stock that was embossed with a pumpkin vine folder. I inked the mat with bronze and brown inks. The bottom of the mat was cut with a Martha Stewart wildflower border punch.
Now for a little creativity, I took some mustard gold braided trim and ribbon weaved it. I then cut flowers from an old sewing pattern. I layered different sizes and shapes of flower petals with a brad that I had cut and then inked the edges with several different Tim Holtz distress ink pads. I added a glittered epoxy sticker to the flower center. I attached the flower to the braided trim with the brad. The the woven trim was attached to the card with scor-tape. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs. And to finish the card, I added three little orange gems from Recollections.
I now have some pretty fall cards that will go just perfect with the weather to come this week! Thanks for stopping by. Come back and visit often.
