Autumn is in the Air
Hello everyone, this is Joyce Schmidt, designer for beau Q Creations. I am bringing you Autumn wishes today so that you may begin to brush off the hot summer and start looking forward to the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and holidays to come. Join me today to make this fun card for Autumn using the new Fantasy Floral line coming very soon!
I decided to do a slimline card today. The size of the card measures 81/2 X 31/2 inches. I used the Elizabeth Craft Design soft finish cardstock 110lb to create the card base because I am using it as the base layer for my stencil. I used the rocks stencil (S038) and just used a little distress ink ad a blending brush, it was perfect for this card.
I used the soft finish card stock to die cut Elegant Ornament Die (1780). Using the ink to paper transfer technique, I colored the paper brown. I then roughly applied gold embossing powder to certain areas, and heat embossed the powder. It gives it an antique finish as if it was metal.
I die cut leaves from all 3 of the floral sets 1,2,3 and just inked them with browns, oranges, and a dash of green to give it a fall look.
Next, I used my Elizabeth Craft Designs tweezers to add a little shape to the leaves so they would easily take on a realistic look.
I hope you will try this easy fun autumn card using the leaves from the Fantasy Floral set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I was fun and easy to make as well as inspiring for the Fall Season. Thank you for joining me today and Happy Crafting!
