Gently Falling Collage Acorn Card

I’m still using that One Sheet Wonder image sheet – here’s one with embossed acorns made from the Autumn Accents die and the Square Lattice embossing folder.  The wood button give the card a more earthy, rustic feel.  The phrase is from Six-Sided Sampler

World Card-Making Day – Gently Falling Oak Leaf Card

Today is World Card-Making Day!   What cards do you need to make?  I can always use “Thinking of You” cards – they serve so many purposes!

Love this color combination for fall – Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, and Brushed Gold.  So very elegant.  The leaf was embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

Sending cards with lots of embellishments can be tricky with the postal service.  So here’s a quick tip – use cardstock circles instead of brads.  They add interest, layers, but not a lot of bulk.  This way the card can be easily mailed.

Secret Garden Square Lattice Card

Secret Garden is another stamp set carried over from the Occasions Mini Catalog that I love!  The bold images have such a tropical feel.  Not quite enough to bring out my coconut bra, but I do hear the Hawaiian guitars strumming in the background when I use this set.

I used the Square Lattice embossing folder after I stamped the images.  I doubled up on the butterfly punch and attached the top, folded one with a glue dot.  My stampers never used the ticket punch before – it is perfect for some of our smaller phrases (this phrase is from Sweet Essentials)!  Now that I look again at the card, I need to add some gems to the centers of the butterflies.  They need a little sparkle!
