thinking of you fall card

You can make this thinking of you fall card in a snap!  When I sat down to make this card I had a few goals.  I wanted to use the new Chicken Wire Elements with a twist and I wanted to use the new Falling for Leaves Bundle.  Hope you like my result.  The key material turned out to be sponges.  I used both the sponge brayer and Stampin' Sponges to add color to the Chicken Wire and the die-cut leaves.

  1. Here are the steps I followed:
  2. Flip the Chicken Wire over the white matte side.  Use a sponge brayer with Soft Suede ink to color the wire element (it's really made of paper, but looks like wire)
  3. Cut a Fresh Fig layer to 11″ by 4 1/4″ score and fold to make the card base
  4. Cut a layer of Crushed Curry to 5 1/2″ by 4″
  5. Stamp the leaf stamps in Fresh Fig, Mellow Moss and Soft Suede
  6. Die cut them with the matching shapes
  7. Sponge stamped leaves with Crushed Curry using Stampin' Sponges
  8. Stamp the greeting with Fresh Fig and cut out with Layered Square Die
  9. Attach all the stamped and die cut element with Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals
  10. Tie Fresh Fig ribbon in a bow and attach with Mini Glue Dots

Using the dimensionals to attach the leaves and the greeting serve two purposes:

  • give the card depth to create more interest
  • hold the chicken wire to the card stock
