Trio of Fall Cards


I try to send out snail mail on a regular basis, but have fallen a bit behind so I whipped up these cards to send out to some friends. Most of the cards I send go to fellow crafty ladies so I try to create something that I feel captures a bit of their personality. I sure hope I succeed! :)


The first card I made was inspired by Lisa over at Remember the Good Times. If you're not familiar with her projects, she make multi-dimensional goodness and even has her own shop. I paired two papers for my background, using a wood grain embossing folder on the wood grain print. I die cut some leaves, stitched on a clear tag, and put to use some enamel dots.


Next I got into the Halloween spirit and even though George the Ghost has made it onto other fall projects, he is just too cute not to use again. I blew the dust off of my Cricut Explore Air and cut out my trick or treat sentiment, hand cut a tag, and used up a few more enamel dots.


For my last card, I kept it on the simpler side because I really wanted all of the text and type to stand out. I layered my sentiment on patterned paper and then stitched a border around it all.

It's not too late to pop a card in the mail for someone to wish them a happy fall or Halloween!

Supplies:
6x6 paper pad - {Cedar Lane} Pink Paislee, {After Dark} Crate Paper
craft dies - Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves
embossing folder - Shimelle Woodgrain
enamel dots, Doodlebug, Basic Grey
mini flair - Scaredy Cat Feed Your Craft
Trick or Treat font - Lemondrop

  5. Awww, your cards are all so lovely :)
    I like them all, the first one really grabbed my attention with the subtle colours and then the pop with the colourful leaves.
    I was just thinking of this again. I have so many hoarded cards I should send out…just because :)
