Autumn Is Calling

The challenge that was recently posted on the DRS Designs blog this past Thursday is to create a project for any Fall holiday. My challenge entry was created with Thanksgiving in mind.

Both the sentiment and the image on this card are by DRS Designs. I started with the Fall Leaf With Acorn (471F) and colored it with Copic markers. I used an oval Nestability die to cut it out, masked it and sponged light brown ink around the image while it was still in the die. I love the nice, clean, framed edge this creates around the image! I think it really helps to make the colors in the image pop! Then I matted it with an orange scallop oval. The vertical panel was started with craft card stock. The upper portion of the Autumn Is Calling Greeting (150F) was stamped at the top with brown ink and an orange ribbon was tied in a knot and wrapped around it. Next, it was matted with brown card stock and then again with orange card stock that had been decorated with a border punch. As you can see the matted image was adhered just off center on the vertical panel. The card base was cut for an A2 size card from dark brown card stock and then the card front was embossed with a leaf embossing folder, and assembled as shown.

Head on over to the DRS Designs blog for all the details regarding this challenge and how you can win a store voucher to shop for free from the DRS Designs online catalog.

Hope you all had a safe and spooky Halloween as well as a relaxing weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
