Happy Fall

Hi Crafty Friends!

Welcome to our October Karen Burniston Designer Challenge.

Check out Karen Burniston's blog on Wednesday (US Time) when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month, plus Karen will have an amazing video tutorial to share with us all.

Our challenge theme this month is .... "AUTUMN" - use our autumn dies (Elements and/or Word Set 7) for a card celebrating fall.

For my card today I decided to pull out Karen's Photo Collage Pop-up die set to showcase the leaves and other elements included in the Autumn Elements die set.

I created my background panels using Gina K Designs Leafy Stencil sponging on Distress Oxide inks in fall/autumn colors.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action. 

I die cut all the leaves, pumpkin, apples and acorn from white cardstock and then colored each of them using Distress Oxides. 

I added the "Fall, Autumn & Colors" words from the Word Set 7 - Autumn Greetings die set to three of the photo frames. I also added the bulldog clips three of the frames too.

I added squares from the Crosshatch - Squares die set to the top left and bottom right hand corners to the card.

The bear, mice, tree trunk and stamp sentiment are from Neat & Tangled/Simon Says Stamps stamp set.

I kept the front fairly simple seeing the focus is on the inside of the card. I added the Happy Fall using the Happy from the Word Set 7 - Autumn Greetings and the Alphabet die set for the word "Fall" The sentiment was layered using circles from the Crosshatch - Circles die set.

I finished off the card adding a few leaves to the card.

Here is one last photo of my card when it is partially closed. It does fold pretty flat and will fit inside a standard envelope.
