Fall card

Fall card

I was late in sending out Halloween cards so sent out some Fall cards this weekend instead.  I used a Silhouette Sketch Pen to draw the pumpkin border design I downloaded for free from this Clever Someday blog post.   The sentiment is from the Silhouette Design Store.  I sketched the sentiment on the card and then glued down the cut-out letters over the sketch.  This helped me glue the words in a straight line.  I added some color with green glitter glue and leaves punched from red, green and gold foil cardstock.


Embossing Foiled Cardstock

I’m sending these cards and quotes to two college students for encouragement.  When I looked on Pinterest for ideas using foiled card stock I saw some beautiful ideas using embossing.  The foiled sheets were easy to emboss with folders I already had for my Cuttlebug.  They look very shiny and pretty.  I included a small card with this nice quote below by A.A. Milne.

Materials used:  Cricut Cuttlebug “Birds and Swirls” embossing folder,  the Paper Studio Tiny Stars embossing folder, DCWV Foiled Cardstock stack and the quote by A.A. Milne by Kolette Hall in the Silhouette Design Store.  The “Believe in yourself” design was included with my Silhouette Cameo.milne quote
