I have a colorful die cut fall leaves scene card to share with you today made using Rubbernecker Rectangle Combo, Tree Panel, Wheelbarrow, Mini Flower Stack, Grass, Tiny Flower Buds, Birds and Flower Stems. Since we don’t have a fall season with changing leaf colors here in Florida I love creating projects with fall themes. It brings back my memories of growing up in West Virginia.
Coloring the Tree Trunk, Branches and Leaves
-Cut two tree panels using white cardstock.
-Color the trunk and branches of one panel using a Walnut Copic marker.
-Color the leaves of both panels using mini applicators and Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Fired Brick and Shabby Shutters.
-Cut all the leaves off the second Tree Panel and set aside to use in the Wheelbarrow and on the grass area.
Coloring the Wheelbarrow, Birds, Flowers and Clouds
-Cut the wheelbarrow using Kraft cardstock, cut the birds using white cardstock, cut the flower stems using Eater Grass cardstock and cut the flowers using Marshmallow cardstock.
-Apply Antique Linen ink to the wheelbarrow using a mini applicator to create light base of color. Continue by adding Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink to create the weathered and rusty appearance. Color the wheel using a black Copic marker.
-Color the birds using mini applicators to apply Hickory Smoke and Wild Honey ink.
-Color the flower centers using a mini applicator and Wild Honey ink. Cut a set of tiny flowers using brown cardstock. Attach a tiny brown flower to the back of each flower to fill in the opening so the brown would show through.
-Create a cloud background on the white card base using Tumbled Glass ink, cloud stencil and an ink blending tool.
Assembling the Die Cut Fall Leaves Scene Card
-Cut the white rectangle frame and two green grass sections.
-Apply double stick tape to the back lower portion of the frame and attach one of the grass sections.
-Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame.
-Trim the frame off of the tree panel and attach it to the mounting tape on the back of the frame. The tree panel frame is a little too large to fit behind the frame.
-Attach the frame to the card base. Attach the second grass section to the front of the frame using double stick tape.
-Cut a piece of scrap cardstock and use glossy accents to attach the colorful leaves. Apply enough leaves to create the leaf pile for the wheelbarrow. Attach it to the back of the wheelbarrow using a piece of mounting tape.
-Attach the wheel to the wheelbarrow using a glue dot and then tuck the wheelbarrow in behind the first grass section and attach in place with a piece of mounting tape.
-Apply glossy accents to the top of each flower stem and attach the flowers. Tuck the flower stems in behind the grass section and around the wheelbarrow and attach using glossy accents.
-Finish the scene by attaching the birds using pieces of mounting tape and attach a few leaves on the grass using glossy accents.
I appreciate you coming by today. I had so much fun creating this card. I hope my step by step instructions will help you create your own die cut fall leaves scene card.
