Here’s another idea for some quick and easy handmade Fall cards!
I’ve been on a roll lately using the new Rubbernecker Paper Pads to make cards that I am just loving! Today’s idea for quick and easy handmade Fall cards can be applied to so many different seasons, themes and occasions and I just had to share it with you all for those times when you need a truly fast card but still want it to be beautiful and send-worthy.
Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and sentiment layer.
Cut a 5.50″ x 4.25″ piece of the Autumn Leaves designer paper.
Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the designer paper to the card base.
Cut an orange layer to fit behind the sentiment layer.
Secure the sentiment layer and stamp in the MISTI and stamp using Nocturne ink.
Attach the sentiment layer to the orange layer using ATG adhesive.
Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the sentiment layer and attach it to the card base.
Leaves and Branches
Use white cardstock to cut a set of the maples leaves and dark brown cardstock to cut the tree branches.
Color the leaves using Color Fuse Pumpkin, Crimson, Grass and Mango inks and mini applicators.
Apply the Pumpkin, Crimson and Grass inks on approximately a third of the leaf.
Blend the three colors together by applying Mago ink over top of the whole leaf.
Check out my Coloring Fall Leaves post showing step by step pictures of how I apply color to the leaves. The post shows using Distress Inks but the Color Fuse inks that I used here are perfect for this technique as well.
Can you see how you can make some really quick and easy handmade Fall cards? Just choose a patterned paper add your sentiment layers and then decorate with some easy-to-make die cut details and you’re good to go!
