Happy Birthday-Card Concept


Hello, I have been eyeing the gorgeous Fall photo over at The Card Concept for the past week or so and I finally had some time yesterday afternoon to play along. I was drawn to the fireplace lines and the fall leaves of course.

Card Details: First, I thought about making bricks or using a stencil to mimic the fireplace but I took a different direction entirely. I decided to just make stripes across the background using strips of the same cream cardstock, almost like ship-lap. Next, I sponged some paper using various tones of Oxide inks to make my leaves. You all probably know by now that this old retired SU set is my all-time favorite when it comes to fall. The leaves are just amazing. I also used other various leaves that are also from SU and retired, I am sorry to say. The sentiment is from Avery Elle and is heat embossed in gold. I made my own embellishments with sparkly paper and a holly die from Spellbinders.

I hope you have a wonderful day and find some time to be creative! Take care, Nanc’
