Crafty Cardmakers Indian Summer

Morning everyone!

Our challenge today over at Crafty Cardmakers is called Indian Summer and is hosted by Mynnette.


Mynnette would like to see a created scene using any nature themed stamps you have, digis welcome. Examples of nature themed stamps are leaves, grasses, wildflowers, etc.  Anything nature and autumn! Plus use only oranges, yellows, and reds for colors (black/brown and white/cream are allowed as well).  Perhaps a sentiment of gratitude or autumn would also be appropriate!





For my design a took inspiration directly from the photograph, I scored lines onto a 6x6" square card so it looked like wood panels and then added a die cut ring of kraft card with Pinflair glue gel. Next, I stamped the Woodware, large thanks you stamp in the center of the wreath base. Then, I took a section of die cuts and fussy cut stamped leaves and flowers and built my wreath up (just like I would make a real one from Christmas). To finish I added coordinating gems to the center of the flowers. 

Whilst the main element is quite fussy I really like how CAS the whole card has turned out- note to self maybe modify this design for Christmas cards!

Thanks for popping in and don't forget to take a look at the rest of the wonderful design team blogs.
