Grateful for Fall Colors
It was pretty humid and muggy over the weekend, so I'm wishing fall and its cooler temperatures to arrive quickly. This card's inspiration began with another great combo from the Color Coach: Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive. This bright and warm colors just feel like fall, and remind me of a favorite sweater from long ago.
This is another one stamp set card, featuring Day of Gratitude. I also used the Lace Ribbon punch for the accent piece. TIP: The center "flower" of each circle fits the 3/4" circle punch perfectly, so I punched a second strip withe Lace Ribbon out of Old Olive paper, then used my 3/4" circle punch to pop out the center flowers. Dotto is the perfect adhesive for putting these together, since there are so many empty spaces.
The finishing touch are some Basic Pearls for the center of each flower, and this card is ready to go.
