We are in the middle of summer in New Zealand but Autumn (or Fall) is not far away with beautiful autumn foliage and the harvest of the summer with acorns, berries and pumpkins. Today I am sharing a card made with the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Fall Label Motifs Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. Once again Becca shows an impeccable eye for detail in the gorgeous leaves, berries, pumpkins and acorns. This card reminds me of walking through all the fallen leaves in autumn and watching my cat dancing trying the catch the leaves floating in the air. I smell the scent of fires burning and feel the cold chill in the air knowing that colder weather is coming.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
I have created a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base and added a layer of gold cardstock. I have added another layer 1/8″ smaller from white cardstock to the front. I have then added an older Amazing Paper Grace die – Callista Rectangle Shadow Box Die by Becca Feeken to create a pretty texture to the background of the motif. I have die cut the outer label in gold cardstock and two inner decorative motifs in gold and white cardstock. The white decorative motif has been added over the gold decorative motif and slightly offset to allow a glint of gold. I have added the decorative layer to a white background and then added this to the gold motif and added it to the front of the card.
For the leaves and pumpkin motif embellishments I have die cut them out of coloured cardstock and then coloured them with Distress Oxide inks. Because the finish on the leaves looked chalky I added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to them to make them look like they have been caught in autumn rains. I added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the berries to give more dimension.
I stamped the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Seasonal Motif Sentiments Clear Stamp Set from Seasonal Label Motifs Collection by Becca Feeken in black ink on some scrap paper and die cut it out with the sentiment strip die from the Amazing Paper Grace All Occasions Sentiments Etched Dies by Becca Feeken and adhered it to the right of the leaves as shown.
To finish I have added some gold gems.
The orange leaves have been coloured with Mowed Lawn and Spiced Marmalade inks.
The orange pumpkin has been coloured with Mowed Lawn at the base and the rest with Spiced Marmalade. The green at the top of the pumpkin was coloured with Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn at the top of the tendril.
The green leaves have been coloured with Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn.
