This month I created a beautiful autumn themed greeting card full of gorgeous realistic looking leaves.  I just LOVE the pretty Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink paper that I created for the leaves.  I also used some Distress Glaze on the leaves to give them just a hint of shine.  So much fun!

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with an Antique Bronze Steampunk Metal Gear Embellishment.  I also added a double layer of pretty ribbons across the center of the card under the sentiment.

America the Beautiful

Hi crafty friends and happy summer.  It is HOT, HOT, HOT where I am in the northeast USA!  No denying that it’s summer.  Tomorrow is the 4th of July holiday here in the US and nothing says 4th of July and summer better than a Patriotic color theme.  This note card was created with some pretty dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and gorgeous ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This is a very simple design where I let the Lattice Frame as the background do all the work along with the small and simple Sweet Christine Flowers.  I just cut the Lattice frame in red and adhered it to white cardstock and then added a red and blue layer beneath it.  I wrapped some pretty ribbons around that unit and then at the very bottom you will see a layer of wispy white mulberry paper.  I then topped that with the sentiment panel which was also layered with blue cardstock and white mulberry paper.

The flowers are very easy to assemble.  I cut the flowers in red, white and blue cardstock.  I inked the white pieces in red and blue with an old script background stamp.  I then shaped the petals with a needle tool and glued the layers offsetting the petals for each new layer.  I then added the leaf layer to the base before adhering them under the sentiment panel.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:

My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool with Delicate Stitched Ribbon in Red and Electric Blue from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Star Shaped Pearl Embellishment.
