It's a bit Autumnal out there!

Autumn and Spring are my favourite seasons, generally because they are colourful and the weather is not extreme. But then the winds came!

So in celebration of Autumn ( but not the wind!) i decided to make an autumnal themed card.

The stamp set used is Stampin' Up!'s 'Lovely as a tree'.

On a cream base card i added a layer of 'More Mustard' card stock.
Very Vanilla card stock was then stamped with the large 'En francais' stamp, using More Mustard ink.

The vertical border is made by punching a strip of  Cajun craze card stock with the scallop trim border punch. I then added Early Expresso 1/8th" taffeta ribbon.

The horizontal border is made using the scallop trim border punch. Textured Cajun craze card stock forms the top layer.A thinner strip of early expresso card again punched forms the layer behind.

The two images were inked up with both Cajun craze and More mustard ink and stamped onto Very vanilla card. They were then matted onto More Mustard card stock and applied to the card using dimensionals for a raised effect.

Right, i think i need to lift the mood a bit with some card making using some nice bright colours.

Hopefully this wind will disappear soon and we might get some sunshine back. Well I can hope!
