Autumn Colours

Hi everyone, 

Jennifer here, hope you are all enjoying your holiday weekend and fitting in plenty of crafting time.  I have spent most of my weekend topping and tailing thirty-seven pounds of gooseberries !  can't wait to get back to some crafting lol !!   I know which I would rather be doing !




My card today was made using the Three Trees and the Vine Trellis Stencils,   I decided to make a set of four, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter - todays card is Autumn.

Base card is made from terracotta coloured card.  Wrap a piece of ribbon around some cream card and mat onto the terracotta card. Take the shiny silver card and lay the vine trellis stencil on it and spread the gunmetal sparkle medium over it.   When dry, glue to the cream  card, leaving some cream showing.

Take the white shiny card and colour using distress inks.   Lay the three trees stencil on top and spread the sparkle mediums over it.

When dry, add some red glitter glue to the skyline to look like red berries.   Punch out many leaf shapes, coat with stencilling glue and cover with stencilling flakes.  Glue these leaves to the two larger trees and cut out some smaller leaves for the small tree, and glue in place.

Trim a piece of terracotta card to fit the silver card, leaving a border of silver showing and fix to the silver card. Trim your tree image down slightly to fit the terracotta card, again leaving a tiny border showing.

Add a bow to the right-hand side of the card and glue some fallen leaves to the grass.  That's it Folks - finished !! 
                                                                                                                                                                                  
Until the next time,  
Hugs
