Today I'm playing along over at Retro Sketches. We are to use their sketch as inspiration. Well, inspiration hit! I had bought a Recollections Card Making Embellishments on clearance. Can't get any better than that and I had these cute fall stickers from Sticko. Then it was just a matter of making components matchy-matchy...the BEST part. :-)
I started with dark brown card stock, cutting it 5 x 10". I folded the card in half. Using the button like embellishment I picked out the colors for the stripes and added orange to match the stickers. There were so many cute stickers to use-an owl, squirrel playing in leaves, raccoon in a basket of leaves and many sayings. After I picked out the stickers I was going to use, I cut another lighter brown square 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. I cut the colored stripes 7/8 x 2 1/4". I rounded the corner on the yellow stripe (like the sketch) and the creme colored paper. I attached the stripes, then the round embellishment. Next I attached the red cording and topped it with a nice bow to the Creme paper. (Silly me, waited till the creme paper was complete and attached to the card and decided to distress it with red ink.) I attached the sticker where I wanted it. Using pop ups I attached the creme paper to the card. The Harvest Time" sticker was a bit more challenging since it couldn't lay flat on the papers. I cut very closely around the sticker so the backing was still on it. I used one layer of pop ups under the word "Harvest" and underneath the word "Time", I used 2 layers of pop ups. On the inside I attached the lighter brown cardstock for the sentiment to be written.
Thanks for looking, and Happy Fall!
