2.  Cut a piece of yellow card stock slightly smaller then the glitter die cut.  Then glue the yellow paper behind the die

Fall Color - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Friends!

Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday.  It gives us time to stop and reflect on how blessed we are.  And after giving our thanks we get to enjoy a yummy meal with family and friends.

I am almost finished with my Thanksgiving cards but I could not resist making one more card with some gorgeous Fall Leaves on it.

Design Steps:
 1.  Cut all pieces out of white card stock using the Fall Leaves dies
 2.  Sponge the leaves with TH Distressed inks
 3.  After sponged take the leaves and coat them with Versa Mark ink.  After you coat them with ink dip them into clear embossing powder
 4.  Heat set the leaves with your heat gun.  The colors will really pop!
 5.  Use an A2 white card base, cut a slightly smaller piece of black card stock.  Then use a piece of DP and cut it slightly smaller then the black.  Glue the black and DP to the front of the white card base
 6. Cut a dove tail black banner 5 x 2 3/4 inch and then a slightly smaller piece of burlap to layer over the black

7.  Begin to layer the leaves onto the banner working from the bottom to the top.  Cut out the brown twigs using the Cardinal & Bird die tuck them into the leaves as shown.  Add the sentiment and button then your card is complete

Let us all be extremely thankful for all that we have especially when we have time to create and have a little fun!

Enjoy Fall! - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

Happy Thursday to you! I hope you all are enjoying the beautiful fall weather and all of the colors that are starting to appear on the trees.  I am continuing to make fall cards not only for Halloween but for Thanksgiving as well.

My card today features the yummy cupcakes from the Autumn Sweets die and the lovely scripts are from the Fall Phrases die.

Design Steps

1.  Cut all of the pieces using the Autumn Sweets die out of white card stock

2.  Use your favorite markers to color all of the pieces


3.  Assemble the pieces with a fine tip glue.  I like to assemble them as soon as I get them colored so I don't misplace any of the small pieces.  Set the cupcakes aside
 4.  Use an A2 white card base.  Fold the front flap in half as shown above.  Cut 2 brown pieces 2 x 5 1/4 and glue to the front.  Then cut a brown piece 5 1/4 x 4 for the inside flap
 5.  Using designer paper cut 2 pieces slightly smaller then the front flap brown cards stock.  Cut one piece slightly smaller then the inside brown card stock
 6.  Using the Stitched Scalloped Oval cut out 2 ovals using lined DP
 7.  Using the Fall Phrases cut out the enjoy and fall out of brown card stock

8.  Glue one of the cup cakes to the oval and attach it to the front flap making sure you only put the glue on one side of the oval.  Also glue down the enjoy to the front flap
9.  On the inside of the card glue down the other cupcake to the lower right side of the card and then add the oval making sure it will be hidden right behind the front flap oval.  Add the word fall and your card is complete
