Autumn Song Cards

Autumn Song has such a beautiful range! It is the perfect collection for creating that card you have been meaning to send to a friend or loved one that has done so much for you!

Give Thanks Card by Irene Tan

I've used Chocolate Dot cardstock as the base for this card and matched with it some beautiful orange tones papers from the Autumn Song collection. The various shapes and sizes of leaves from the Noteworthy package enhanced the flower perfectly.

Happy Thanksgiving Card by Irene Tan

I've used Sweet Pear Dot cardstock as the base for this card. This time, I've chosen different color tones from the Autumn Song collection. The yellow and greens creates a light and happy feel for this card. To give it a little homey effect, I've chosen the crochet flowers and lace. I've stamped a dragonfly in green to embellish this card.

Give Thanks Card by Keri Babbitt

A little fussy-cutting of the leaves paper gives this card some subtle dimension and a delicate quality.
I love how the polka dots are highlighted on the leaves & the border of this card.

Designer Tip:  Using foam adhesive for the card sentiment, & slightly curling the edges of the fussy-cut leaves, are two ways to add some dimension & interest to this simple card.

There's Always Something Card by Keri Babbitt

I love the thought on the sticker, that "there's always something to be thankful for" so I began with that.  The rich purple is a great addition to the color palette of this collection, and I wanted to highlight it here.  I combined the purple with the rich autumnal greens/oranges, for an elegant look.

Designer Tip:  Don't be afraid to let elements of the card hang over the edges slightly.  This is a fun, fresh twist on the classic card, & complements the handmade look.

Thankful for You card by Rhonda Van Ginkel

Orange Flourish Double Dot card stock is the base for my card.  I've used stickers for my sentiment and some Noteworthy elements as well.  I just love how you can use them in so many ways for your projects!

To anchor my sentiment, I added one of the large brads and tucked a few Noteworthy leaves behind.  The colors in this collection are simply amazing, don't you think?

Crisp Air and Crunchy Leaves card by Rhonda Van Ginkel

I loved the oval sentiment and wanted to build a card around it.  I decided to create a 5x5 inch square card. I used the Chocolate Flourish Double Dot cardstock for my base.  The bright magenta of the Melody paper really pops against the chocolate.

The leaves here are from Noteworthy and the sweet little flower is from the Dimensional Stickers.  I tied a bit of hemp twine to mix a bit of earthy with elegant.  Autumn Song is such a versatile collection and so much fun to use!!!
