Wow - two posts in one day for me! Love it when I get to play for an hour in the morning and an hour at night!
Tonight I worked on a card for my son's teacher as my little one will be heading back to school in just under 3 weeks now. Thought I better start getting prepared as I hate trying to do everything at the last minute as there is never enough time once September arrives!
I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #49: HERE. This is the picture of the sketch by Jen Mitchell:
Here are some pictures of my card:
I used a lovely stamp set by WPlus9 called "Winter Wishes" to make my "sweater" circles.
"Autumn" and "Back to school" always makes me think of cozy wool sweaters and warm autumnal tones of browns, taupes, creams, and mustardy colors. Not to mention textiles in general so I embossed the background with a chevron impression plate also a product from WPlus9. The kraft panel is embossed with the "Old Parchment" embossing plate from Cheery Lynn Designs. You can see the texture this adds better in the next photo.
The "Autumn Wishes" sentiment is from a set concepted by Michele Wooderson for Papertrey Ink called "Friendship Jar Fall Fillers" and is one of my favorite fonts. The little acorn is from that same set and is colored with copic markers. The die cut is from a My Favorite Things die. I liked the half circle edge as it mirrored my "sweater" circles below.
Those little baby tags show my love for all things Autumn. They are from Stampin-Up's "Tiny Tags" set. I use up my scraps making baby tags with their matching tiny tag punch and stamping them with a variety of stamps. They sure are wonderful to add as embellishments to cards. I always have a stash of them on my desk.
Thanks for taking a look at my card! Happy Crafting!
