Autumn Greetings

I just love Fall. I love the cooler temperatures, the pretty leaves and the color palette that is popular for creating during this season. If it was appropriate I would make every card with earth tones. That is why the new releases at DRS Designs are some of my all-time favorites.


For my card today I have used the NEW Fall Leaf with Acorn (F471) image along with the Small Autumn Greeting (B422) sentiment. I took inspiration from the colored image when choosing the orange color of the cardstock and ribbon. I stamped the sentiment onto the background cardstock, then used an embossing folder to get the texture on that piece.


To finish off the card I punched a strip of cork paper, then pleated the silk ribbon across it. The image, and its mat were die cut, and adhered with dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
