Happy Fall 2016!

Hello and welcome!!

Fall is here, yay!! I'm so excited because it's my favorite season. I love how the weather gets a little cooler, and how the trees change colors into reds, golden yellows and oranges. It's just beautiful!

So today I want to share a card to welcome the Autumn. I focused on those beautiful leaves and colors typical of the season. I hope you like it!

First, I made a card base from kraft cardstock. Die cut the bottom front using a scallop edge die. For the inside, I added a piece of patterned paper.

I heat embossed some gold splatters and the sentiment  to the front of the card.

For the leaves,  I sponged some distress inks on white cardstock, creating the typical fall colors. Die cut and adhered them to the card. As a final touch, I tie a hemp cord with a bow.

¡Hola! Hoy inicia el otoño y estoy muy feliz, porque es mi estación favorita del año.
Me encanta cómo el clima se torna un poco más fresco, y cómo las hojas de los árboles se empiezan a teñir de rojos, amarillos y anaranjados. ¡Es simplemente precioso!

Por eso, hoy les quiero compartir una tarjeta para darle la bienvenida al otoño. Me enfoqué en las hojas y esos hermosos tonos típicos de la época. ¡Espero les guste!


Here's my card...
