Fall Leaves – White Space Card

Hi Everyone!

I guess my card making is going to be a weekly thing for now ;).  I’m a part of the Live Love Cards Community – so for the October Challenge, which is “White Space”, I decided to make a simple fall card using some die cuts.

Fall Leaves

Darlene Devries who is the owner of LiveLoveCards.com is such a fabulous cardmaker – she’s humble and extremely friendly and I love her videos. There is a small fee to join the community but I assure you, it’s completely worth it! I have trouble with white space too – but I think it’s easier than some of us think to call it done and walk away. I love how this card turned out and I hope you like it!

I used distress ink to pick up color for these leaves and also used distress ink to blend a green background for the leaves.

Fall Leaves 2

The sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up! Set called For All Things which is still available.  I’m glad it was carried over from last year’s holiday catalog.

I finished off the card by adding some shimmer to the leaves using some Wink of Stella (I used gold at first but ended up like clear better).

Here’s my video if you want to watch the process. This was a really quick and easy card to do!

  1. Hello Caly: What a gorgeous Autumn card!!! Love those stitched leaves and the incredible colors you gave them. I love also the stitched rectangle dies, I’ve been putting it off buying them but I think it’s time I take the plunge.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs,
    Maria.

  2. Hi Caly. I have these dies on order, but the larger ones. I’m excited to use the distress inks, I’ve got the itch to some water coloring! Very pretty. 🙂
