Kitties Fall Picnic

Today I’m excited to share a card I made for this week’s challenge at Classy Cards ‘n Such: Fall Picnic. Of course, I used many crafty goodies from CCNS store to create my card, some lovely supplies I must add!

To make this card, first I die cut my card base with Our Daily Bread Designs’ Vintage Flourish Pattern, and then I die cut a window on it’s front with the coordinating frame from the same set. I cut an inner layer that matched the size of the card base from White Pearl Linen. I printed a piece of plaid patterned digital paper on White Pearl Linen also, and adhered it covering one third of the inner layer, to work as a picnic blanket. I aligned the inner layer with the card base, marked the window outline on it and die cut it with the coordinating frame die. The frame that resulted was attached to the inside of the card, after I aged it with Distress Ink in Old Paper, with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. The other remainding part of the inner layer was attached to the card front, from the inside.

Once the card base was entirely ready, I started working on all the elements I needed to complete my card. I stamped Wild Rose Studio’s Kitty Picnic on White Pearl Linen and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. I fuzzy cut it and adhered the images to the card front with Tombow Mono Multi Glue.

I then die cut lots of leaves from Precious Metals Craft Foil by Spellbinders with Impression Obsession’s Small Leaf Set. I applied some Graphite Inka Gold to the craft foil leaves, to make them look a bit organic. I added the leaves on the bottom of the card front around the images, arranging them to look like a bed of leaves. I adhered them with UHU all purpose adhesive (silicone gel glue).

I also used other die cuts as tree branches that I cut from olive green paper with Poppy Stamps’ Pine Garland. I cut around four or five of them and adhered them with Tombow Mono Multi Glue to the card front from the inside, so they’d appear to be coming out of the window.

Finally I heat embossed a sentiment, from Sweet ‘n Sassy’s Autumn Mum Greetings stamp set, with Gold detail embossing powder on a little banner that was die cut with the smallest die from A2 Matting Basics A. I distressed the die cut’s edges, and applied Distress ink in Old Paper to it, and next I cut it’s right end with a scissor to create the classic banner shape. I mounted it with foam tape on the left side of the card, and cut the remainder piece to fit the card’s width perfectly.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card! I invite you to join our challenge this week for a chance to win a prize from the store and the Classiest Card Award too.
