Grateful Fall Tree Card

Honestly, I am not a huge fan of autumn. Here in Southern Ontario it usually means we transition to winter with about a week of rain and leaves changing. OK, maybe it’s not that bad but we get too little spring and autumn, a decently hot 3 month summer and way, way too much winter.

But having this lovely image by Flourishes l.c. to colour definitely lifts my spirits and help changes my attitude towards my second least favourite season! Isn’t it a fabulous image? I coloured the image with Copic markers and cut it out with a Spellbinders die. I cut a card back with the same die. The card back was scored about 1/4” from the top and adhered to the front just long that scored section. It’s a great way to make a shaped card! I added a border in red shimmer (reddish copper) Krylon metallic leafing pen and some leaf die cuts and sequins for some more colour. I’d have done a more elaborate card but I’m sick and barely managed to make this one. {{Sigh}}

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.

  1. Sorry to hear you are not well. Your card is lovely. We don't really have an Autumn where we live either, but I do like the gorgeous autumn colours you get in the southern states.
