The Beauty of Fall


Art Glitter #85 crystal Glitter
Art Glitter #165 Autumn
Northwoods Rubber Stamps P9194 Milk Can, Wagon Wheel & Pumpkins

Assorted adhesives (foam dots, hot glue, liquid glass)
Assorted Scrapbook Paper
Die Cut shape Card
Die Cut Flowers

Begin by stamping the Northwoods Stamp onto your diecut card base.  This example uses a 3D shadow box card that was die cut using the silhouette cameo (the card cuts can be purchased through silhouette studio).  Many die cut companies have similar cuts so feel free to substitute with what you have.

Stamp the pumpkins onto a scrap of the blue cardstock and hand trip with scissors. 

Apply art glitter Crystal Glitter to the entire image using a clear adhesive.  If the glitter makes it difficult to see the original image, wait for the adhesive to dry then restamp the image ontop of the glitter. 


Cut spiral flowers using die cut machine or manual dies.  These were cut using the cricut, but similar images are available from other die cut companies.  You could even use premade store bought flowers if you don't have access to them from a die cut company.  After cutting the flowers, spray them lightly with spray adhesive then add a coat of Art Glitter Autumn Glitter.  Spiral the flowers and add adhesive to get to the finished product (hot glue works well for these dimensional flowers).

Begin assembling the card by placing the front and back together. Add adhesive and AG crystal glitter to the flowers in the milk pail. 

To add extra depth stamp the window and milk pail onto scraps of the plaid paper and hand cut them.  Then layer them onto your image and adhear with glue.  Add the glittered pumpkins using foam tape to pop them up from the background.  And finally add the flowers (some to the inside and some to the outside) to create more dimension.

Finally Add the phrase to the top.  You can use stamps or print this with a computer to get whatever message you would like. 

As you can see the final card has a 3D effect and will make a lovely display for the person you send it to! 

Thanks for stopping by to see my creations.
