Thanks a Bunch- SU September challenge #5

Good morning everyone. I know I don't usually post this early but here in Virginia we're experiencing some rain storms and flooding so the roads are blocked or flooded out and I can't do my job in these conditions. So, here is the next card for the September challenge in a SU group I'm in and it was to create a fall themed card. I kept it clean and simple with just a little sponging on the edges, some marker coloring, and using a punch. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.



Additional supplies: clear blocks.

1. Create a card base from Cucumber Crush card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼”. I made mine a top- folding card.

2. Cut a slightly smaller piece of Delightful Dijon card stock as a mat, sponge the edges with Tip Top Taupe ink and adhere to the card base using Tear & Tape.

3. Cut a piece of Cucumber Crush to 2 ½” x 4 1/8” and then cut a slightly smaller Whisper White panel. Sponge the edges of each panel. Adhere the Cucumber Crush panel to the center of the card base. On the Whisper White panel, stamp the pile of leaves and color in with markers. Stamp the falling leaves above the pile and color with markers.

4. Stamp the tree trunk and the pile of leaves. Punch out the images and color the leaves with Stampin’ Write markers. Stamp the sentiment in the upper right corner using Cucumber Crush ink. Pop up the images using dimensionals and adhere to the left of the stamped pile of leaves. Adhere the panel to the front of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting.

Happy Mother's Day
