Wheelbarrow Autumn Card

Created this Wheelbarrow Autumn Card using
mostly scraps.


Cricut cartridges:
Walk in My Garden 1 1/2" wheelbarrow
4 1/2" tree -- I cut the tree a couple weeks ago but do not recall the cartridge,
does anyone recognize the tree image & what Cricut cartridge it is on?

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Base golden yellow cardstock
cardstock - black, brown (couple different shades), golden yellow & maroon
scrap - patterned paper with leaf print design

foam adhesives

Martha Stewart Fall Leaves corner punch & edge punch
the corner punch broke after I punched a few leaves,
phoned 3 Michaels stores & it is no longer sold,
probably bought it a yr or 2 ago,
at bottom of Maple Leaf a metal piece broke off,
phoned Martha Stewart Customer Service, aka Wilton Brand,
guy told me that the punch is still available & if I mail the
broken one to them they will send me a replacement so that
is what I'm doing, yeah!

Tim Holtz: Distress Sander & Walnut Stain Distress ink
sanded & inked tree & wheelbarrow

the Paper Studio Fall Harvest ribbon

hand calligraphy of sentiment by John Donne:
No spring, nor summer
beauty hath such grace
As I have seen
in one autumnal face.


  1. Melissa, what a great fall card. I love the wheelbarrow full of leaves. That's the one thing I'm missing not being in Michigan right now. We're heading south in our RV for the winter. This will only be the second time in my whole life that I'm not seeing the leaves change color. I sure have a wonderful picture in my mind though gazing at your lovely card. Thanks for playing along with us at BBBTB2.

  2. Jeri: Thank you. Well if you come to Central TX the leaves change colors here & it gets cooler (just not yet since it is in the 90s now) & we do get snow also.

  3. Great card! I too miss out on the changes of the leaves since we are surrounded by Cactus! Love the leaf paper and the fun ribbon!
