Autumn Fall Colors Card

With inspiration from Melanie of Courtney-Lane Designs I made a card similar to one of Melanie's. I wanted to put the link here but the blog post on Melanie's blog does not have  title for me to click on & capture the link.

Used Close To My Heart CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge.
The sizes for the items seemed odd and using real size did not help so when you look at size info below yes the blue layer is height 10" and other items are height 4". I added my own special touch by cutting the Tree multiple times so I could have red leaves, tan trunk and brown trunk/limbs.

Used Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves for sentiment tag. Stamped an Inkadinkado sentiment. Embossed the sentiment tag with Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl embossing folder. Added ribbon & twine.

Supplies List 

Cricut cartridge: CTMH Artbooking
   pg 66 Photo Mat 2 Shift 10"
   pg 72 Overlay Tree 4"
   pg 73 Title Autumn  4"
embossing: D'Vine Swirl embossing folder
ink: Memento Rhubarb Stalk
paper: cardstock - red, core'dinations cardstock - yellow, blue, brown, orange
ribbon: the Paper Studio Fall Harvest
stamp: Inkadinkado sentiment 'Fall COLORS'
Tim Holtz: die - Tattered Leaves
twine: Vintage red/brown
