Life's Good

The weather is starting to cool down here in southeastern Virginia and soon the leaves will begin to turn colors. Here is one of the cards that we made last week at my Hostess Club in honor of fall. I love the warm colors and the Art Philosophy cartridge made it so easy to do all the cuts. I used the Dreaming paper cut 1/4 inch smaller than my colonial white card base, the Oval 5 cut at 4 inches from Colonial White and then stamped with 2nd generation chocolate ink using the words from D1477 universal backgrounds. I distressed the edges with chocolate ink. Next I cut out 2 acorns from page 36 of the AP cartridge book at 1 inch in colonial white and 2 acorn caps from chocolate and embossed them using a cuttlebug folder.The acorns I stamped in desert sand using universal backgrounds and distressed the edges with desert sand to give some definition. The leaves were cut at 2 inches from page 34 of the AP book and stamped with the coordinating stamp that comes with the AP cartridge. They were inked first in Honey then before stamping I touched the edges on the Autumn Terracotta pad then stamped and edged with sponge dauber in chocolate. A chocolate grosgrain bow was added to tie the leaves and acorns together. The Ticket was from the You and Me stamp set D1495 and the ticket was cut from page 25 of the AP book at 1" stamped in chocolate and distressed with chocolate with a chocolate brad. Inside I have the little owl from the Pair a Phrase stamp set shown in an earlier post. 
I hope you like this, it was so easy to put together using the Art Philosophy cartridge.
As always to see a closer look at this card simply click on the card to enlarge.
