Hey Southern Ridge Trading Company fans, Katelyn here. For today's post, I'm excited to share with you this Happy Fall Card. To embellish my card, I featured one of our popular frames as well as our fall chipboard pieces. You'll want to read below as I share with you how I embellished the chipboard pieces for my card.
To start, take out two of the Wood Mini Maple Leaves from the package. Apply two coats of Candied Apple Distress Stain to one of the leaves. Apply two coats of Carved Pumpkin Distress Stain to the other leaf. Once the stain has dried on both leaves, rub Walnut Stain Distress Crayon along the edges of the leaves.
Take two Mini Wood Pumpkins out of the package. Apply two coats of Carved Pumpkin Distress Stain to the bottom portion of both pumpkins. Apply two coats of Pine Needles Distress Stain to the top portion of both pumpkins.
You'll need to take one Skeleton Leaf out of the package. Apply a coat of Emboss It Ink to the leaf. Sprinkle Burnt Copper Leaves Embossing Powder over top of the leaf. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool.
Take two Pumpkin Leaves out of the package. Apply a coat of Emboss It Ink to each pumpkin leaf. Sprinkle Forest Foliage Embossing Powder over each pumpkin leaf. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with your heat tool. You may need to reapply emboss it ink to the leaves and sprinkle Forest Foliage Embossing Powder over top. Tap off the excess powder and re-emboss with a heat tool.
The last piece of chipboard you need to embellish is the Tribal Feather Frame. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Ground Espresso Distress Ink over the entire surface of the frame.
Once all the patterned papers have been layered together and the oval has been foam squared to the middle of the 4 1/4" piece of patterned paper, adhere the frame over top of the patterned paper oval. Adhere the two pumpkin leaves in the bottom left hand side of the frame. Adhere the skeleton leaf over top of the pumpkin leaves. To finish off the corner, adhere the two pumpkins at the bottom of the skeleton leaf.
At the top of the frame, foam square the two maple leaves as desired.
To finish off the cardfront, use foam squares to adhere the fall saying. To finish off the card, cut a cardbase that measures 6" x 9", score at 4 1/2". Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
Here's the finished Happy Fall Card.
