I see Facebook posts from people who live up north that it is finally starting to cool down and some of the leaves are starting to fall. Well, here in Florida, I'm seeing some of the leaves fall off my trees, but it's still in the high 80's and low 90's temperature wise. It should start to get a little cooler now, I hope. I do love the cooler temperatures of fall, and only wish it would get here earlier. I love to open the windows and let the cool air through the house, and I love sleeping with the windows open at night.
To get myself in the mood for autumn I have started stamping a few autumn cards. Today I will share with you "fall is best of all".
I love the simplicity of this card. One stamp and a little masking and you have a gorgeous card. The leaf stamp and the saying is from The Angel Company, and are some of my favorite stamps. I loved their stamps and was sorry to see them go out of business.
Anyway, I stamped the leaf multiple times on a piece of 4 x 5-1/4 white cardstock, using a mask so they stayed connected. I colored them using Spectrum Noir markers, then cut them out, leaving the connected parts together. I could have stamped another to the left of the bottom leaf, but chose not to. Then I adhered them to the layering paper, which was then layered onto kraft cardstock. Another option is to pop the leaves up with pop dots.
This card would also look good using flowers as the border.
I hope you are enjoying the weather where you live.
