Life is Better in Autumn — FMS451

It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  And this week, our sketch comes all the way from Australia courtesy of our favorite Artisan designer, Narelle Farrugia.  Take a look at what she has given us:

Now that it’s September, I feel like Fall should be in the air.  But alas, I live in Texas, so it will be awhile.  Sigh…  However, I can embrace all of Fall’s glory in my craft room and make Fall cards.  I grabbed the new Gilded Autumn suite and went to work.

I started this card with the pack of designer series paper.  The card base with the brown splatters — it’s a sheet of dsp.  The little punched leaves and acorns — they’re from a sheet of dsp.  The two pretty printed rectangles — yep, more dsp.

The sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set, Beautiful Autumn, and was embossed on a piece of Early Espresso card stock, which I cut out with a label from the Ornate Frames Dies.

I added a little ribbon and linen thread and the pretty punched shapes (There are coordinating punches for this suite.  The tiny leaf was cut by hand as it doesn’t have a punch).

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week.  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love this DSP and the vanilla ribbon is beautiful with it! Pretty card! I couldn’t take that Texas heat! 65 degrees here today – perfect!

  2. This card is just gorgeous Amy! I love that paper and that sentiment! So perfect for fall! It’s definitely cooling off here with some nights getting down to single digits! I feel like it’s a little too early for that!!!
