Fall Shaped Card with Autumn Leaves Digi

Well... I'm both excited and sad at the same time lol! This time it has nothing to do with my marriage, but about two wonderful design teams :)

Today is a sad farewell to The Paper Shelter. I've had a blast with the amazing and talented design team! Thank you, Veronica and Pedro for your fabulous images... thank you, Marie and Shirley for your awesome leadership ♥ May each of you enjoy and embrace the plans God has for your future!!! Also congratulations to the NEW DT :)

...and here's the reason for my excitement - I get to show you my latest card lol!

I really like how this shaped card turned out. I began with the Fall Word Shaped Card from The Cutting Cafe. Regina's files are so much fun to work with :)



I know these are not traditional Fall colors... but I decided to use the pre-colored image Autumn Leaves from The Paper Shelter and picked out the color of the coat. In my Silhouette software, I chose 'gradient fill' to fill in the letters and did a print and cut. The image was printed on Brochure Paper and cut out with my Silhouette as well. The colors really POP on the Brochure Paper!

*A word of warning on the brochure paper... don't use a cutting mat that is still pretty tacky as it sticks extremely well and will rip in shreds :(



The challenge at The Paper Shelter this week is "Stitching." I took this literally and machine stitched around the letters. Boy do I love the look of stitching :)

The sentiment I used comes with the Fall Shaped Word Card (along with other sentiments). The beautiful butterfly die cut is from Simon Says (LOVE!!!).

******Stay tuned for the WINNER of my Dies and More Giveaway******

This is totally beautiful! You do some amazing things with word cards. I still have your Music word card burnished in my memory as it was so gorgeous. This one rivals that one! Just awesome!

Hi Lori. As usual, I love your card. You are amazing. I wish I knew how to print and cut with my Silhouette. I have tried to do it several times and I just don't get it! I really like the colors that you used. No, it is not traditional, but who says it has to be! Bless you!
