Well, Labor Day officially marked the end of summer and the start of fall! And now is the time for some fall themed cards. Today’s design could be a birthday, a thinking of you, thank you or any special occasion card simply by changing the sentiment. The inspiration for this card was the Designer Series Paper from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. I loved that this particular design had a vintage look and matched back to merlot and wanted to try something with it.
Because Merry Merlot is named after a wine and the “vintage” look of the paper, the grapes from Slice of Happiness seemed the obvious choice for the stamp! I stamped them in Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow on Thick Whisper White and then die cut with one of the Stitched Nested Label Dies. It was easy to create a stitched banner by cutting off one end and using a straight stitched die to finish it off.
Then, it was a simple matter of adding a bow at the top with some Braided Linen and another banner for the sentiment. It is a very simple, easy card to do. The perfect fall card!
