With Autumn settling into my mind, I’ve delved into making some Fall inspired cards. I may use some of these for Thanksgiving greetings. Today I created this leaf-shaped card using Cricut’s Design Studio to weld two leaves together. The leaf is originally from Doodlecharms but it’s also included on the Potpourri Basket cartridge, which is the one I have. I used two shadows at 6 inches (flipping one and then pivoting each leaf to intersect enough to hold the card together when folded). I am always looking for ways to weld things together because I love shape cards. The trick is getting enough points to intersect for durability.
And here is the final card ~
I used brown ink to distress the top leaf and the card base. I typed the “Happy Fall” sentiment using Word. I printed it on Paper Studio’s “Natural Botanical” paper trimmed to fit my printer. Then I hand cut it into a banner. I love the typewriter look of the font. It’s called “Batik Regular” in 22 point bold. I used some thin twine and a button to finish off the look. It’s secured with a glue dot.
For the inside, I used an inspirational quote by Albert Camus ~ font is Batik Regular in 14 point. More inking here too.
