Today I’m sharing an autumn-related project. I know it is spring, and we are looking forward to warmer weather and longer days… But it took me ages to finish this card, and I just want to share it, send it, and move to a new project. Frankly, I still struggle to find some “me” time to craft. Moreover, I love scene cards and coloring with colored pencils, but it is so time-consuming… I’m thinking about making tags instead of cards or using layering stamps and stencils to save some time, so we will see if that works best for me.
This card has been sitting on my desk since September. It was supposed to be a birthday card, but then the birthday date arrived, and I just had done the coloring, and then the time passed by, and suddenly easter was here, and I thought it was time to finish the card.
The book in the background is a Spanish edition of Anne of Green Gables. I loved the series as a teen, and I treasure these books.
I stamped these cute images from Hello Bluebird on kraft cardstock and colored everything using colored pencils. I love how these turned out! It was so fun to color them! I also used the Oak Tree Scene die on kraft cardstock and Distress Oxides to blend some ink on the different pieces. Afterward, I splattered some watercolor on the grass and the tree-top piece. I wanted to add more dimension to the tree top, so I used the pond builder die to die-cut a piece of vellum and inked it too. I also stamped the sentiment here and heat-embossed it on white.
I’m so happy with this card! I made it for a cardmaker I admire, so I hope she likes it too, even though she gets it in spring 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely day!
