CCT Autumn

This weeks theme at CCT is Autumn. I have used Autumn coloured papers from Cosmo Cricket on my card. I've had these papers for years and they are still among my favourites. I used the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop die and then cut the tree out of it as I didn't want the full background. The leaves are also from the die set. The images and sentiment are from the MFT Sweet Forest Friends set which I water coloured with Zig Clean Color pens. I stamped the plain card with a MFT Mini Hexagon stamp using Versamark to add a bit of texture to it. The sentiment is cut with a MFT Fishtail Flag die.

I used their new Shadow Box dies to create the card and Snow Day and Ready, Set, Snow stamps and dies for the images and sentiment. I coloured the images with Copics and added some glitter to the star. The chunky glitter is Lawn Fawn as is the raspberry cardstock. The green inks are Altenew. I will be using the shadow box dies a lot as they are so easy to use and make a great little box.
