Autumn Fairy in Fall Shades - Norma Burnell Digi

👉 The things you are passionate about are not random.  They are your calling.

Hi there!

For a Copic junkie like me, the autumn color palette is absolute heaven.  I find myself using color combinations I normally wouldn't use and I'm always surprised at how pretty they turn out. I guess I should pay more attention to Mother Nature.  She's the quintessential master painter of all things beautiful, after all. I made this card for my dear friend's November birthday.  

Here's my Panoply Pattern:

  1.   Download a beautiful image from this Etsy store. 
  2.   Color image with Copics and colored pencils   
  3.   Back image panel with slightly smaller rectangle of fun foam.
  4.   Cut out card base and layers on Cricut 
  5.   I resized my base in Cricut Design Space to A7 size
  6.   Edge layers with gold metallic pen
  7.   Add Stickles to edges of flower petals with small paint brush.
  8.   Punch flourish with paper punch out of gold metallic card stock
  9.   Change it up and make it your own.

*     Copic markers
*     Copic Xpress paper
*     Colored pencils
*     Krylon 18kt. Gold Leafing Pen
*     Stickles Stardust Glitter Glue
*     Flourish paper punch
*     Assorted paper flowers and leaves
*     Colored card stock for base and layers
*     Gold metallic card stock for flourish
*     Cricut Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge
*     Cricut Expression die cutting machine

A die cut easel  makes this bracket card easy to display.  I love this one from Elizabeth Crafts.
There are a lot of really good YouTube videos that explain how to use Cricut Design Space. It's well worth the effort to learn how to manipulate your die cuts.

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and create something fabulous.
