DCD 291 Fall Harvest

The theme this week at Die Cuttin’ Divas is Fall Harvest.  Anything fall related will qualify!  One of my favorimg_2553ite things about fall is how beautiful the leaves are.  This year, they seemed to get a late start and many trees just looked drab, but there are a couple trees in my neighborhood that are stunning.  These two trees wow me every year.  They are a couple blocks away but I have to pass them every day.  The beautiful leaves of autumn were the inspiration for my card.

I used the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge.  Last year I tried to use my cartridges for all the Die Cuttin’ Divas challenges, but eventually I forgot.  So I’m trying to get back to using them again.

p1130380 p1130386I needed something to balance out the falling leaves in the lower right-hand corner, so I added a heat-embossed sentiment.  The stamp is from Unity.  It’s from an Itty Bitty set called Delight in the Little Things.  The stamp set also includes a gorgeous old-fashioned baby carriage, which you can see here, but I only used the sentiment this time.  A scrap of green paper behind the leaf really makes it pop!

Come on over to Die Cuttin’ Divas to check out the beautiful projects made by my teammates, then enter a fall themed project of your own!

    Such a pretty card!

  2. Oh gosh, I bet those trees are magnificent up close, amazing how each one is primarily one color (red or yellow) I thought your card was a perfect tribute to your inspiration. The gold heat setting is the perfect touch on your card. Beautiful work.

    Beautiful trees and equally beautiful card! Love that cartridge, I’ll have to pull it out soon.

  4. Truly a beautiful CAS card. I just love how the leaf is the center of attention. I just finished a card yesterday with one last Fall theme so I’ll be joining the challenge in a few days. Thanks for the inspiration and the neighborhood trees are gorgeous. We have two near us that stand out above all other like yours. I think they are sugar maples. Stunning!
