Hey there CutCardStock.com fans! It’s Kristie here today to share with you a fall-themed card using the lovely fall coloured card stocks you can find at CutCardStock.
Today I used a few different card colours of stocks. Some oranges, browns and the lovely glitter paper that I am just dying over!
I started with using my Cricut and the basic Accent Essentials cartridge that came with the machine. I cut out a few shadow and details of different leaves in 2 different sizes and colours (see card stock links below)
As you can see, this paper cuts like a dream! Look at the glitter paper… it’s a smooth card stock so the Cricut and my cuttlebug cut through it with no problems, and it stays nice and glittery. And it’s gorgeous too!
After cutting a bunch of items I laid them out on my table to come up with a configuration I liked. I really have to move things around a lot in order to find something appealing to me. This is why I cut a few extra pieces just in case. It makes it much easier!
After I laid everything on my card base I took all the extra pieces from the die cuts and trimmed them down into little bits to add detail. It kind of rounds out the look, making it not so uniformed since I used the same images for my big pieces. I just couldn’t throw out any of the paper and it’s a good thing. A lot of it came in handy!
And here is the final project:
