Fall Migration

Sometimes, nature provides the best inspiration when it comes to cardmaking.  I looked out my window this morning and realized that in a few weeks the geese will be migrating, the trees will have dropped their leaves and frost will be in the air.  With that visual in mind, I went to my craft table and came up with this ultra-simple card.

This card uses very minimal supplies.  The trees are from the Lovely As A Tree stamp set, the geese are from the High Tide stamp set and the sentiment is from the First Frost stamp set.  I used Soft Suede ink for al the stamping.  The sentiment panel uses the die from Storybook Scene Thinlets dies.  I cut a second one out of copper foil to give it some grounding.  Copper ribbon completes the front panel which was then mounted onto Merry Merlot cardstock.  I wanted to keep the front panel monochromatic and I love the depth the Merry Merlot base it gives it.

If you have any questions about the card, please leave me a comment below and I will be sure to answer it.  Should you need any of the supplies, just click on the image in the supply list below to order.  Thanks so much and I hope to see you during our Facebook live today at 3 pm ET!

Lovely Fern and My First YouTube video!

Good morning everyone!  I am super excited to announce my very first YouTube video (cue the confetti) – yay!!!  I plan on doing two a week, Tuesday nights at 8 pm EST and Saturday afternoons at 3 pm EST.  The Tuesday night videos will be a series on how to get started with card making.  We will begin with clean and simple cards that use minimal supplies and work our way up from there.  The Saturday afternoon videos will be anything goes and should appeal to anyone.  I hope you will join me on one or both of these days for some instruction and fun!

My first YouTube video features a clean and simple card – Lovely Fern.  Clean and simple are always nice to have in our stash and are quick and easy to make.  All the materials used are mentioned in the video and I will also post a list below with the appropriate stock numbers.  You can watch the video here or head on over to my YouTube channel – Cards by Wynnie.
