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!
