More cards for the season - oaks were my Dad's favorite tree in the autumn; he liked the duller colors. These oak dies are another new Botanicuts release from The Greetery. They're a nice size, not too big, so there's plenty of room for a sentiment, as you'll see in my 2nd card.
Isn't that ship-lap die amazing? It has woodgrain markings in it, as well as little "nail" cutouts. I layered my individual boards over a panel of kraft cardstock to get the nails to be more noticeable. I added a darker brown shelf to hold my pitcher. Here I just arranged the leaves in my pitcher with some bare branches, adding some acorns and an extra leaf as if they'd fallen out.
For this next card, I used the full branch.
supplies: Lipstick Red, Schoolhouse Red, Burnt Orange, kraft and cream cardstock, The Greetery Mighty Oak Botanicuts, Changing Seasons embossing folder, sentiment from (retired) Newton's Nook Fall-ing for You
This spray of oak leaves was fun and easy to put together - I used colored cardstocks to make it even easier! I cut a couple extra of the smallest leaves to have them fluttering down and to balance out the sentiment in the corner.
Thanks for stopping by - is it feeling like fall where you live?
