Non-Traditional Fall Colors

WOW…happy October!  I do think it might FINALLY be getting around to fall around it.  Maybe…but then again, it’s Ohio…maybe NOT!  It is staying dark so much longer in the morning and getting darker sooner at night.

But Fall IS here and this week the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Blog hop is celebrating Fall using non-traditional colors!  FUN!!!

This is such a pretty color combo…Peek-a-boo Peach, Night of Navy and Smoky Slate!  I think it still gives off a ‘fall’ feel even without the traditional red, orange and yellow.  This is a really easy card…especially when you have some of the pieces already sitting on top of your desk!

Here’s the details…

  • Peek-a-boo Peach – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, stamp greeting using Night of Navy
  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 4 1/2, cut along bottom with Swirly Snowflake thinlit edge, add to card front
  • Night of Navy, Smoky Slate – cut out detailed leaf
  • Peek-a-boo Peach – cut out solid leaf, all add three to card front
  • Tie Night of Navy Gingham ribbon into bow and add to card front to finish it off.

I just LOVE the edge you get from that Swirly Snowflake set…just so PRETTY!  And pretty is a GREAT way to describe the cool ideas in the new Create with Connie and Mary October Mini Edition!   We are opening on October 11th!

    I really like how you used the thinlit. I would not have ever thought to use it with leaves, but it’s perfect!

  2. Really pretty card. I love the simplicity.

  3. I love the snowflake border. I didn’t realize the die looked like this. Great alternative use!
