Hey lovelies, Tracy here with you today sharing a card I created using the latest release.
I LOVE the new stand alone dies that Katia created for this release, especially the Shaker dies as they have so many elements to them. When I saw the Shaker Apple Die my instant thought was to create an Autumn card with it. This is my favourite time of year so I had to celebrate it with a card 🙂
I started off by using the smaller apple die and die cutting lots of card. I also used two elements from the Shaker Pumpkin Die – Leaf and stalk curl.
I wanted a stalk for the apples but the one that came with them works better with the bigger apple element so I used the Pumpkin Stalk curl instead.
The good thing with this is you can play around with placement and it also gives another use to this die.
I then used Pigment inks and added some colour to the apples and leaves, I went for reds and greens on the apples and a mix of Red, Green, Orange and brown on the leaves.
Whilst they was drying I torn a section of vellum and heat embossed a sentiment from the Autumn borders stamp set. I used some wood look paper I had in my stash as the backdrop and trimmed it down and started to arrange all pieces.
I adhered the Vellum strip in place and then started to adhered all the elements, propping a couple up with Foam tape.
Once that was done I trimmed all the excess from the edges and adhered it to a white card base, looking at it now I probably should have gone with a more autumnal coloured base.
I had a couple of spare leaves so I adhered them along the vellum strip.
I love how this turned out and LOVE these die sets.
