Onto my project for today --- besides the wonderful fall weather, the thing I love most about fall is the changing trees. It's so much fun to watch them slowly change to red, orange, gold and brown throughout the fall months. I decided to use one of the Shaped Card Templates available at Paper Popsicles (what a bargain to pick some up on sale today! I think I will be completing my collection!) and create a tree inspired by the season!





Supplies:




bird die cut, Quickutz

inks

cardstock

cuttlebug & embossing folders (Moroccan & Swiss Dots

dimensionals

scissors


1. I started with a base and my template. Just traced the shape onto my cardstock and trimmed it out.


2. Using some leftover scraps, I cut the trunk and adhered it down. The leaves were embossed using the Moroccan embossing folder before being adhered. The bird was diecut and embossed as well.


3. I inked the edges first with Elegant Eggplant and then with Chocolate Chip.


4. Use dimensional to pop bird up off the tree.



I guess you want your other treat too? The treat on my blog is

SOME WICKED
