Hi there! Laurie here again to share a couple of cards featuring Autumn colors, but used in two different ways. One of my favorite things about Bella Blvd's paper collections are the bright, vibrant colors! I wanted to incorporate that vibrancy on my cards today, so I chose colors that are technically Fall colors but are still bright and fun especially when they are grouped together!
For my first card, I created a Fall thank you using the new Bright & Brave collection! While the Bright & Brave collection is not intended to be a seasonal collection, it does contain many lovely Fall colors! If you haven't tried the new 6 x 8 paper pads yet, you definitely should! Not only are all of the patterns from the full sized papers included, but the backs of the 6 x 8 papers are solid coordinating colors! I utilized those solid colors for my die cut leaves. The top layer is a lovely teal pattern, topped with two of the Bright & Brave Tabbies.
My next card features more traditional Fall colors...in a very non traditional way. One of my sons will be turning eleven in a couple of weeks and this is the birthday card that I made for him. All of his favorite colors happen to be Fall colors, which is perfect for his November birthday! I wanted to make the card bright and fun, so I used those colors in a way that best reflects his personality. I started with the black checkered paper for the background (Playlist from Addison collection). I layered on a couple of bright, contrasting patterned papers (Beast Mode from Alex and Fierce from Addison collections) and topped each one with a couple of Alex Tabbies. Using some Alex Paper Pieces and a die cut sentiment, I created the focal image.
