Tim Holtz Hello Autumn Funky Foliage and Woodgrain Card


Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing a fall card I made for my sweet friend Madelyn using the Tim Holtz Funky Foliage dies and the 3D Lumber Texture Fade.


As I shared in THIS post and THIS post, I sanded Tim Holtz Kraft Core Cardstock by Core'dinations, then cut and assembled a stash of these precious dies.  I sponged them a little here and there with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


For my wood grain background, I embossed the Lumber 3D folder with kraft cardstock, then dipped in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain and distressed the edges, particularly in the seams of the "wood."


I used the Friendship Script die for my sentiment, paired with some stamping using a $1 alphabet set.  The oval panel was cut from Tim's Stitched Ovals and dipped in Antique Linen Distress Oxide, then stamped with the (Lattice &) Flourish stamp.  What fun!  Wishing you a crafty good time this week...

I love this gorgeous fall card, Autumn! That background really looks like a piece of wood -- I think it's the most realistic effect I've seen to date with that embossing folder. Love the bright pops of color in your leaves and flowers, and what an adorable mushroom!!

Sigh... you have such a way of combining texture with color, Autumn! My eyes won't stop looking into every niche for texture and layers! What really grabbed me is the dimension with all those cleverly placed TINIEST OF CUTS, atop OTHER cuts, in order to create Wonder and Depth! For example, your stems, and even more the waffled brown flowers on the golden stems, or the 1/2 cut leaves on top of the other leaves, or the halo'd "hello". They are all beautiful. It reminds me of our autumn, but not with such a riot of color - lots of texture and dry flowers though. All loveliness, Autumn! hugs, de
