Hi friends,

So happy to be here with you and share my first project as a Fotobella design team member. Today I’m sharing two quick and simple cards using the gorgeous Simple Stories Autumn Splendor collection.

The Simple Stories Details

Fotobella has the Simple Stories Autumn Splendor Collector’s Essential kit in stock which contains eight (8) 12x12 sheets of patterned paper, four (4) 12x12 element sheets, a sticker sheet, Bits & pieces packet, Chipboard sheet, and washi tape. That’s quite a bit of goodies for you to play with! I also used the Simple Stories Autumn Splendor Layered Frames.

For my first card, “Autumnal”, I made a base out of white cardstock that measures 4.25 6. I know that is not a standard size, but it’s what I always use - this gives me the perfect width and length to work with. I then layered a 4x5.75 sheet of the “Fabulous Fall” paper, cutting so that I can have the gorgeous sunflowers on the right edge. Next, I fussy cut leaves from the “B” side of the Autumn Leaves paper and layered them with elements from the Bits & Pieces sheet - and my card was complete!

For my second card, “Fall Harvest”, I used the same size base as my first card, and cut the same first layer size from the “B” side of the Grateful Hearts paper. I added a second layer measuring 3.75 x 5.50 from the “A” side of the Grateful Hearts paper. I then added one of the Layered Frames and backed it with one of the cut-outs from the 3x4 Elements paper. Finally, I once again collaged several elements from the Autumn Splendor Bits & Pieces sheet to finish the card.

This was such a fun project! I love this time of year and making cards is a wonderful way to usher in the Fall season. I hope you give these a go! Fotobella has all you need to make several Harvest-themed cards of your own.

Thanks for visiting today.
