Vintage and a fall card

I am back from my holiday in Bali, it was a long break to be lazy and away from crafting, hoping I have returned with a refreshed mojo towards card making ;)

I made 2 cards, the first one up is a fall themed card, and it is also inspired by the colors which I was constantly seeing during my holiday!

 My Inspiration picture for this card - This was my spot at the beach in Bali.

For this card, I did a freehand cutting of the tree, off to the edge. Once the tree was cut and I was satisfied with it, I inked the fall colors onto my one layered white cad base.
And then I adhered the cutout tree on the inked base. Added few maple leaves, and stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations - trendy feathers.

I like how the card has turned out with plenty of white space as well as some vibrant colors too.

My card is based on Autumn colors.

I know this time this challenge will be flooded with cards, knowing that my card might be lost in the card flood from all the talented crafters all around, I am still giving it a go ;) CAS is my favorite after all.


The second card I made is with a vintage theme. 
I chose a brown card stock to work, and a white base. I had added a kraft panel, dry embossed the panel with diagonal stripes, and then smudged it with some white gelato, and then added some chevrons in black ink.
Added some fabric and gingham tape too. A burlap leaf, I also used some feathers from STAMPlorations - Trendy feathers, and then stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations too.
A vintage timepiece, and few stars to finish off the look.

 I have added two different patterns, the first one is an embossed diagonal stripe pattern, and the second one is chevrons inking on the diagonal stripes.

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!
