“Happy Fall Y’all” Blog Hop!

Hello crafty friends ...

I was excited to be invited as a Guest Designer for this "Happy Fall Y'All Blog Hop" by Scrap 'n Stamp. Anytime I have an opportunity to share and promote a Canadian company I'm happy to do so, and I have been a customer at Scrap 'n Stamp for several months now. 

This Blog Hop is going to be fun - and there is a chance to win a prize!! More information on that in a bit. 

If you prefer to see the card in action and hear all the details, I have a walkthrough of my card on YouTube! That video can be found HERE.  


Box cards like this can sometimes take a long time to create so I wanted to do a simplified version for you. As I showed in the video, I was able to cut 24 stitched leaves with only two passes through my die cutting machine!  I did ink the edges of my leaves because I prefer that look - but you could easily leave off this step to save time.

Box cards can also be bulky, so I didn't use nearly the foam tape I normally would have for a 'regular' card and that offsets the extra layers of card stock from forming the box.


It's very hard to see in the photos, but I adhered some tiny clear star confetti around the card and they catch the light and are SO pretty! Why stars? The colours of this card reminded me of a beautiful twilight where you can sometimes see stars in the sky even before it gets totally dark.


I didn't add a sentiment to the panel on the back, as that is where I will write a note and sign our names. Still, I added a few of the die cut leaves and tucked in the stamped Wishbone for good measure.



I used Chameleon Color Tone markers to colour the racoon!

Now for the prize information ... 

We are randomly selecting a winner for a $50 gift certificate. The name will be chosen from comments left on the blogs (each blogger will select a name, then a winner will be chosen from those names).

Sweet card, I like how the stitching on the leaves doesn't get lost in the pattern of the paper, and that bit of inking on the edges really gives the leaves more dimension. Colour combo is really nice too!

Super cute! Love the colour combo too. I think inking the edges of the leaves really helps them to pop out too.

Such an adorable card - you have paid so much attention to every detail. I love that cute little raccoon holding the pie, and your colour choices are spectacular for a fall twilight. The sparkly stars are the perfect finishing touch. Spectacular!

I love box cards. I made my first one not that long ago. I can see it might become an addiction. Your card had lovely colors.
