Magical Fall - Simon Says Stamp

 Good morning! As the days get shorter, the weather gets cooler, and the leaves start to give hints of color - I'm slowly beginning to transition fully into being excited about fall! Since I was feeling the fall vibes this week, I pulled out a fun die from Simon Says Stamp, some distress oxide inks, and some pre-printed sentiments to create this CAS fall card!

I started off by die cutting the gorgeous Birch Column die - it's been a while since I used this die, and I have no idea why it took me so long to pull it out again! So gorgeous - and perfectly sized for an A2 card.

I then used that to plan where to do my ink blending on my white cardbase. I masked off the sides (no sense in wasting ink, right?) and blended Fossilized Amber, Crackling Campfire, and Vintage Photo distress oxide inks over that portion.

I also added some spatters of gold with my Starry Colors palette, and allowed that to dry before adhering my die cut panel over the top of my cardbase.

Sentiments are pre-printed Reverse Magical Wishes Sentiment Strips - I trimmed them down and hand trimmed the edges into banners and mounted with foam adhesive on my card. I think fall is magical, so these sentiments felt PERFECT! Finished off with a few sparkly gold pearls to add a touch more sparkle, and this card was done!
