Good Saturday morning. Although I do Christmas cards throughout the year, it still seems odd to be doing a card with an autumnal theme as if I am wishing the summer away. Even though it's been hotter than you know what, I still love summer and have no desire for it to move on. Ask me again later on in the month and I might have changed my mind though! I am submitting this card for the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge with a theme of Orchard and it also means I have one more of my Lawn Fawn sets out of the "new" box.
I stamped the tree trunk from the Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather stamp set with Dark Chocolate ink, the leaves with Potter's Clay, Peanut Brittle and Catkin inks and the apples with Wild Cherry. I then cut out with the matching dies from the Sweater Weather Lawn Cuts. I stamped the small leaves background image with Morocco ink onto a rectangle cut with a Lil Inker Designs stitched mat. All images were then attached with craft foam. The sentiment was stamped onto Tangy Orange cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. The image piece was attached to a patterned paper background.

I am doing a bit more crafting these days (beyond my design team work) as I've been physically limited to what I can do elsewhere. I suppose there is a bright side to everything if you look for it.
