Autumn Woodland card - Get Funky Challenge

Autumn is definitely in the air and the theme over at Get Funky set by Enfys is Autumn Woodland.

I used papers from the Funky Wordbooks CD and the spotty green paper is the free download.

I cut a card base and then cut a scalloped edge my Fiskars border punch. I matted and layered papers and then sewed around them with my sewing machine before mounting them onto the card front.

I cut a strip of brown cardstock to make the trunk, inked the edges and stuck to the card base. I cut three leaves with my Fiskars ShapeCutter and Leaf Template. I inked the edges of the leaves and sewed a line through the centre with my sewing machine and then shaped the leaves by folding on the sewed line. I then stuck them to the trunk to make a tree shape.

I cut two different size circles with the circle cutter matted them together, cut them into quarters so that one will fit in the top right hand corner of the card. Sew around the edges. Add a greeting to the top right hand corner.

I stamped a bird onto two different papers and cut out and paper pieced them together. Stuck them to the bottom right of the card and made another for the inside of the card.

I decorated the inside with backing paper and white card adding sewing to the layers and stuck the second bird inside the card.

I am really pleased with how this card turned out as I just printed the papers I liked without a set idea of what I wanted to do, just winging it this time seems to have worked!
