Happy Holidays Autumn Card


 Because of the Sizzix magnetic platform (purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts), I have been doing more die cutting crafts.  This card was a snap to make because the great Impression Obsession dies were held in place by the magnetic platform.  I cut the tree from a piece of  dark brown smooth card stock that was in a pack found in the BFC clearance section (check it out for some super bargains).  The words were die cut from foil card stock found in a DCWV paper pad.  I love that the IO  intricate dies cut the card stock sheets like they're butter.
I used Reeve's watercolor to bring Autumn colors to the watercolor paper. I also spritzed the watercolored paper with Mister Huey gold to add a touch of sparkle.  After finishing the card, I realized that the candy corn colors paired with the 'spooky' tree made this card look Halloweenish .....hahaha! Oh well, I still plan to send it out as a holiday family card. Autumn Greetings Everyone!

Love the touches of gold from the spritz to the foiled paper! I didn't think Halloween until you mentioned candy corn colors, hehehe.
