SOUS: Anything Autumn

A new Die Cut challenge starts today over at Stuck On U Sketches! I hope you'll join us. Create any type of project you would like using our theme:

You can link up your project HERE

I decided to make a card using colors of the season and a warm, steaming cup of _______ (fill in the blank). 
Coffee? Hot Cocoa? Hot Tea?

 Not sure if you can tell from the photo, but the mug is three-dimensional.

  • Silhouette ID# 51080
    • I copy and pasted the leaf from the "tea bag". Then I cut off the stem and re-sized the leaf to fit the leaves down the side of the card. The leaves were cut out again in burgundy, yellow, and green and added to the side of the card. This was not part of the cut file.
  • The pattern paper for the mug handle and steam is also a cut not included in the cut file. I just measured how much I would need, cut it out, and adhered it to the inside cover

  • I added a sentiment section on the inside (not part of the cut file)
  • Also cut out a couple more extra leaves for the inside (not part of the cut file)
  • Tim Holtz Walnut Stain - inked edges

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to.
