Fall Banner

The weekend is here!  It's been a busy week here and I've had some card orders to fill along with trying to work on a few other things!  My husband is in charge of a flying event this weekend so we will be spending a good chunk of tomorrow at the field...praying for decent weather!

Today's project is based on my Halloween one.  I had seen some other fall ones on Pinterest that were sort of similar.  I wanted to try my hand at one using the Orchard Harvest DSP and the Autumn Accents Die.  I used MDS2 to create letters...I actually printed ones out, traced them and then cut these ones out.  I used my home printer and I didn't like the colours I originally used (though the same as these colours they didn't turn out too well printed).  I added a lot of texture since I LOVE texture!  Threw in some buttons and some bling and voila! might be wondering why it's laying on my kitchen floor...the ribbon came undone and I seriously have had NO tine to come down to either re-glue it or stitch it.

The chipboard I used for the background, though not sold by SU came in a paper pack!!!  I just cut it 4X4 with my trimmer and then used a template to round the corner since it wouldn't fit in my corner rounder.

Cardstock: More Mustard, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Lucky Limeade, Raspberry Ripple
DSP: Orchard Harvest
Other: Autumn Accents Die, Woodgrain, Perfect Polka Dot, Square Lattice, Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Wood Buttons, Bronze Buttons, Basic Rhinestones, Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!



  1. This is fabulous. Love the incredible texture! It works so well hanging vertically rather than horizontally.

  2. Cute! I like that it's festive, colorful, and folds flat for easy storage. Great idea.
