Back to Fall

Well after my Think Spring post earlier this week I thought maybe I should come back to reality and make a fall card. This was a perfect opportunity for me to use a Cutting Cafe file I had purchased a little while ago.

To make this card I used a scalloped circle SVG to create the base card. I printed the Cutting Cafe leaf pattern on an 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock and then used SCAL to cut a circle out of it. I wasn't particular about where the circle cut out on this one since it was going to be a background. After cutting the circle I colored a few of the leafs with Stampin Up markers to add some color. Add some ribbon, orange dots and a simple sentiment and you have an easy fall card.

I have a few other projects in the works for Halloween that use Cutting Cafe files. I'm editing a video as well. Become a follower and you won't miss out! Also, stop back tomorrow to see my second design team creation for Cooking with Cricut!
