Theme Day Thursday - Fall!

Hi everyone!!! Today I am participating (and actually picked the theme!) in Theme Day Thursday over on My Cricut Craft Room! Fall is my favorite time of year. I just love the colors, and the change in weather. I also got married in the fall (my hubby and I will be celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary on October 21st!) so that I could incorporate all the beautiful fall colors and flowers into my wedding. :)

Today's card is a very cute fall card. I am not quite sure who I am going to send this to, but I am sure that I will find a lucky recipient!

Items Used:
  • 7 x 5 card base in craft paper color 
  • Coordinating patterned paper from stash 
  • Cheerful Seasons
  • Green, yellow, red and brown cardstock 
  • adhesive
  • action wobble 
  • acorn stickers from stash 
  • PBD sentiment stamps for front of card as well as inside (Simply Everything and Bountiful Blessings)
  • Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black
  • Tim Holtz distressing ink
  • corner rounder 
How to:
  • I started by cutting out the wheelbarrow layers at 3 inches from the Cheerful Seasons cartridge. 
  • Once all layers were cut out, I assembled together and set aside. 
  • I picked out background patterned paper and cut it down to: 4 6/8 x 6 6/8 for the mulit-colored paper and 7 x 2 for the orange paper. I cut another 7 x 2 piece of orange patterned paper for the inside of the card as well. 
  • I then used my corner rounder to round all the corners of the card base, as well as the corners of the patterned paper before attaching. This is also when I distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing ink.
  • I used ATG adhesive to attache the patterned paper and a Action Wobble to attach the wheelbarrow. 
  • I then stamped the sentiments on the front and inside of the card. 
  • At this point I thought my card was done, but as I was looking at it I realized that it needed something else, so back to my stash of embellishments I went and found the cute shiny acorn stickers! I added 2 of them and think they do a great job finishing off the card!


  1. O wow super cute samantha! I love everything abou your card! This is fantastic! I may need to scraplift this!

  2. Ugh! You're killin' me, Samantha;-) ! I am just DROOLING in envy over your CM Cheerful Seasons cart! I'm trying to rationalize getting this cart. Awesome job! I know those little leave can be tedious. TFS!
