A cozy fall scene makes the perfect focal point on a greeting card. For today’s project, I was inspired by the little house tag in Carta Bella’s Fall Break ephemera pack and wanted that to be a part of my card. Since I was not doing any stamping, I wanted to add a stenciled layer and a leaf layer for the tag to rest on.
I love everything about fall – pumpkin carving and hot apple cider, the smell of cinnamon and apples, the approaching holidays, and of course fall foliage. The color palette of autumn is my favorite: oranges, golden yellow, pinks and reds. The only bad part is how quickly the leaves fall and need to be raked and collected. Here are some fall leaf crafts to help you and your kids create with and keep some of those beautiful leaves.
This first craft can be made with store bought silk leaves, if you happen to live in a place that doesn’t have many deciduous trees this is a great way to celebrate autumn leaves anyway!
