A fun hello card for CAS

An autumn themed card for Create a Smile by Laura Dovalo.

Hi there! I’m back with a fun autumn themed hello card. This one is for the new challenge at Create a Smile. Keep reading to find out more about it…

Last week I created this fun card featuring gnomes and autumn leaves for La Pareja Creativa. I colored some watercolor papers with different Infusions pigment powders and die cut the leaves. I had some left over scraps of watercolor paper, so I stamped the mini leaves from the fun Unfrogettable set by Create a Smile on it, to create another autumn card.

The idea behind the hello card

I was going through my stash of Create a Smile products and noticed that the pattern of the Waves stencil also reminded me of wind… so I grabbed a piece of grey cardstock and used Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment ink to partially ink the stencil. Then I used a Clarity brush to gently ink the rest of the panel.

The frog with the cute leaf umbrella was perfect for this wind idea, so I stamped it with black Memento ink on some Neenah 110 lb white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut the image, after backing the cardstock with some double-sided Stick-It adhesive.

I added some Glossy Accents to the frog’s eyes and rubber boots and also to the warm grey Alphabet stickers that I used for the sentiment, a fun hello that is blowing away…
