I typically say Fall, but occasionally Autumn gets thrown in instead (sounds prettier). Autumn is by far my favorite time of year.
I love seeing the leaves change color and the feel of a chill in the air. Who am I kidding? There’s hardly a chill and leaves barely change color – I live in Southern California, it’s summer til December.
Anyway, to mark the first day of Autumn…or Fall, I decided to make a greeting card.
Now I know the saying is – “It’s Fall Y’all,” but I wanted to change it up a bit. So, I did just that.
Check out my bullet journal post from earlier this week (see that post here) it matches this greeting card perfectly.
I knew I needed something circular to start building around the wreath. So I decided to use the inside circle of painters tape and traced a circle onto my cardstock.
Then I hand lettered “It’s Autumn Y’all” with the watercolors I mixed together. I used this brush.
After I was satisfied with the lettering, I took a few strips of leftover scrap paper and punched out a bunch of leaves with my maple leaf embossing punch from Momenta.
Check out those little leafy details.
Then, I applied clear glue onto my leaves and started layering the leaves all around the circle.
I thought the wreath looked great but it was definitely missing something. So, I found some leftover ribbon, created a simple shoelace bow, and hot glued it to the bottom of the wreath.
