For my card I went with a vintage look and feel. I love how the fall color combinations bond with vintage and this is why I distressed my patterned paper all around. I used lots of techniques to get that look on the paper, including distressing the edges, inking them and even cutting little notches.

Using burlap is another go to technique for my fall cards. It matches perfectly with the browns and oranges and adds some texture on your projects. I also fuzzy cut some pumpkins from the left over patterned paper to embellish my card even more.

I white embossed the sentiment and finished off my card by adding a few sequins, for some sparkle!

  74. Hello Vickie, I really enjoyed your video from this month’s SSS Card Kit and all your awesome videos! Please enter me in your giveaway!

  75. Hi Vicky,
    Beautiful Fall Card. The SSS kit is full of exciting and wonderful products. I love the pumpkin patterned paper too! and the distress look ! I love your tutorials, always inspiring and you are so talented. Thank You!!

  76. Lovely card as always Vicki. I love all the autumn colours.
    Maybe you could do an art journal with some of the autumn colours.

  77. I love that technique you used with the pumpkin paper. You make it look so easy. I also love the colors in this kit. So very beautiful!

  78. Fall leaves and fall colors are my favorites, and I love how you have highlighted the colors of fall in this gorgeous card. I am inspired to try distressing patterned paper by cutting out notches and rolling the paper up–it’s so very effective. So wise to have the other patterned paper underneath, I was wondering about just using patterned paper in perhaps a strip to cover both openings, but perhaps it would look unbalanced underneath and what you save wouldn’t be worth it. I want to purchase that TH distressing tool! Adding the fabric adds another great texture.

    You create beautiful cards, and Ii appreciate how easy you make it because you are a great teacher. Thank you for this opportunity to win this SSS card kit, I am a lover of SSS, especially their card kits. I am impressed with your artistry, Vicky.

    Best wishes,
