Autumn Greenery

Happy Friday!  Although I know it's getting closer to Christmas and time to mail those Christmas cards, I wanted to do one more fall card.  I love autumn and Thanksgiving so I just couldn't help myself.
This card goes together quickly and by changing up the background paper it could easily be a Christmas card.  It is A2 size.  I cut a piece of vanilla card stock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored it at 4 1/4.  It is a top fold card.
I cut two panels from the patterned paper.  The bottom piece is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, the strip for the middle is 5 1/2 x 2 3/4.  I adhered the strip to the panel and then glued it to the card base.
Next, I die cut the pine cone from a dark and lighter brown, the greenery from various greens (I feel the variety of color adds depth - there is a light, medium and dark green), the doily from vanilla and the berry branches from white.
I used Copic markers to color the berry branches.

I glued the doily circle slightly off center, arranged all the greenery except the main leaves and pine cone, and glued then in place.  I used a sponge dauber and VERY slightly added a little color to the center of the leaf for some dimension. For the pine cone and main leaf I used foam dots to raise them up.  My last step was to add some red sequins for sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a creative weekend!
