ID: MC Sept/16 - Relax & Smile - Autumn Is A Second card
size: 5"w x 7"h 

Created: September 4, 2016

Suzanne has started a new blog and it's all about digital cutting... I'm using a couple of her newest files and a few others available on the Silhouette onLine store (click on images to purchase)

This is what the images look like in the file 


I'm using a quote stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design  

("Autumn is A Second Spring..."); 


I opened the Silhouette files in Sure Cuts A Lot software. I left the "Relax" & "Smile" the size they were, adding a shadow layer at 1.0 larger and a 2nd shadow layer at 2.0 from white cardstock. While still on the mat, painted with acrylic daubers - the top word in "Spiced Marmalade", the 1st shadow layer in "Peeled Paint" and left the 2nd shadow layer white. Removed from mat and inked the top word with Versafine and embossed with Emerald Creek "Thanksgiving" embossing powder. Adhered the 3 layers together.

Cut the ampersand from white cardstock, painted with "Mustard Seed", inked with versamark and embossed with yellow embossing powder. Painted the shadow layer with the peeled paint. Adhered the 2 layers together.

Cut the leaves from white cardstock, sponged with Distress "Mustard Seed" all over than here and there with various other colors ("Fossilized Amber", "Carved Pumpkin", "Lucky Clover", "Forest Moss", "Worn Lipstick"). Scored vein lines on the backside of each leaf, then hit the high points direct to paper with the forest moss.

Side folded my mango toned cardstock.

Cut a piece of translucent vellum and embossed using Crafts Too "Feathers" embossing folder. Trimmed down to 1/8" smaller than my card front. Adhered with ATG tape.

Adhered all my electronic cut pieces, adding a piece of gold/gold Sari ribbon diagonally under the "smile" word.

As a final touch added an amber pearl for the dot on the smile...

On the inside: Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Colored the leaf with a yellow colored pencil.

Adhered some leftover leaves
