Autumn Leaves - Trust in the Lord

This card was created using the diagonal strip pattern designed for the Viva La Verve Challenge for the 4th week of September. I rotated the pattern to make it a vertical card. I fell in love with the tag from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge that had a branch with leaves. I cut the tag at 3" which was just the right size for the sentiment. It's hard to see, but the branch is cut out of the bamboo tag and shows up black because or the black mat. I drew 3 hearts at the ends of the empty branches using a Chocolate marker, then covered them with Liquid Glass.

The same Cricut key that made the tag also makes a card with a branch cut-out. It looks great when it's cut at 6.5". The cut-out portion was backed with some of the leaf paper. Three tiny blossoms in bamboo and chocolate were added at the tips of the branches with Licorice Opaques for the centers. The scalloped oval for the title was cut at 1.75" and so was the black decorative frame. The sentiment is from Card Chatter- Sympathy. This card was really easy to make once I determined the size of the Cricut ovals.
