Hello, Creative Embellishments fans!

Sandi Clarkson here with you today sharing a couple of slimline cards for the Autumn season. One for Halloween and the other geared toward Thanksgiving.

With the ongoing popularity of more DL or slimline cards, Nicolle created a couple of frames that are geared towards that size. I used the Slim Frame and the Slim Frame 2 and used them a bit differently on each card. All my chipboard pieces were altered with the Distress Black Soot mist along with Shimmerz Hot Fudge mist. I added the Hot Fudge because it is a brown mist with gold shimmer. Made for a nice alter, I thought.
This first card was made a bit wider than the second. I wanted to see how this would look with more margin around the frame. The frame is layered over a couple of pieces of Graphic 45 Place in Time papers. After adding the frame, I added some additional focal notecards along with some embellishments. For the title piece I used the word Bountiful from the Autumn word Set.
A few splatters of mist and some dabbing of white gesso and this was complete.
Here is a close-up of the title piece. You can also see how intricate the frame is.

This is my second card where I went more narrow and really like how this turned out.
In fact, I actually backed the Slim Frame 2 with layers cut to the frame dimension and it worked perfectly here.
I think this frame might be my favorite of the two but really, I like them both so much!
And here’s a close-up shot of the Autumn title from the Autumn word Set.
I don’t normally work with orange and black but I figured it was time to break out of my comfort zone. Now I have a couple of cards handy for the upcoming holidays.
I hope that you’ve had a chance to see this month’s Challenge and hopefully, you will be able to participate. Busy time of year, I know!
Thanks so much for coming by today!
Sandi
