Fall is in the air here in the Midwest and I couldn't be happier about it! Fall is my favorite season by far. I just love everything about it- the clothes are more comfy, the smells are more 'spicey', it's just my time of year. For today's card, I was definitely thinking fall!
The background paper I used here is from a DCWV 6x6 pad. I was in Joann's recently and had to pick up their Autumn and Halloween 6x6 pads, because they were just too cute. Over that is a piece of cardstock that I embossed with a Cuttlebug Argyle folder. Argyle reminds me of fall, because that's when I start to pull out the sweaters.
My caramel apple is from the Smiley Cards Cricut cartridge. I think it was supposed to be a candy apple, but caramel apples are more autumny to me so I cut it from these colors instead. I put glossy accents all over the caramel part to make it shine. Random tangent- when I was spreading the glossy accents, I had a total flashback to an old episode of Reading Rainbow when they were making a claymation movie about some pigs swimming in mud and showed how they use vegetable oil to make the mud shiny. I had to use some black enamel accents to fix his eyes, because the Cricut cut them kind of weird shapes. This way they match better.
For a final touch, I added a little cardboard button that I got on clearance a few weeks ago at Archivers. I think the pack was from Making Memories. There were a lot that were Halloween themed, but also a lot that were just pretty colors. I used a little Trendy Twine in the button.
