Most Definitely Fall

ssthankwreath The leaves are changing all over the place here. We live near Swarthmore Collage and it has a beautiful arboretum on campus. The trees are just starting to turn now, but in a week or so parts of it will be just breathtaking.





wreathclose So here is a fall card I made - I was just playing around with my Copic markers. The wreath stamp is from the Large Autumn Wreath cling set from Serendipity Stamps. It is large - but so fun to color!

I used my Nestibility dies to cut the circle and scalloped circle. And I used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder. What's nice about Swiss dots it that you can line it up to repeat the pattern if the paper is wider than the folder.

The paper is Prism - dark papaya and dark suede brown.

I asked about favorite card stock in my Blog Candy post. It has been great to hear people's opinions! Many of you are SU! fans, and I have to agree. They do have excellent card stock. Many are Bazzill fans - you gotta love their color and texture choices.

But so far no one has mentioned Prism. I *think* it just might be my favorite (its so hard to choose!). The colors are wonderful and its stiff without being bulky. It has a smooth side and a pebbly textured side (like watercolor paper). It cuts and scores well - and works great in a Cuttlebug (love my bug!).

Well - still time for more opinions - post a card stock comment HERE for a chance at the blog candy.

I've never tried Prism. It sounds like the best of both worlds w/smooth & texture. Love your card.

Prism is my favorite and has been for a couple of years now. I love the colors and I love the weight of the paper. I get my paper from Cat's Craft Cupboard.
