I love the colors of Autumn with leaves and chrysanthemums in reds, yellows, greens and oranges. Today I have created a fall floral card that would be a perfect hostess gift at Thanksgiving or for any occasion where you are feeling most thankful.

I love to make flowers and Creative Inspirations paints have amazing color and shimmer to bring the petals to life. For my mum, I started by cutting 15 of the Die D-Lites™ Blooms Two die from Spellbinders® with ivory paper. I painted the back side of each flower with Burgundy paint, then turned it over and painted the front with Burnt Clay.
With a dry embossing tool and foam mat, I shaped the petals into a cup and then touched the tips with Buttercup paint. I glued one flower on top of the other, and continued in that manner until I got the fullness I wanted for my larger mum. With leftover flowers, I created two smaller mums. As a background for my mum, I cut various leaves from the Fall Foliage die set out of olive green cardstock, and painted them with Evergreen. I added a touch of Buttercup and Burnt Clay to the edges to show the changing of the leaves.
My sentiment from Autumn Vintage Labels Three was stamped onto Frame Two, then layered on top of Decorative Wrought Iron.
