Hello Simple Stories friends! Anya here today to share another set of fall cards. Oh, how I enjoy creating this time of year, when the air is fresh and crisp, and home is a little cleaner and quieter. I used the Fall Farmhouse collection and accessories that come with it to make these cards.
Every single time I saw a 2x2” elements paper by Simple Stories, I wanted to create a grid card, but just now I finally did. I cut the squares a bit smaller, about 2.75” and used six pieces per card. To make sure they look straight I used a ruler while adhering them. Also, I stitched every other square with sewing machine and decorated them with a few die cut pieces that were added with pop dots. It's such an easy and fun way to make a card.
I really enjoyed die cut pieces in this line. It was literally playing with them when I was making next two cards. I spread all of the bits and pieces over the table and started moving things around until something looked and felt right. It was like finding those perfect puzzle pieces that look right together.
Do you ever cover the back panel of your cards with a piece of patterned paper? I used to leave them white, but after adding that final touch once – I never skipped this step again. Cards look so much more complete with back panel covered!
Often I like to finish my cards with splatters of white dots, but since I am a bit perfectionist when it comes to paper crafting, I prefer to control where my “splatters” land, therefore I use Nuvo Drops to add white dots exactly where I want them to.
