Fruitful Birthday (by Asha)

Good morning, friends! Today I want to share with you a card project featuring the cherries from the new Mellow Fruitfulness A5 sheet. These colours are my current favourite combo of warm orange and yellow with a sprinkling of olive green and a pop of red. Leaves from last month's Autumn Poppy A4 sheet is making a guest appearance too, stamped in the background. I've fussy cut the leafy border from the new Autumn Edges A5 sheet and finished the project with a greeting  from the Birthday Words A5 set.

Here's a closer look at the card. The background is a blend of various Distress Inks and I used alcohol markers to colours the images. Check out the deliciously ripe gloss of the cherries!  And to make sure you don't miss it, I've fussy cut the image and mounted it on foam tape. Details on how I created this card will be posted on my blog.

So there you have it - a warm and mellow card... perfect for these cold November days. Don't forget to swing by the DT blog regularly for more card ideas by my team-mates. Happy crafting!

  3. I love the colours and the cherries look good enough to eat. The green leaf border and then the leaves in the background are just so pretty with those bright autumnal colours, and the alcohol marker colouring is beautiful. The baker's twine, sentiment and your edge stitching are the perfect embellishments. x

  4. Very nice, such a riot of colour - it makes me smile :)

  5. Using the Autumn Poppy leaves for the background is a super idea & I like the way your fussy cut green leaves echo the green of the leaves on those plums. The texture & dimensional interest of the plums catches the eye superbly & you almost feel you can pick them off the card. The colour of your stewing adds a real sense of cohesiveness by picking out the Rusty Hinge stamping of the leafy branch.
