Falling for plaid

I'm back to fall cards, at least for today. This fun card features a few plaid trees:

Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Fall Colors (Endless Creations)
Paper: Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight card stock; Perfectly Plaid Fall petite paper pack (Lawn Fawn)
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Build-a-Scene Trees dies, Leaves die, and Sun and Clouds dies (Taylored Expressions); linen thread; Season of Style washi tape; Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen; Mono Multi liquid glue; Dimensionals

Aren't they fun? I love the colors in this paper pack, and I think the plaid patterns are great for treetops. I cut six tree trunks from two different shades of brown card stock and adhered them across a Sahara Sand card base. The third tree from the left is adhered with Dimensionals; the others are glued down flat. Then I added the treetops, again attaching one with Dimensionals.

I wanted a subtle border along the bottom of the card, so I used a strip of Sahara Sand washi tape. I also added a die-cut sun in the upper right corner -- clear, sunny fall days are the best! -- and a linen thread bow on one of the trees.

Inside the card I stamped a sentiment that goes perfectly with the colorful trees. I also added a few tiny leaves die cut from scraps of the plaid paper.

I'm working on another card that uses the tree dies in an unexpected way, but I haven't found the right layout yet. Here's hoping I'll have that one finished soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
