Fall Watercolor Thank You Cards with Lawn Fawn

Hi everyone, Happy November, The month of Thanks! Kristina here kicking it off with some fall color themed thank you cards!


To get things started I watercolored a panel of watercolor paper cut to 4.25 x 5.5 with some fall colors from my Gansai Tambi watercolor set. Once dry, I ran the panel through my die cutting machine using several rectangle dies from a lawn fawn rectangle set, to create several frames.


Meanwhile, I also cut several layers of the Thanks sentiment I will use, glued them all on top of each other before heat embossing with some reddish/brown embossing powder. That left me with 3 frames plus my sentiment.


I was going for a tunnel frame, with each layer a different heigh, so I started with my center later and sentiment, to make sure everything else would be in line around it. I centered it on the front of an a2 sized card panel.


From there I popped up the other frames with different sizes of foam squares, to have each frame higher than the next. I rotate the frame each time just to mix up the colors. To finish them off I splattered on some gold watercolor paint from the same Gansai Tambi set. 


Thanks for stopping by today!
