Fall Greetings

I can't believe it's September already! The summer has gone so far...the year is going so fast!
Here's a greeting that can be used for most any event you have coming up this time of year, birthdays, get well, hello and more. Just change the greeting on the outside to fit your need.

Materials Needed:
Serene Silhouettes stamp set (SU #127324)
Tangerine Tango card stock 2 1/2 x 3 3/4"
Pumpkin Pie card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
Lost Lagoon card stock 4 x 5 1/4"
White card stock
Always Artichoke ink
Word Window punch
Modern Label punch
Sequin strip
Brown button
Tan floss
Stampin' Dimensionals
Glue dots

1. Stamp your tree from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set using Always Artichoke ink on white card stock. Cut loosely around the tree image. Set aside.
2. I usually place adhesive directly on to my ribbon but with these sequins, I found that it was easier to place the adhesive onto the Lost Lagoon card stock first. Then I placed the sequins on the adhesive and wrapped around to the back. 
3. Layer the 3 colors of card stock and adhere. I did the Pumpkin pie, then the Lost lagoon and finally the Tangerine Tango. 
4. Place Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the cut out tree. Adhere that to the center of the Tangerine Tango piece. 
5. Stamp your greeting on to white card stock and punch out with the Word Window punch. Punch out a Modern Label from some Tangerine Tango card stock. Layer the greeting on top of the label. Add dimensionals to the back and press down over the sequin strip.
6. Thread the floss through the holes in the button and tie. Add glue dots to the back of the button. Press on to the bottom right of the Lost Lagoon card stock. 
7. Finish out your card by adding it to a card base and stamp or write your greeting on the inside.

Have fun with the fall colors.
