Fall weekend photos and a new card too!

What a whirl-wind weekend we have had - all in preparation for moving out of this house, and moving in to our new house! Who knew there was SO MUCH to do!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway - we did take a bit of a break from the craziness to get out and enjoy some of the fall colours (is it me or are the colours a bit flat this year?). So before I show you today's card, here are some of the moments and images captured. You've got to love fall in Ontario!

Walking Away:

Maple Leaf:

Back-lit tree:


And now for today's card - back to the winter/Christmas images! You know how I love cards that move or have interesting folds - and this one has both!

Girl on Skates:
Card dimensions – A2
Materials: CS – (Bazzill); Paper – Accademia (Fabrianno); Ink – Versamark (Tsukineko); Stamp – Girl on Skates SD059 M (Sunshine Designs); Punches - 1/4" hole punch, corner rounder (Fiskars), Ribbon – blue/green organza (Offray), detail silver embossing powder (Stamp Barn), Tombow markers, water brush, Sakura glitter pens, Liquid Applique, X-acto knife and cutting mat.

HERE is the link to SplitCoast for the complete tutorial on how to make a free-standing pop-up card – it's actually quite easy when you get in to it.
I added Liquid Applique to the "fur" trim on the girl's outerwear - and yes, JB, you do have Liquid Applique in your stash!!! Once the liquid applique dries completely - use your heat gun to puff it up, and it looks just like fur trim, or snow even. Just remember to make the slot in the card base wide enough to accommodate the extra thickness of the standing card piece if you use the Liquid Applique - it does add some depth to the thickness - so just be warned.

Enjoy!
Until next time, have a great day!
