Falling Autumn Leaves Greeting Card

Falling Autumn Leaves Greeting Card

Hi, Crafty Friends! I hope your week is going great! Fall is coming soon and I love all of the changing leaves on the mountain by our house, so they inspired this card. They turn, red, yellow, and orange, and it is just stunning. I thought I would make this Thankful card with “falling” leaves. I hope you enjoy this project and feel inspired.


  • Sentiment Die
  • Assorted Leaf Dies
  • Distress Ink 
  • Gold Metallic Watercolor 
  • Die Cutting Machine
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Tape Runner
  • Black Glaze Pen
  • White Gel Pen
  • Black Ink

I die cut the leaves out of the Autumn Multi-Pack using red, orange, yellow and dark green. I cut the slimline panel that measures 8 ½ x 3 ½, out of Bright White cardstock.

I inked the slimline panel with Ground Espresso fading out towards the bottom of the card. I added Walnut Stain to the top of the card to darken it. I splattered the card with gold metallic watercolor paint. I then added dots with a black and white pen.

I adhered the leaves with a tape runner and foam tape, starting at the top and going down to give the illusion that they are falling. I also die cut the “thankful” sentiment out of Ebony and Mirror Gold cardstock and glued those together.

I glued down the “thankful” sentiment and stamped the other sentiment in black ink. I added that to a slimline card base.
