Fall Card Class

I have the fall cards done for the class I am having next week. I needed to make sure I kept the promise I made in my post that is just below this one. I used the Autumn Meadows DSP from the mini catalog to create these cards. The nice thing about choosing a DSP it makes it much easier to choose your cardstock. They always have the colors listed with the DSP preview pictures in the catalogs. They didn't used to do this, but it is great that SU! does this now. It makes life easier.
I need to give some credit where it is due right now. I did not come up with the acorn made from punches, on the card above, on my own. There is another very talented lady that came up with this idea. You can get the directions on how to make one of these from her blog. She has a tutorial showing how she made it. Look at the other things she has made using SU! punches.

I try to keep my cards for the classes more simple. My customers are happier when I keep them that way and even tell me to. It makes it so the class runs smoother and faster.

I decided not to put a specific saying on any of these cards. This way they can be used for more than one occasion.
If you have an extra minute or so, I would love to hear what you think about the cards. Please leave a comment where it says "comment" at the bottom of this post. As always, thanks so much for taking the time to look. I also hope you have been inspired to create a card too! It isn't hard. I always say, "If you can color, you can stamp!"

Now go-n-stamp!!

I love this entire series of fall cards! Simple yet elegant. I agree how SU takes the guess work out of matching solids with their DP. That is one of the things that sold me on SU! That is a HUGE time saver :) TFS
