Fall is my favorite time of year so I decided to make a simple, but elegant Fall card for my first design team project. I love this orange pattern paper from the Crate Paper – Farmhouse collection so that was my starting point. After selecting some coordinating card stock and pattern paper, this card came together really quickly.

Design Tips

Corri - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • Inking the edges of all the layer really adds depth and gives your project a much more finished look
  • A few simple touches like a little bit of glitter and the tiny bow threaded through the button can take a simple card to the next level.

This card design could be used for any season! Change the focal point SVG file and color scheme and you can make a quick, but beautiful card for any occasion.
