I love fall, cooler weather, and changing leaves.
It makes me want to make everything in my home warm and cozy.
Grab a nice bowl of soup and a comfy sweatshirt, and it’s the perfect setting for just staying in.
I also love the new Let’s Get Cozy Die Set from The Maker’s Movement.
A great cardmaking or scrapbooking die set for Fall or any time of the year.

Cozy Watercolor Leaves Cardmaking Tips…
- One of my favorite tips for die-cutting small pieces is to run the paper through the Xyron Creative Station* to add a layer of adhesive to the back before I die-cut. The paper pieces become stickers which make adhering them to cards very easy.
- Die-cut the leaves out of cream cardstock.
- Watercolor the leaves using ink from an ink pad and a waterbrush. I applied the ink directly onto a lamented piece of paper (or use a non-porous surface) and picked up the ink with the waterbrush.
Cozy Watercolor Leaves Cardmaking Tips Continued…
- The card measures 5″ x 6 ½”.
- Cut a moss green cardstock layer 4¾” x 6 ¼”.
- Using the large circle die from the die set, cut a hole in the center of the cardstock layer. Adhere the layer onto a cream cardstock base.
- Cut the words “let’s get cozy” out of champagne luster adhesive vinyl. Remove backing from the vinyl and apply it to the center of the circle.
- Build a layered wreath on the top and bottom of the circle. Add small dots using the small circles dies from the set to the top of the card.
