Autumn Greenery

Happy Friday!  Although I know it's getting closer to Christmas and time to mail those Christmas cards, I wanted to do one more fall card.  I love autumn and Thanksgiving so I just couldn't help myself.  Our house is the one for the big family Thanksgiving celebration and in the past we have had close to thirty people!
This card goes together quickly and by changing up the background paper it could easily be a Christmas card.  It is A2 size.  I cut a piece of vanilla card stock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored it at 4 1/4.  It is a top fold card.
I cut two panels from the patterned paper.  The bottom piece is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, the strip for the middle is 5 1/2 x 2 3/4.  I adhered the strip to the panel and then glued it to the card base.
Next, I die cut the pine cone from a dark and lighter brown, the greenery from various greens (I feel the variety of color adds depth - there is a light, medium and dark green), the doily from vanilla and the berry branches from white.
I used Copic markers to color the berry branches.

I glued the doily circle slightly off center, arranged all the greenery except the main leaves and pine cone, and glued then in place.  I used a sponge dauber and VERY slightly added a little color to the center of the leaf for some dimension. For the pine cone and main leaf I used foam dots to raise them up.  My last step was to add some red sequins for sparkle.
