New Operation Write Home Fall Card

First card of several I hope to make within the next few days.  I want to get this batch of cards out sometime next week.  It's a Fall card with no sentiment.  Just pretty generic. Well, as usual I kind of messed up add ing these pictures.  But I'm sure you get the idea.  You just get to get the idea twice instead of once since I double loaded them onto my blog.  Am  I good or what.  

The card is a standard A2 card.  
1) Before I started to do anything with my materials, I have to play around with some sketch ideas.  Hence the first few pictures.  I finally decided what I wanted to do and distressed the front  and back of the card using Distress Inks:  Barn Door; Tea Dye; and Old Paper.  

2)  Then I cut the brown cardstock to fit the front of the card along with a piece of same for the back using 3 1/2" by 4"  measurements.

3.) Using a 2" scalloped circle punch I cut one from orange cardstock.  

4.)  Then I made my bows using a fork(yes a fork) with 3/16" orange and brown checked ribbon.  Using the fork is a great way to make perfect small bows for your cards.

5.) I added the ribbon over the orange scalloped punchout.  

6.)  I then added a bronze brad on each corner.

7.)  Using some preglittered fall colored leaves I attached them together with a bronze brad just below the bow.    (these leaves were 2", the ones used on the back of the card were 1")

8.)  I then attached the entire brown piece using my handy dandy ATG adhesive .

9.)  For the back I attached the brads first .

10.)  At the bottom I attached the small pre glittered leaves on each corner.

11.) It doesn't show it, but I going to mat the Operation Write Home label and attach it to the center of the top piece on the back of the card.

Now onto my next card.
