Autumn is on its way!

Today - I'm having a great day in the craft room.

I'm half way through a bigger project (you'll have to wait for that one) and I made this card for an Autumnal birthday.


Once again I used the 8" by 3" pre-folded card from my stash. I inked the edges of the card and the layers with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tea Dye.

The flowers are from the Flower Shoppe cartridge (scallop 1) and were cut at 2.5" and 2".


The leaves are from the Art Philosophy cart. Leaf 1 (page 62) cut at .75" and leaf 4 (page 56) was cut at 1.5" and 1".  I scored and inked the leaves to make them look a little more real.

The ribbon flower was made by me.  The tag was cut by hand and then rounded with a corner punch.


I am loving this pack of Recollection papers - called Timeless.


This card is being entered in the following challenges.

Paper Play Challenges - Week 36: Autumnal Tags (closes 12 Sept)

Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 233: Autumn Gold (closes 12 Sept)

    1. Thanks so much, I wasn't sure about the roses because I only wanted the one pop of colour in the leaves. But I think it turned out OK.
