Busy week last week. Brian became an Eagle Scout and we celebrated with a big party after his Court of Honor! We are so proud!
These cards are beautiful cards for fall! Let me tell you about them!

I think this one is my favorite! The base is Pumpkin Pie and on the flap is Close to Cocoa that has been stamped using the Canvas background stamp with Versamark ink. A strip of Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon was placed under the stamped image. (On a later version, I added a Jumbo Eyelets on either side of the image.) The stampset used is Thoroughly Thankful. The main image cut and colored with markers.



This one is another favorite! The base is Chocolate Chip, with layers of Ruby Red, Apricot Appeal, and Pumpkin Pie. I used gold embossing powder on the leaves from the stampset Lovely as a Tree. The corner punch was accented by punching Pumpkin Pie with the 1/4 inch punch and inserting gold brads.

This last card has many mini flowers punched using the Trio Flower punch. The base of the card is Old Olive layered with Really Rust. The Very Vanilla layer is what opens up to put your message! The Wreath colors consist of More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. I used the Scallop circle punch as a guide for the wreath. The flowers are layered; the top flowers have gold brads in the middle.
Thanks for looking!
