Throwback Thursday Autumn Greetings Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  It’s September 1st, so I thought I’d share this Throwback Thursday Autumn Greetings Tutorial with you.  Maybe if we share a lot of crisp and cozy fall cards, the weather will catch on and start to usher in some cooler fall days.  Think it will work?  Let’s hope so!

My “search and rescue” mission in the Closet of Inspiration and Delight uncovered some delightful goodies!  First I discovered the remnants of Photoplay Paper’s Autumn Greetings Collection.  These warm and cozy colors, patterns and images were a great jumping off point for this card design.  Next, I located the Spellbinder’s Amazing Paper Grace Infinity Elegance Die and some copper foil paper.  Perfect, right?  Reneabouquets Fall Mix Mulberry Flowers and Acorn Bits provided drama and beauty.  I even found a sweet little fall apple sent to me from a dear friend named Becky.

Embellishing a card is always my favorite part of the job, so today’s tutorial focuses on adding all those wonderful little bits and bobs that help bring a card to life.

A Peek Inside

I had just the right amount of paper and images to finish up this sweet card!

The pocket gave me room to add this sweet and simple bookmark and a little tea wallet.

Can you believe it?  I actually found a packet of Apple Spice Chai Tea in my stash!  Sometimes all the parts of a project just seem to come together.  And that makes for a happy day in the studio.

    What a beautiful card Kathy! I love the warm, cozy colors and the pretty images. Your embellishments on the front are just lovely. The roses, ribbon, acorns, leaves, and buttons are so perfectly placed. I’ll bet there is some yummy spice tea in that cup! Can’t wait for more Autumn creations! Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
