Autumn Congratulations

Available at Etsy and Arts Plus Gallery 

I love October! It's the month of our wedding anniversary, and oh what a beautiful day we had 22 years ago! The air was crisp, tree leaves had turned to gold, crimson and orange, and our hearts were so full. :-D

I know that the fall is a popular time for weddings, and that's what inspired me to create this card. With a cluster of leaves, a golden "congrats", and a blank interior, this is perfect for weddings AND anniversaries. :-)

I started with a white card base, and stamped it with French Script Background (Stampin' Up!). I did cover a lot of it, though, with some autumnal patterned papers, so just a bit of the script peeks out. Those leaves, wow, aren't they pretty? One of the best purchases I made: Lawn Fawn's Stitched Leaves die set. Love!

I used various colors of oranges and beige to create the leaf cluster, and topped them with a two-tone seam binding 'Colleen bow'. A sprinkling of matte and shiny gold sequins were tucked in, too.

The 'congrats' die is from Papertrey Ink, and I also used PTI's Luxe Gold cardstock. I used craft foam to die-cut the sentiment and glued it underneath for some added dimension.

Take care and thank so much for your visit today!  Enjoy this beautiful month!
