Time for a Fall Card in a Box

Hello!  Hope you had a fine, fine fall weekend.  We had beautiful weather and warm temperatures, but I did notice lots of leaves turning colour, so I thought it was time for new design for a card-in-a-box.

This is a very cool card that folds flat to fit in a standard envelope, but when you take it out and open it, you get a little box full of surprises!

  • I used Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Always Artichoke as my fall themed colours.  There is something so satisfying about the warmth of autumn hues and I love working with them.  There is also the sparkle of Champagne Glimmer Paper to add to the mix plus some of the Colour Me Autumn DSP.
  • The main stamp set used was Fall Fest with it's coordinating Fun Fall Framelits, but I also stamped some images from For All Things and used the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die as well. So today's card is brought to you by the letter "F"!!
  • Some of the images were fussy cut, for example the sprigs of leaves from For All Things and the oak leaves from the same set.  It got a bit tricky in places especially on the leaf sprigs.
  • I added some Autumn Wooden Elements to the middle display for variety and it works out well.
