The First Day of Autumn


That’s what my calendar says anyway.  I really love Fall.  I always thought New Years should be in fall.  Its my favorite time to take stock of where I am and set new goals.

And I have a bunch of them (LOL!).  One of them is to slow down and appreciate what I have more.  An important goal I think – unfortunately, it seems to conflict with my 49 other goals (hey – a girl can dream can’t she?).

About the card…

I usually stick to pretty standard card sizes, but I had these long envelopes in my stash – so… (the card is 4″x9″).

I stamped the image and saying from the  Acorns and Sweet Gum cling set in Memento Rich Cocoa and colored the main image with my Copic markers.  I also randomly stamped the main image with Versamark on the orange background piece.  I used the Diamond Elegance Border punch on the bottom of the orange piece and the coordinating corner punch on the matte for the main image.  I like this border for fall – it reminds me of baskets.

The brad I had was not quite the right orange, so I just dabbed my YR-14 Copic on it to darken it up.

The envelope is stamped with Memento Potters Clay.

Here are the Copic colors I used in case inquiring minds want to know… markersoaksweetgum

    Really pretty card, Cathrine! Makes me want to go leaf peeping on a long parkway drive! Thanks for letting me know about the winter sets! Can’t wait to see them! 🙂
