Autumnal Window Card - Monday 21st October

Good Morning Friends,

I hope you all had good weekends and managed some crafting - I only managed the colouring at the Craft Fair, but that was fine, relaxing and has given me some cards to make!

Autumn is a beautiful season and my favourite for crafting - such wonderful colours to play I have just had to make some  more autumn crafts to at least see out October and over the next two weeks, will be sharing them with you...

For this one, I used backing paper from a paper pack that was free with a magazine ( I mislaid the cover so have no idea of the designer!). I covered a 6x6 blank and inked the edges. The window was die cut using Kraft card and backed with another piece of paper from the same pad. The flowers are made from a punch, the leaves from dies and the pumpkin and button I brought back from the US.

The gold leaves were stamped with versamark and heat dried with gold embossing powder, then rubbed with Mica powder and heat set.

Sorry about the photo - I was packing up some cards I had made to take to the craft fair, when I realised that I hadn't photographed them, so I did it in rather a hurry! Glad I decided to do it there and then though, because I sold them!

Thanks for stopping by!
Love and Hugs,
Carole X

    So this week I have decide to visit all of my favourite blogs and take a peek at what everyone has been up to....and obviously yours was top of my list:) x
    Wow! Your class looked fab and the card that you created was amazingly beautiful, oh and the Halloween wreaths are just beautiful!
    Love! Love your card very autumnal and pretty:) x
