It's a mixture of crisp, cool air, the sound of crunchy leaves and the scent of wood burning fireplaces.  

October through December are my favorite months of the year.  Although it's still in the mid 80's here in Florida, I've already found myself wearing jeans and closed-toed shoes more often.  ((Stop snickering!))  My other favorite thing about Autumn – the colors!   


 The Woodland Embossing Folder is perfect for just about any themed card but I'm loving it for fall and winter. I can add leaves, a small cardinal on the branches or snowflakes between the trees.

I used Soft Suede ink to softly dauber color onto the embossed branches to help them stand out.  Soft Suede and Cajun Craze ink pads added the fall colors to the leaves. 


 The 2" Circle Punch fits the greeting perfectly!  The small acorn is from "Into the Woods" elements (LOVE!) which adds the perfect amount of woodsy texture to my card.  I cut 21" of Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the card front and frayed the loose ends with the Paper Piercing Tool. 

Don't forget – October 15th is the LAST DAY to sign up for the October Studio Stamps in the Mail (SSITM). The Howl-O-Ween Treat stamp set goes well BEYOND Halloween with my exclusive designs that include baby, birthday and a Disney theme.  Choose from two options this month; just the stamp set and the 8 cards; 2 each of the 4 designs shown or the entire bundle which includes the stamp set, coordinating framelits and the 8 cards.  

Pictures, PDF step-by-step instructions and all the pre-cut, pre-embossed, punched pieces plus embellishments and envelopes are included.  Just add ink!
