It kind of evolved as the minutes ticked by.
It's kind of a backwards gate fold or some sort of shutter fold-----------I don't really know. Maybe you do? It all started with a little inspiration from a friend in an email this morning. She shared a Splitcoast Stampers card with me.
At first it looked like this. But I knew it wasn't finished yet. I happened to be on the phone with my mom, so I took this picture, sent it to her, and got her opinion. "Leaves," was her answer.
I took old CTMH markers in Autumn Terracotta, Goldrush, and Barn Red and drew colored leaves. Wow did it make a difference!
On the back side, I added scraps of paper and left the middle pretty blank for a personalized message.
I added "Love You" from the same stamp set as the sentiment on the front (a Hero Arts poly clear set #CL351). The leaves are from a mini stamp set from CTMH and the Fall tree is from CTMH's "Four Seasons" stamp set.
See how I added just a touch of extra color with more drawn leaves?
Also used on this card is CTMH cardstock in Cocoa, Cashmere, and Colonial white--along with current patterned paper from CTMH.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
