Autumn Bookmark

It's anything but a card over at Whoopsi Daisy this week and this is my GDT creation.

It's very easy to make, and for anyone who likes the feel of physical books, its useful too!

The base is the corner of an envelope.

The image has then been coloured using autumn colours, lightly glittered on the wings and cut out. The envelope corner is decorated with designer paper (distressed using ranger antique linen) and the phrase has been added to a piece of card and stuck inside the envelope corner

October gave a party

Hi there

This card was inspired by the George Cooper poem that I've used on it. It seemed perfect for Autumn and the image from Whoopsi Daisy matched it so well. It also gave me the chance to use the skeleton leaves I've had since circa 2005 and never used!

The text reads:

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
~George Cooper

This image from Whoopsi Daisy is so cute. It's from sheet 434 and could be used for Birthdays, Christmas or any other occasions simply by changing the colour and background paper.

I decided on a really simple pink and white theme as was focusing on texture and decided to use various embossing folders and distress ink to create the layers and shades. Its then been finished with ribbon and pearls and a sentiment saying "Just for You"
