Autumn is here........

...It has certainly turned autumnal here in Northern Ireland - I was inspired by the gorgeous colors of the changing leaves on the trees and made this card for Dad's birthday. The leaves are a clarity stamp -stamped in distress ink and embossed with distress embossing and clear embossing powders - loved how they turned out and got carried away making them lol

Male Birthday Card

I think we all find men's cards hard to make especially if the man in question doesn't have a particular hobby - this card just uses patterned paper and a wooden feather from Prima -I die cut an oval of this gorgeous paper and matted it on the matching scalloped oval -black and red card stock from Bazzil and vintage photo distress ink -all put onto a 6inch square kraft card
