Heather's Card - Golden Days of Autumn

Hello Bloggers

Heather steps sideways this month & shows us her card talents which are as awesome as her LO's.

‘GOLDEN days of Autumn ‘ – Card By Heather .

'I decided to create a card this month … Autumn is always a busy time in my garden, and one of my very favourite times of the year. In April the first golden leaves appear on the deciduous trees, and it’s always a wonderful pleasure for me to drag my feet through the fallen leaves that carpet parts of my garden.
I adore watching  my little black kitten Raven , frollicking  and playing with delight .
This card reminds me of nature with the divine ‘Ode to a Summer’s Day collection ‘.

The papers are all mix and match so this card is a great way to utilise all your left over ‘scraps’ .
I used various Spellbinder die cuts – fancy tags and nested pennants, added some die cut leaves and a beautiful lacy bloom..
All on a base of ‘Ode to a Summers Day collection’.
When completed, I adhered this to pale green bazzill, toning in with the papers
Inside  I added some stamping, masking  and Tim Holtz tissue tape .
The two die cuts for the leaves are –
Cottage cutz/ leafy foliage, Memory Box /Cottage leaf .

Thanks for popping by and do have a look at the website and look at all the beautiful papers and embellies … they are perfect for cards and tags … I give my cards with a gift and many of my friends say the card is a gift in itself …. That warms my heart .
Hugs to you all xoxo'

This is such a wonderful card & made with so much care - well done Heather - totally love it. It looks simple & elegant but I can see there are so many more elements than first glance sees.
 There are 2 sets of die cut leaves - 1 from cardstock highlighted with a black pen & another set from the background paper. There are 2 more die cut accents & then we get to the banner which is fabulous.  Love the inside of the card with its stencil elements, prose & TH tape.
