Come on in, and let’s take a closer look at our 3rd Autumn card!

This card pattern came from our Wishes how-to book.  It is called the “Gallery” pattern.  I LOVE using our How-To books!!  Using them takes away the extra time it takes to come up with the card design!

I wanted to have some “texture” added to this card - so to do that, I sanded the edges of my papers.  I LOVE that with ALL Close To My Heart paper is “white cored” paper.  That means that our paper has a white middle!!

You can use the paper just like it is (without exposing the white core) OR make that white shine through by sanding it, edge distressing it or a variety of other ways!

I then used the Sarita Textiles to tie a ribbon on this card.Fabric_sarita DSC_0002
I love the Goldrush colored fabric that comes in this pack!!

  To carry over the distressed look of the card, I frayed the edges of my Sarita fabric.

Next, I cut out this BEAUTIFUL leaf with the new Artbooking Cartridge., by using the B key.

I found that when I cut out the “front” of the leaf with cardstock and BACK it with our Brown/Tan Glitter paper, it adds an AMAZING effect to the card!!

Are you wondering where the word “Autumn” came from?  The word autumn was cut off one of our fabulous zip strips!!

Zip strips are 1/2” strip at the top of all of our designer paper packs!!  I love the little “extras” we receive when purchasing CTMH products!

The tab that the word autumn is on, comes form the Huntington My Stickease pack.

  There are so many beautiful stickers that can be used just as they are OR why not add a bit of ink or glitz glitter gel  to take them up a notch!  J

I believe that completes the details for our 3rd Autumn card! 

Make sure to come back on Wednesday, when I will be sharing details on the 4th and final card in this set!  J

Blessings to you!!
