Hello My Friend

Hi everyone! I want to shout HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL! You know autumn and fall go hand in hand. This is absolutely my favorite time of year... gives me a feeling of euphoria! I'm happy to share my 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project using the Natural Jute Ribbon and Coffee Jute String from the Jute Ribbon and String Pack. Another autumn/fall themed project! ;)

Gold embossed leaves with a wood leaf embellishment, a variety of gorgeous autumn/fall colors of cardstock and some Bo Bunny double-sided paper give this friendship card a feeling of real autumn/fall splendor!

I stamped the sentiments on the front and fashioned a simple bow from the jute ribbon, tying a short length of Coffee Jute String around the center for interest. The front of the card was finished off with some randomly placed gold sequins.

The inside was decorated with a strip of the yummy double-sided paper used on the front, and stamped leaves and sentiment from the same stamp set.

Happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory, Dark Chocolate, Cherry Red, Sweet Mango and Tomato Soup cardstock; Bo Bunny Autumn Song double-sided paper, scrap of yellow cardstock
  • Stamps: GKD Autumn Leaves stamp set
  • Ink: Memento Espresso Truffle, Versamark Dazzle
  • Dies: Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers, MFT Die-namics Stitched Square Stax
  • Accessories: 3 Girl JAM Natural Jute Ribbon and Coffee Jute String from the Jute and String Pack, Ranger extra fine detail gold embossing powder, GKD Autumn Leaves wood embellishment, Darice dark brown foam, gold sequins, Glossy Accents (to apply sequins)
