Welcome Autumn Card and Bookmark with Gold Embossing

Are you looking forward to a change of seasons where you live? If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, it's time for beautiful autumn. If in the Southern, it's time for spring. Here in Hawai'i, it's just hot any time of the year. However, it does get a touch cooler during winter and spring, so that's my favorite time of year here!

This is a card/bookmark set I made for friends who will be visiting our place of worship to encourage all of us. These traveling overseers come twice a year and this couple used to be in our congregation so it's extra special ♥ Old friends are always treasured!

I also made this card and bookmark for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #223 Autumn Color hostessed by Ally Cope. Why not take the time to play? You could win a new stamp set by Flourishes!

Recipe:

Stamp set: Flourishes, Spring Blossoms by Marcella Hawley {gloriously beautiful}

I started out embossing the main floral image in gold, then colored with warm Copic colors. I used a bit of white chalk on the tips of the flowers as highlight and Liquid Pearls Buttercup as a few dots in the flower centers. Memento inks are great to sponge around and I used Cantaloupe, Thatched Straw, Desert Sand and Toffee Crunch.

Spellbinders Marvelous Squares, Martha Stewart Scallop Edger Punch, yellow ribbons: 5/8th inch grossgrain and 1/4 inch satin, Martha Stewart Leaf Punch, Fiskar's tulip corner punch, Cropadile 3/16 punch and bronze eyelet, Topaz facet cut brad, glue dot, Aileen's Tacky Glue clear, adhesive pop dots, Mono-adhesive tape.

Cardstock and designer paper by GKD: Tomato Soup, Pure Luxury White, Sundance dp.

Welcome Autumn!






Thank you so much for stopping by and looking!
I appreciate you! Aloha ♥
