autumn thank you

Hello friends. (and family – I know you’re there, and I appreciate you!)

I have a very autumnal card for you today. We have a dear friend leaving Japan soon, and I was asked to make a card that was bigger than my usual so that it could be signed by multiple people. Here’s what I made.

The card ended up being 5 1/2 inches square. I decided to go with an autumn palate. I blended Distress Inks ranging from burgundy through to yellow. The colors I chose were: Aged Mahogany, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.

Once by background was dry, I stamped and heat embossed the beautiful bouquet from Concord and 9th Hello Lovely stamp set. I used Versamark ink and WOW Platinum embossing powder. I was tossing up between white and gold embossing powder, and this Platinum colour gave me the best of both worlds. The sentiment was embossed with the same powder and it comes from Altenew’s Sakura Blossom stamp set.

I even made an envelope for the card, as this is not a size I have available to me here in Japan. I love the vibrant colors of this card, and I hope that they convey our warm wishes as the recipient heads away for an extended time.

If you’ve enjoyed this card and would like to see more, you can visit my Instagram feed, where I post most of my cards, or my new Youtube channel, where I’ve started posting videos of some of my card making adventures.

Until next time, stay safe.

Blessings,

Donna
