Gilded Autumn Gate Fold Card

OOH fall, oooh Mint Macaron, ooooh this card- they all make me happy! It is silly but really there is not anything I don't love about now, except how fast it seems to go :(. Fancy folds are not really my thing but this one is not too far out of my comfort zone and it has a little trick to make the technique work. It was a challenge card so cross your fingers for me but even if it doesn't net me 1st place it is a winner in my book! The steps below will walk you thru how to make the card and the design is super easy to repeat on other holidays... think balloons for a birthday, cake for an anniversary, flowers for sympathy, and animals for kids.

Double Embossed Gold Thinking of You Card

The stunning focus of this card is the newly released Brushed Metallic Cardstock from the August-Decemeber 2020 Mini Catalog. In fact it was the whole reason for the card. This month's challenge was to make cards featuring sample items from this catalog. What do you think? There is something about gold that always makes everything look more classy.

Whiskey Business Birthday Card

Last weekend we celebrated my father- in-law's and my mother's birthday which for the past few years we have been renting connected camping sites at our local KOA. Last year there was a significant dent in our bottle of bourbon whiskey... ok it was empty. I am happy to report the same occured this year, we had a great time! Because of these festivities I knew when I saw the Whiskey Business set that it would be THE birthday card set for the year
