Vicky; Thanks for the chance to win a free pass. I love Autumn for few reasons: first, I love to see the change on the leaves color, the weather is a lot cooler, and Autumn has one of my favorites Holidays…Thanksgiving!

Thank you to everyone who left their comments.  I am only sorry that I didn’t have one for each of you.

FREE Pass…

Before I get onto sharing today’s card with you, I just want to let you know that I have a FREE pass to the next round of Stampin’ Fun & Friends which begins 20 September through to 4 October.

As the theme for this round is Autumn Artistry, all you have to do is leave a comment saying why you like Autumn.
Now, I know here in OZ we are only a few days off Spring, but there is something I remember about an autumn when living in Canberra many years ago.  That is all those beatuiful leaves falling off the many trees in & around the parks & gardens onto the ground & myself & my girlfriend diving into them, playing & hiding.  I had never seen anything like it.  The memory is still very strong in my mind!
I will be using to draw the winner.  Closing date is 9 September.

On with the card –
With Father’s Day coming up here in OZ, we created a card last Friday which could be used for this occasion.  In fact, the card suits all occasions.  I found the instructions on the very talented Connie Babbert’s site.  I did change the measurememnts to suit my card & to make it smaller.
Base Card – More Mustard – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/4″ or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 – Pear Pizzazz – 5 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ or 14.5cm x 9cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 3/4″ x 3/4″ or 14.5cm x 2cm
Layer 3 – DSP – 5 7/8″ x 1″ or 15cm x 2.5cm

Inside Card…

After scoring my Base Card at 4 1/2″ or 11.5cm, I adhered the wider piece of DSP down the RHS of the card – as per inside photo.

I adhered the narrower piece of DSP down the LHS of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, stamped the image using Pear Pizzazz Ink at the top of the card & adhered to the Base Card using Snail Adhesive.  I wanted the tie to look like it was hanging off a hook.
After making my Tie using DSP, I attached it to the top of the card with Snail Adhesive.  I inked my sentiment in Basic Black Ink & stamped at an angle to the tie direct onto the Pear Pizzazz piece.
For my inside, I stamped the images around the edge of Whisper White Cardstock using Pear Pizzazz & adhered to the Base Card.
All in all, a really fast & very easy 5 minute card!
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Totally Tool, Short & Sweet, Cheers to You
Ink – Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black
Cardstock – Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard
DSP – In Colours
Accessories – Snail Adhesive
Until next time, Enjoy!
