Christmas with Autumn Days

Autumn Days is one of my all time favourite stamp sets. It has just the sort of natural images I love and I use it for absolutely everything - scrapbooking, masculine and feminine cards, birthdays, thank you cards, get wells, Christmas... yes, it might be called Autumn Days but Christmas is one of the things it does best!

I've stamped a similar design to the one on my gift voucher box I showed you last week, but using silver embossing this time...

... then mounted the panel onto a mat made with scalloped squares punched out of the luscious Cherry Cobbler card stock and stuck together. I added a berry sprig cut out with my paper snips and a few rhinestones for extra sparkle!

The sentiment from Petite Pairs has become a firm favourite of mine and has a coordinating stamp designed to go inside the card that says '... and a happy, joyful, bright new year!'

Come and see the back of the card too - I wrapped the Lucky Limeade card stock right round the back of the card and added this gorgeous little stamp from the Creatively Yours stamp set. I think it adds a really lovely personal touch!

I had a wonderful time with this set and made several cards with it - but I'll show you the others another time otherwise we'll be here all day!

Stamps: Autumn Days, Petite Pairs, Creatively Yours
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, versamark, markers
