I was getting bored with my regular stamping and inking routine so I decided to try and do something different for this card. I knew I wanted to use yellow, red and orange. Those are my favorite fall colors. I was out walking and I saw all these beautiful leaves. I thought I could find some use for them. I just hope they don't dry up and get all nasty later on.

Do these gift card holders bring back any childhood memories for you? They do for me. The elves remind me of the elves from the cartoon Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. I love this paper. Can you tell I get in the Christmas mood early? I think it is ok because if I don't then I won't have any Christmas cards when it is Christmas season.

I started doing these types of cards after my in-laws got back from Japan. They got some really cool paper crafting books. I used to just glue the part I cut out onto a piece of cardstock. I tried to spruce this one up a bit more. I am happy with how it turned out but it did take a long time. I probably won't include these types of cards in a bulk order unless they are specifically asked for.

I was making a card for fall and I didn't have any ribbon that I liked. I decided to try to ink the ribbon I had and see what kind of effect it would have. I think it turned out nicely. I also stamped a leaf image on the ribbon as well.

For this card I used my cuddlebug embossing folder for the background. Then I used an ink pad on the embossed part. I added a stamped Happy Birthday sentiment and a matching ribbon. You can't see in the picture but I also stamped a flower inside the card for an extra embellishment. I think it is one of my favorite cards. I love cards with a lot of different layers and textures. I will probably do this same card in different colors.

I need to get out of this Christmas card mood. It is still October. I love fall and I love the fall colors and the holidays. Why would I want to skip all that for Christmas cards? Here is my last Christmas card for awhile, I promise. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

I hate the ugly cardboard that gift cards are stuck to when you get them. I decided to do something about it. Here are three gift card holders I made. They are for Christmas and I am helping the world become more beautiful one card at a time :)
