Fall Colors

As I said in my last post, I have been making a set of cards for a special friend who sends many cards.  I used the same composition on all the cards but varied the sentiments and the colors so she will have a variety  to send.  For most of the cards, I used a flower, but for this one, I used a butterfly for the focal image.  This is done with fall colors, but I like it so much I think I might make one for spring in yellows.   This fits in an A2 envelope and will go through the mail with regular postage. I just realized that I need to do a couple of cards that will work for a male.  Off I go to my crafting nook.
Again I got this idea for layout from Pinterest.  I found the designer(not always easy) and got her permission to case.  Sherry Hester Here.

Thought I would post the yellow one on this post also since this is the one entered in challenges so more people might see it. I like the spring version too.

In case you are wondering what I do in the evening to keep awake while I sit with hubby as he watches television, I make flowers.  Lots and lots of flowers. I am going to use the poinsettia this afternoon  for another one of my gift set cards.  I have to be done by Saturday when we meet for breakfast.

  5. Gorgeous, yes, but stunning and splendiferous too. I love how you change the colors to match the seasons. These would make great gift box cards for a friend. It is no wonder that you sit and make flowers while watching TV with your hubby. I think we are masters at multitasking. I do the same thing. I also finally used the die that you sen to me this summer. I was hanging on to them as I did cherish them truly. Thanks again!
