Fall Birthday Colors


I was inspired by the color challenge at TGIF.


I’m also sharing with the “foliage” challenge at Seize the Birthday.


Crumb Cake is my favorite neutral color, and always a good choice for a masculine card. So, Crumb Cake would be my card base, layered with Cajun Craze, and Merry Merlot (Joyous Noel Designer Series paper) on top.

Before gluing the layers together, I used the Subtle Textured embossing folder on the Merry Merlot DSP to turn it magically into fabric. Then, I wrapped it with Gold Metallic Thread, which I taped to the back.


The word “Happy” is in the Merry Christmas die set, and I happily cut the word from Copper Foil. The die set didn’t, however, have the word “birthday.” After searching a bit, I ended up using “Happy Birthday” from the Lemon Zest stamp set. I used Copper Powder for heat embossing the two words on Merry Merlot cardstock, cut it with a Merry Christmas label die, and then gave it the Subtle Texture treatment.


The two sprigs, one in Cajun Craze, and one in Merry Merlot, are from the In the Woods die set.
