Autumn Angela

The Secret Crafter Saturday challenge is:

Autumn Colours

I'd been asked to make a word book Birthday card so decided to use the beautiful papers from Now That's Funky. I printed the letters out using Wordart - just resized them to fit all 6 on one sheet of A4 and then cut round them and added to the pages. Really easy to do! I'd printed the outline of the letters in a dark orange which didn't show up too well against the zingy papers, so went round the outline with a fine black pen.

All the bits and bobs that I've added to the card are from my stash. I've added a different coloured panel to the back of the last letter so a message can be written on it.
These are really lovely papers, and I think you just may be seeing more of them over the next few weeks!! I printed onto 220gsm off white card as the normal stuff I have is a bit too thin and wobbly!
  • Backing papers: Now That's Funky cd from Funky Hand
  • Everything else: My stash
