Design It Monday ~ {A Pocket Full of Autumn}

Hi there Precious Remembrance Shop fans and a happy fall to everyone! What could be more appropriate to celebrates this first day of autumn, than a card using the Fall Colors stamp set? I’ve showcased this set a couple of times using traditional autumn colors. Today’s card takes a different turn. The crisp autumn days and cool nights made me think of cozy warm sweaters. And with that thought I reached for some of my favorite argyle patterned paper!

I die cut a library pocket from my paper then stamped the leaves from the set onto more patterned paper. I adore the leaves in this set and the fact that you can trim them out easily to give them a die cut look. This pocket full of leaves was added to a white panel that was stamped with a sentiment and the double stitched border from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.

I’m thankful for so many people in my life. And of course my parents are right up there at the top of the list!  They eloped after dating just 4 short months and have been married for almost 57 years…I know right!! This card seemed appropriate for their autumn anniversary next month.

To personalize it, I added a sentiment from the Mom & Dad set onto a small canvas banner.  A few little splatters from the Falls Colors set were added before adhering it to the pocket.

I hope you enjoy your first day of fall, thanks for visiting with us today!
