Happy Autumn Colors

Autumn can be such a happy, colorful time with much to be thankful for in life.

This card uses Karen Burniston’s Label Charm Pop-Up and her Autumn word set. Colorful double-sided paper makes this card pop.

I decided to make a cardbase mistake into a proper card. I had cut the main pivot Label Charm Pop-Up die through both front and back of an A6 cardbase (6 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches) and used the smallest fancy label die from the set with two small strips to connect the two pivot labels.

My favorite way to make the Label Charm Pop-Up is to figure out the mechanics with a thin cardbase and then cover it with decorative papers. The frames around the pivots are the waste from cutting the out. Because of catch-points the frames create, the sharp points of the frame are trimmed to allow the fancy label to pivot freely.

Double cut the sentiments from different colors and stagger the layers to create shadows as well as some dimension.

Final elements on the card are decorative strips from the paper collection.

Continuing with the autumn leaf theme, I stenciled colorful leaves onto the back of the envelope.
