Autumn challenge!

Hey dearies,

What a beautiful weather we have here in the Capital in India! Its been raining cats and dog and except the broken down roads and crazy traffic am enjoying the weather so much! So many Blogs have these autumn challenge which was inspiring enough to use some pretty autumn colours like green, orange, yellow, red and foliage and leaves :). For the first time i made a coordinated envelop for 2 cards here. I so wish there was an easier and better way to make envelops :( This took me so much time measuring n all :( My finance requested for a card to give to his big boss who is leaving the organisation for good. so i kept the card clean and simple too. I used the cuttlebug garden swirls die cut for the sentiments and loved it! Any tips on how to paste them without getting messy with glue all over? The stamping is with Inkadinkado stamps and memento inks. Yep am still on with some resist technique hang over!

So here are the Autumn challenges am participating!

Beautiful cards. The texture really adds a lot. sometimes I put my glue on with a paint brush. That works pretty good to keep from getting everything messy. Thanks for joining us at I Did It Creations.

lovely colors...great effect...about the pasting part one option is to stick white double sided tape on the back of the cardstock (continuously in a line leaving no space in btwn) n then die cut n then just peel it of from the back and sick...another option that i generally do is take some fevicol dab my finger t lightly and then dab it randomly so it dsnt get that messy...
