Birthday for Daughter's Boy Friend!

My daughter's boy friend had an October birthday...can you believe it...another October birthday!  I decided I would publish his card in November due to all the Halloween posts needing to be published before the holiday.  Not having a whole bunch of extra time, I decided to re-create a card I made from a class that introduced the new Stampin' Up Holiday catalog, which was given by my mentor, Liz Thayer, back in August.  (Thank you Liz for the inspiration).

Of course, knowing me, it would not be an exact case.  I had to add a few more colored layers, which also enlarged the card to 6-1/2" x 5". . . for some unknown reason, a size I like better than the standard A2--5-1/2" x 4-1/4" (don't ask me why . . . it's just more pleasing to my eye).  I added a twine tied button to the button embellishment and changed up the sentiment layout  position and its words.  I also corner chomped the original card base using my WRMK Scallop Corner Chomper.  The lovely leaf design with its glittery twinkling leaves was taught by Liz and I love how they look.

Then, I went to work on an inside creation to coordinate with the front design and a verse fitting for these lovely fall leaves.  I hope Jackie's boyfriend enjoys his little card I made just for him.

Paper:  SU cardstock - Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, Cajun Craze; SU dsp: Color Me Autumn.  SU Stamp:  For All Things.  Punches:  SU - Modern Label, Word Window.  (Inside: WRMK - Scallop Corner Chomper; EK Scallop Corner).  Other:  SU Dazzling Details - Gold Glitz.  SU - Autumn Wood Elements.  SU ribbon - 3/8" Stitched Satin/ Mossy Meadow.  SU - Button.  May Arts Hemp Twine.  Computer-made sentiment/ verse.
