Pilin' on Autumn

This week at the Pile It On Challenge our theme is Autumn (theme or colors). I used this sweet Bird image from The Doodle Garden and Autumn-themed colors for this gate-fold card:

The Doodle Garden image is colored with Copics. I used the blender texture technique for the background & fence, and added some red flocking to the birdie. I added detail with gel markers. I had lots of fun with this leaf Sweetcuts die. I cut the shapes out of strips of paper and then glued the cut-outs back on to reveal different colors.

The sentiment on the inside is by TLC Creations. The solid papers are by Recollections and the patterned papers are by Graphic 45.

  3. Your card is beautiful inside and out CG!! I love your gatefold design and your vibrant and cheery colors. Thanks for joining us at ODBD!!

  4. This is lovely! I love what you did with the die cuts. I never make gatefold cards because I can't get them to stay closed, like lie flat and I'm not sure why that is. If you have a tip I would love to hear it. I am so glad you share your card with us. Thank you so much for playing along in our Graph'it Colouring Crazy challenge. I hope you join us again. Good Luck! ~ Lizzy DT
