The fall kits are coming! The fall kits are coming!

Laurie here, and I am so excited about the fall kits, but I still have a project to share with you using my Garden Sunkissed kit

While cutting all of the paper flowers for this card, I was reminded of the paper garden on the walls of Mrs. Threadgoode's room in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. There's no real good quote from the movie about it, but I was just reminded of that scene in the movie and the movie itself. I love that movie.

I made this card to send to my aunt, so I wrote on the inside of the card BEFORE I adhered everything to the back. It made writing so much easier. Ha ha! I hope my aunt likes it. Of course, the card was too big to fit into a standard envelope. I should have thought about that before designing it, but oh well. It was totally worth it!

I used the Kaisercraft butterfly stamp and the Lemoncraft paperribbon, and ephemera cards. From my own stash I used a Stampin' Up stamp pad and some gem embellishments.

I also used my Martha Stewart scoring board to help me fold the paper in straight lines and create the gate-fold card opening.

Thanks for looking and have a beautiful day!
