A Piece of Autumn in an Envelope

Have I mentioned that I LOVE fall? Well, I do!

I found this delightful fabric months ago and wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it (table cloth, place mats, dinner napkins?) but I took it home anyway. While looking for some inspiration this morning, I peeked into one of my fabric drawers and decided that this fabric will have a purpose beginning today! These cards are full of texture and depth: floral fabric, red thread, red sheer ribbon, festive green brads,  brown tag – all on a cardboard note card. I chose warm cardboard note cards instead of  crisp white note cards because how many autumn leaves are a hospital white? 🙂

I thought about stamping some text onto this tag, but decided to leave it up to you! Just think of the possibilities: “Grandma” “Mom” “Thank You” “Hello” “Smile” “Thinking of You” “Congrats” “Autumn!” “You’re Invited!” These 4 customizable pieces of autumn can be yours today!

Naww, it is actually quite a neat design..busy, holds visual interest and detail. Here are a couple samples:
