Yesterday, the monthly card class met via ZOOM.  Even though it’s virtual, it is fun to be able to continue creating together with others.  One of the cards from the class features products from the Gilded Autumn Suite Collection.  I’ve titled the card “Falling Leaves & Acorns” since the title describes the design of the page of paper for the background layer.  Perfect for creating fall themed cards is the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It’s a beautiful paper collection.  The Beautiful Autumn Bundle from the suite includes the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set and the coordinating Autumn Punch Pack.  Woohoo –  the punch pack coordinates with the leaves and acorns in the specialty designer series paper.  Y’all know I love it when a punch or die coordinates with the designer series paper!
