Autumn Card for Papermill DT Call

Having a quick look at Facebook yesterday morning I noticed a post from Papermill who are looking for a new DT member. To enter all you need to do is make something with an Autumn theme and here is the link if you want to have a go: Papermill Design Team Call

Well, they certainly started something. I have made the following card to enter but I was also in the process of making a shadow box and the gorgeous autumn colours I 'found' in my stash have also inspired me to complete the box in the same theme. I will post photo's of the box when its finished but for now, here is my card.

For the main card I used brown card stock and added backing paper from my stash. The flower is actually a sunflower and I cut the layers out in three different colours (used the same card for the leaves and slogan as well).

The flower was lightly sanded and the edges inked (charcoal) to give it a more weathered feel. Liquid pearls (copper) have been added to finish off.

So why not have a go and enter the DT call yourself, I bet most of you have a stash of gorgeous autumn colours in your papers that are perfect for this challenge. Click here for more details.

Oh, and here is a quick sneaky peak at the box in its very early stages. So far I have stuck together all the card to make the box, added paper and stuck the back on. The hardest part now will be to decorate it:


  1. The autumn card is lovely, I do like the stepper design and the colours are lovely

  2. Lovely autumnal colours in your first card - can't wait to see the finished box project
