Freshly Made Sketches 452 and Color Throwdown 610 came together in this card. I took advantage of all the white space for FMS610, and the ctd610 colors added interest and movement.

Here’s my card:

Here are the challenge banners:


  • I chose Cherry Cobbler, Bumblebee, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede for the autumn colors. I couldn’t figure out whether the yellow-ish option had more yellow or pumpkin color so I used both. Might not really meet the color challenge, but it’s my solution.
  • First, I decided to use Bumblebee for the base of the card. The cardstock measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches to create a tent card.
  • The first mat of Soft Suede measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • I trimmed two pieces of Whisper White, one for the front and one for the inside. Both pieces measure 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.


  • I used the Forever Fern stamp set to stamp the diagonally opposite corners. The splatter stamp from this set added a bit more texture to the corners. Then, I added just one splatter in the opposite corners just so it wasn’t quite so stark.
  • After stamping the corners, I needed to stamp the sentiment from Autumn Greetings in Soft Suede. Originally, I was going to stamp the greeting on a white oval and border it with a bit larger Soft Suede oval. However, I am thrilled that I thought about the double-time stamping option instead.
  • After cropping the stitched oval, I decided that I would just create an outline on the outside of the oval. To accomplish this, I used the Soft Suede marker to create the edge.
  • On the inside, I stamped the Cherry Cobbler and Bumblebee leaf stems and added one splatter stamp in each of the four corners.
  • The inside sentiment is also from the Autumn Greetings stamp set.

Time to finish the card

  • I used the multipurpose glue to adhere everything except the sentiment oval. Using dimensionals under the sentiment added a bit of height.
  • Finally, I needed to take care of decorating the envelope. Instead of DSP on the envelope flap, I used the Forever Fern to stamp the flap and on the front of the card.
  • With that, I’d finished this card/envelope set.
