The Seasons Are Changing

The weather has taken a big turn for many of us this past week.  It seems like the leaves were just at their most beautiful as they changed celebrating the new fall season.  This week those leaves are gone replaced for many with snow.  As this happens though, we cannot forget that Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and there are many who will not be able to be with their family, but they don't need to be left out.  Send them a card to let them know that you are thinking of them during this time of year!

This card is made using left over paper scraps.  I save the small pieces that I have punched, die cut from or used in my die cut machine to turn into new paper.  I didn't want a bright white paper for it so I added some brewed tea to the white pulp and then tea died some lace to match.  The new sheets were all made using the Papermill Pro Envelope and Stationary Kit and the basic paper making instructions. I used torn edges on the new paper to make a subtle change to the squared look of the card and punched leaves from the newly created sheets to finish it off.
