COPPER AUTUMN

Fell in love with those "Autumn Icons" dies from HA this month and since Darnell is having her NBUS challenge, these were the perfect choice!



For both the leaf and the pumpkin, I put some wide micropore tape on the back of my paper and then die cut.  The tape is leftover from when I had my knee surgery, but you can buy lots of places.  That way all the little bits and bobs stayed in place.  All the paper that I used came from a pad from Target that I bought last fall - love the shiny copper!  I have two guy birthdays in October, so these will be for Matthew and John.  The little sentiment strip was embossed with copper powder from HA.


 Love to have you visit and to read your kind comments.

  9. Just fabulous Betty! Thanks for the great tip about Micropore, I had never heard of that! I had heard about the 'Press n Seal', but we can't get that here in the UK, BUT, we CAN get Micropore! Thank you so much for your visit to my blog whilst I was away, it is so lovely to come back and read everyone's sweet comments! Have a lovely day my friend! Love & Hugs. Hazel xx
