2 different cards

Hello my dear friends:

I forgot to post these cards...but it is never to late, right?
So today, even though we are all of us in full gear for Christmas; I wanted to show these 2 cards..before passing to the Christmas ones...

The first is quit simple...reproducing a nice fall scene with these cute squirrels...

The second card, has the background  colored with watercolors and even I used christmas dies (the bird and the snowflakes) because of the colors I think it can be used for fall as well...

Catttails Bookmark and Card

Hello Dear Friends:

I made a bookmark and a card using the Cattails die from Memory Box...
Here are the bookmarks

I glued the die on top of an acetate front panel

The only difference with my original "Bendi" card is that this time 
I curved the front and back  flaps... 
to give it a new twist...
instead of cutting "rectangles"  
I curved the edges (free hand with scissors)

Here it is the Video that I made
