Warm Wishes with Authentique

This is my second submission for the Authentique October Color Challenge. I used papers from the Authentique Loyal and Celebrate Collections. These beautiful patterned papers worked wonderfully with the color challenge which includes: ivory, mountain pine and blacksmith.  I hand cut two trees from green Authentique and matted them with black Authentique. I adhered the tree on the right with dimensional adhesive.  I cut strips from the patterned paper and adhered it diagonally to another Authentique patterned paper.  To decorate the tress I added green star gems, clear gems and narrower strips of the same Authentique patterned paper. I matted the card on Authentique black and finished by attaching the handwritten sentiment.

Paper: Authentique Loyal and Celebrate Collections (green, black and patterned papers)
Cardbase: Paper Studios (ivory)
Gems: Studio G
Marker: Zig black
Adhesive: Scotch Advanced Tape Glider, Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam Tape
Ivory cardstock: Core'dinations


  1. Awesome use of the pattern paper!! I like how you make the design look cohesive with the same set of paper! I love the added gems on the trees! Beautiful job, Brenda!

  2. Such a cool use of the colors, I like the trees bordered with the darker color.
