Mix It Up Monday: Farewell Thankful Forest Friends and Woodland Embossing Folder

It’s Mix It Up Monday again and time for another colour combination from my In Color charts.

This one is quite a pleasing combination but it presented quite a challenge as I had a minuscule amount of So Saffron cardstock… and I needed to make about a dozen of these cards! The tiny banners were the answer to my problem as I could punch loads of these and still have some cardstock to spare. They don’t call me frugal for nothing, you know. 

I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous Woodland Embossing Folder and Thankful Forest Friends as they won’t be around for much longer; both will be retiring with the Autumn/Winter catalogue at the beginning of next year, which is a real shame as both are favourites of mine. I’ll particularly miss the embossing folder as it’s so gorgeous - look at the shadows it casts in my badly-lit photo. 

So now we’re on the countdown to Christmas and, after last Friday’s festiva wreath class (more of that later), I have another class coming up this Saturday, where we’ll be making a fabulous “bendy” card in a beautiful presentation box. There are extra projects for early finishers, too. It’s a project of fun techniques and fabulous folds and you’ll be guided through it, every step of the way. I have ONE place left on this class if you’re interested - it’s in Horsley Woodhouse from 1.30pm-4pm and all the details, plus registration, can be found here. Hope you can make it!



  1. Love your card and so sad that both items are retiring!! Jennifer, SU demo, Calgary, AB Canada

    1. I know! It's such a shame, particularly the embossing folder. :(


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
