Hi Everyone! Are you all in the swing of everything autumn? Around here it seems like no matter where you go, there is pumpkin spice, leaves changing colors, and even some cooler temperatures. So it stands to reason that my card today features Fall colors, and is a fun Thank You card. To me, this just fits! So let’s have a look!
For this card I am using Classic Crest Natural White for not only my base, but also for my embossing and die cutting. I am cutting an A2 card base (8 1/2 inches x 5 1/2 inches and then scoring at 4 1/4 inches). With the leftover half of the cardstock, I am cutting it into two pieces, both 5 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches. I am taking one of these two pieces and using an embossing folder that I have had for literally years, called Honeysuckle Vines, from Anna Griffin, I am running this through my Gemini Die Cutting machine. Next, I am using the other piece of Natural White and with heart dies from The Stamp Market which I just got while participating in an event called Crop and Create.
Next, I am using a coordinating stamp set that goes with that die set I just mentioned, and using the veins part only of a two step stamp. I am actually using colored cardstock and stamping the veins on, then die cutting the leaves. For this I am using cardstock in Orange Fizz Pop Tone Cardstock, Adobo Textured Cardstock, and Yellow Jacket Textured Cardstock, and for my stamping I am using inks from Catherine Pooler in Samba, Orange Twist and Tiki Torch.
Now that we have all our pieces, we will assemble our card using ScorTape. And here you have it!
I do hope you have enjoyed this project, and as always I can’t wait to see what you create!
