I love fall and while we are in the heat of summer, I enjoyed creating and sharing these cards on this week’s Facebook Live. You can watch the replay here:
For my first card, I used one of my favorite card layouts – I know I use it frequently! Like most of my cards, I started with a Thick Basic White base. Then I made the small scallop edge created with the Scallop Contour dies and Crumb Cake card stock. I added a 1 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ strip of Rustic Harvest DSP along the right edge of the card front and then layered the Crumb Cake scallop strip on top.
I stamped the leaf image with Crumb Cake ink onto a panel of Basic White measuring 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″. I used my Bone Folder and the Dark Basic Black Blend to add some splatters to this panel. I stamped the words in Tuxedo Black ink onto a small Basic White panel and then used my Paper Snips to angle the edge. I added a double bow made with Linen Thread beneath the word panel and attached this to my card front with dimensionals. To finish the card, I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
Add a little extra touch: Use a piece of Designer Paper and adhere it to the flap of your envelope. Trim excess – following the lines of the envelope flap and you have made the envelope a little extra special!
For my second card I inked up the leaf image with Pale Papaya ink. Then I used a Sponge Dauber with Calypso Coral ink and added some ink onto the leaf for some contrast in color. (You can see me do this in the facebook live video). This is fun to do and for the leaves you could switch up the inks for a multitude of colors! Each leaf will turn out a little different – just like in nature.
I stamped the leaf image onto a die cut shape from the Seasonal Labels dies.
Again, I started with a Thick Basic White card base and then embossed a panel of Basic White with the Leaf Fall embossing folder. I added a strip of Splendid Day Specialty Paper along the left edge, as well as a piece of the 7/8″ Natural Finish Ribbon.
Then I attached the leaf panel to the card front. I stamped “Hello” onto a small circle die shape from the Stylish Labels dies. These have become a “go to” for me – there are so many great shapes in this set of dies – and in multiple sizes.
To finish the card, I added a Linen Thread bow and a sprinkling of the Champagne Rhinestone gems.
Extra Touch: I embossed the envelope flap with the Leaf Fall Embossing Folder and then decided to use a Blending Brush and Calypso Coral ink to highlight the embossing. I like how it turned out and my viewers seemed to like it as well!
Hope you have enjoyed these cards today! I really enjoyed making them and sharing them with you!
