Happy Monday and happy first day of August! I can’t believe we’re into August already. That just means that Fall is not far away! Speaking of Fall, I have a Fall themed card for you today.
For today’s card I paired the Hello Harvest Stamp Set, Rustic Pumpkin Dies, and a piece of the Rings of Love 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper to create this Fall themed friendship card. The Rings of Love DSP is a Sale-A-Bration item that you can get with a qualifying order through August 31, or while supplies last!
I started with a card base in Pumpkin Pie cardstock (appropriate for Fall, I think), then added a panel of the Rings of Love DSP. The Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder was used to emboss a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, then I used the 3rd largest die from the Deckled Rectangles Dies. This was added to the card front on top of the DSP panel.
Using the leaf stamp from the Hello Harvest Stamp Set, I stamped three leaves in Cherry Cobbler and three in Crushed Curry (more Fall colors!). I stamped the pumpkin image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink then colored the pumpkin using Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Crushed Curry in Cherry Cobbler ink. Coordinating dies from the Rustic Pumpkin Dies set were used to die cut all of the images, including the sentiment label.
The pumpkin and leaves were dry fit on the front of the card. The leaves were arranged around the pumpkin on the sides and bottom and adhered with glue. The Pumpkin was adhered in the center of the leaf arrangement using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment was adhered towards the bottom of the card front, slightly overlapping the Cherry Cobbler embossed panel.
A 3/4″ strip of coordinating DSP was adhered to the inside card panel along with a die cut leaf. Coordinating DSP also adorns the envelope flap and more leaves were stamped onto the envelope front.
To finish off today’s card I tied a small double bow using twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack.
Can you smell the falling leaves, and the fresh crisp air? Ahhhh!
