Hello friends and happy September! I hope you all had a nice, long Labor Day weekend. This month marks the official start of fall and it's my favorite season of the year here in New England. So, I'm kicking off the month with some fall theme cards in a variety of jewel toned colors today.
*Please note, the directions listed below will be for one card, but each of these cards were made the same way, using all of the same dimensions, I simply swapped out ink and cardstock colors. A list of supplies used is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card was made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I then cut a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of this same white cardstock. Using the Autumn Layered Leaves stamp set from Whimsy Stamps, I stamped the leaves and berries in orange, yellow and brown ink (or a mixture of blues/teals (for the blue card) and pinks and purples for the third card. I mounted that stamped image with a coordinating 5 1/4" x 4" piece of orange (teal or pink) cardstock.
I cut a 4" x 3" piece of vellum and adhered this to the center of the card with vellum adhesive. This vellum help to soften the stamped image and to bring attention to the word die. For the word die, I used the Autumn Word and Shadow die also from Whimsy Stamps. I cut the background shadow layer from orange, pink or teal cardstock. I then cut the thinner top layer from gold glitter cardstock. I layered the two die cut images together with LineCo liquid adhesive and then I mounted the entire word die to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
Do you have a favorite colors from this trio of cards? I'm all for the magenta pink and browns!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
