Hey everyone, happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well. I have been getting ready for my August Card Class and decided to take a break and play with some new product that is in the Holiday Catalog. My card was inspired by another demo who used the same sheet of DSP from the Pressed Petals pack. She was using some new Christmas items, but I am so anxious for fall to get here, I decided to play with fall items, the Gather Together Bundle specifically. And better yet, all the items to create the card are scraps leftover from other projects, including the gold sequins that are in this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit! Here are the measurements for today’s card:
- Card base in Old Olive cardstock cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
- Pressed Petals Specialty DSP cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 1/2″ x 3″
I started by stamping the leaf in Versa Mark ink on a scrap of Old Olive cardstock, and then heat embossing with some Copper Embossing Powder. I cut it out with the coordinating die. Then I cut out a leaf in Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry cardstock scraps. This die no only cuts out, but embosses the image too. Next I grabbed the piece of DSP and glued it down to the card base. I took the Whisper White scrap and stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink, flagged the ends and added it to the card front with dimensionals. I added the three leaves with dimensionals too. I thought the two smaller leaves needed something, so I sponged on some of the coordinating ink with sponge daubers. I found the bow of Crushed Curry Seam Binding Ribbon in my rack of leftovers and added it with a Mini Glue Dot. I still wanted some bling and found my Paper Pumpkin kit sitting there and remembered the sequins. Perfect!! What do you think?
