Autumn Themed Handmade Card (Thanksgiving & Fall)

Autumn Themed Rustic Style Card

I just love to make things look rustic and Autumnal… like this card I have made today.

I decided to make this handmade Autumn themed card using the Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set and co-ordinating Gathered Leaves Dies – namely the trio of dies that not only die cut, but emboss too! They are just remarkable.

This Suite is featured in our Annual Catalogue – why not Contact me to get a free copy.

This project was inspired by many similar projects that I have made before but the reason for making another is that this card is for a card swap that I have signed up to for the month of October – the theme being Autumn, perfect!

The colours I chose to go for were Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and Crushed Curry – a perfect combination of autumn colours.

Look how gorgeous a stamp set this is and how effective I was able to stamp my own background, just like a dsp!

Instructions and Measurements:

Card Base
Card base is Mossy Meadow and measures 4 1/8″ x 5 7/8″
The Stamping layer is 4″ x 5 3/4″ – I stamped the larger of the stamps, the Maple leaf in Crushed Curry. I then added the little sprinkle effect stamp in between to fill up some space.

Sentiment Section
Sentiment Matt layer is Mossy Meadow and measures 4″ x 1 1/2″
The stamping layer for the sentiment strip is 4″ x 1″ and I stamped the Season of Thanks sentiment on the left side in Soft Suede.
Circular layer is very vanilla punched out with the 1 3/4″ retired circle punch and I added some soft suede ink around its edges.

Die Cut and Embossing
I then die cut some leaves using the dies that not only die cut, but emboss too! Great huh?
I adhered this to the circle section and secured to the right side of the sentiment banner.

I think this was a relatively easy project to make with stunning results – if you have these supplies please do try this card and please share with me so that I can see your creations.
