Good Morning! Are you getting fall weather and foliage? We are here in Pennsylvania. The foliage hasn’t peaked, but the cooler weather really sets us up for Halloween. So I decided to make a Fall Birthday card with the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I was inspired to make falling leaves by the sketch in the Sunday Stamps SSC268 Going In Circles Challenge:
I stamped the woodgrain stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves cling stamp set in Pool Party ink on the side of a Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the spatter stamp over the wood grain in Crumb Cake and around most of the panel, using first and second generation stamping. I cut the panel with the third largest Stitched Rectangles die and adhered it to a Cinnamon Cider mat. I adhered the panel to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base with dimensionals.
I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cinnamon Cider, Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee on Very Vanilla and cut each leaf out with the coordinating die. I cut the small detailed leaf from Bumblebee and the long detailed leaf from Cinnamon Cider using the Intricate Leaves dies. I adhered the leaves to the card front with liquid glue.
I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet As A Peach photopolymer stamp set in Mossy Meadow on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with the long Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered a length of Diamond Weave ribbon to the card with glue dots and adhered the label over the ribbon with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three brushed metallic dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the woodgrain and spatter from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel just like the card front. I stamped the other leaves in Pumpkin Pie and Cinnamon Cider and stamped the sentiments from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Mossy Meadow. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
Leafy cards are great themes for Masculine Birthdays, especially in the fall. The Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle is perfect for this, especially with the rustic background stamps that are beautiful with the stamped and die cut leaves.
