Story of Elegance 

Welcome to Tuesday!  I’m starting to see leaves changing and the hummingbirds are gone from my feeder.  Autumn is here.  In celebration of the season, I chose to work with the Lots of Leaves Bundle.  This fun bundle is comprised of the Love of Leaves Stamp Set and the Stitched Leaves die set.

Of course with fall in the air, my card today,  I chose a color palate that reminds me of Autumn.

This card has a ton of texture.  Here’s a closer look!

Here’s how I created this card:

1: Cut a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8 ” piece of Cajun Craze card stock and adhere to a card base made with Thick Very Vanilla card stock.

2: Cut a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock and emboss using the Dainty Diamond 3D Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the Cajun Craze panel.

3. Die cut three leaves using the die from the Stitched Leaves die set.  I used one each of the colors from my palate.  Adhere to the embossed panel.  Be sure to leave room for the sentiment panel beneath it.

4.  Die cut  the base for the sentiment panel  in Cajun Craze using  the third largest die in the Stitched Nested Label die set.

5.  Die cut a sentiment panel in Very Vanilla using the fourth largest die in the Stitched Nested Label die set.  Stamp the sentiment onto the die cut using Early Espresso ink and the stamp from the Little Treats stamp set.  Adhere the stamped sentiment to the base, then adhere the sentiment panel to the card.

6.  Make a bow using Copper Trim ribbon and adhere to the base of the leaves.

7. Add Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.
