Autumn is officially here and even though it’s still hot here in Southern Arizona I can celebrate with a fun Autumn Season of Thanks card. I used the gorgeous Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP paired with the Gather Together Bundle to create this card.
Start with the Cinnamon Cider cs card base. Cut a Cajun Craze cs panel and a Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP panel. Glue the Specialty DSP panel to the Cajun Craze cs panel, wrap them with a piece of Cinnamon Cider In Color Ribbon using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panel, and then glue the wrapped panels to the card base.
Die cut a Whisper White cs stitched label with the Stitched Nested Label dies. Stamp the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on the stitched label. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the stitched label to the card front overlapping the ribbon.
Stamp the large leaf from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White cs and then die cut out leaf with the Gathered Leaves Dies. Use a sponge dauber to add Cinnamon Cider ink to the leaf. Die cut three Brushed Metallic cs embossed leaves with the Gathered Leaves Dies.
Use Stampin’ Seal to loop the Gold Trim (from the Forever Greenery Trim combo pack) on the back of the die cut large sponged leaf. Be sure to let the strand ends show to add texture.
Glue the Brushed Metallic cs leaves to the card front tucked into the edges of the stitched label. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the large leaf with the Gold Trim to the card front overlapping the top of the stitched label and leaves. Fussy cut out three leave sprigs from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and use glue dots to tuck them around the large leaf.
Tie a small bow with the Cinnamon Cider ribbon and use glue dots to attach it to the left side of the large leaf overlapping the ribbon. Add Gilded Gems to the card front and stitched label.
Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs inside panel to write your message. Stamp the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink and a strip of Specialty DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
