Today’s card features the Gathered Leaves Dies and the beautiful Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.


Country Home Stamp Set


I started with a piece of Early Espresso cardstock for the card base.  After cutting the paper (all the measurements can be found below the Supply List), I cut off 2-3/4″.  The cardstock I cut off, is the horizontal piece the leaves are on.

Next, I added a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to the inside the card and then attached a piece of Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper to the front of the card.  



I stamped the sentiment onto another piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Cajun Craze ink and the stamp set, Country Home.  Then I adhered it to the Early Espresso piece I cut off earlier.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back, but only on the right side (the part that will be on the Designer Series Paper). 



Time to finish the card and make some pretty leaves! The Gathered Leaves Dies not only cut out the leaves but emboss them too!  I used Mint Macaron, and Cajun Craze cardstock to cut out the leaves as well as another piece of Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper (the speckled leaf).  I adhered all the leaves to the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Glue except for the top Mint Macaron leaf to which I added several Stampin’ Dimensionals.
