I’ve been rather busy for the past couple of days and I’m sorry I have not had time to post any cards. Here’s another fall card I made using the Gather Together Stamp Set, the Gathered Leaves Dies, and the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. It was made with a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2 card base of Thick Whisper White Cardstock. I’ve cut another piece of Whisper White Cardstock at 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the embossed panel on the front of the card. I only embossed the top portion of the panel, leaving about 3/4″ at the bottom for stamping my greeting. I stamped “Hello” in Bumblebee Ink on the bottom-right of this panel and adhered a 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper above it.
The largest leaf image from the Gathered Together Stamp Set was stamped on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Black StazOn Ink. Before cutting it out with the matching die from the Gathered Leaves Dies Set, I sponged Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, and Shaded Spruce Inks on it so it looked like a fall leaf.
Next, I cut out 2 of the three-leaf images from the Gathered Leaves Dies Set using some Rainbow Glimmer Paper. All the leaves where then placed on the left side of the card front.
A Bumblebee Ribbon bow was placed on the leaves with Glue Dots. Three Champagne Rhinestone Jewels were adhered to the card front and then I sprinkled a little Bumblebee Ink with my Water Painter on the paper and the outside of the card was finished.
