I used the Sparkle of the Season Bundle (Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set + Seasonal Swirls Dies) from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set + Beautiful Trees Dies) from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to make this Fall foliage card. I love trees in any season and I love the colors of Fall. As a Southerner my Falls were brief…going quickly to dry brown, but I moved to the Northeast in my 20s and Oh!My! a whole month of beautiful color! I even tried to send preserved Fall leaves home to my parents to share the beauty. I hope you enjoy the card I’m sharing with you tonight!
The Paper Cuts
- Soft Suede Cardstock: 4-1/4″x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base) and a tree trunk die cut from Beautiful Trees Dies.
- Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 4-7/8″ (front layer) and 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
- Calypso Coral Cardstock: 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
- Bumblebee Cardstock: 10 leaf die cuts (there are 2 leaves per die cut) from Seasonal Swirls Dies.
- Basic White Cardstock: 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies diecut, Tasteful Labels die cut, and 3-3/4″ x 5″ (inside panel)
I began by stamping the triple leaf image from the Sparkle of the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Bumblebee Inks onto the Stitched Rectangle die cut to fill in the tree top and the ground cover. I occasionally placed the tree die cut on the rectangle to gage placement. I repeated the leaves on the bottom edge of the envelope and inside panel. I then used a Blending Brush to apply Bumblebee and Pumpkin Pie Ink to these areas.
In Soft Suede Ink, I stamped the tree base from Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set (on the Stitched Rectangle) and the sentiment from the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set (onto the Tasteful Labels die cut).
To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the panels and leaves. I popped up the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
