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.

The Paper Cuts
Sahara Sand Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and the second smallest Stitched Nested Labels die.
Cajun Craze Cardstock: Pumpkin Punch
Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 3″ x 5 1/2″ and a leaf.
Soft Suede Cardstock: a scrap for the stem punch.
I used Cajun Craze Ink to randomly stamp the pumpkin, stem and leaf on the Sahara Sand card base. Masking helped to get the stems and leaves in place.
I stamped a pumpkin with Cajun Craze Ink on Cajun Craze Cardstock, a stem in Soft Suede Ink on Soft Suede Cardstock and a leaf in Mossy Meadow Ink on Mossy Meadow Cardstock. I punched the pumpkin, stem and fussy cut the leaf. I glued the stem and leaf to the pumpkin and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.
I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Sahara Sand Cardstock with Cajun Craze Ink and then cut it with the 2nd smallest Stitched Nested Dies. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back left side.
I ran the Mossy Meadow Cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine in the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder then wrapped Linen Thread around it twice vertically and tied a double bow.
I adhered the embossed panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and popped the pumpkin and label on.
I stamped the sentiment and leaves on the inside of the card and the pumpkin and leaf on the envelope with Cajun Craze Ink.
