Card Tutorial: An Autumn Greeting!


Ah GORGEOUS Autumn! With so much rain this year, we lost a lot of leaves before they could turn colors. But even then, every day it's a delight to see the colors peek though the thick morning mist. These are the scenes that inspired today's card. Follow along to see how I made this card, starting with the supplies:

Supplies:
Artsy Leaves Stamp Set
Embroidered Greetings Stamp Set
Lemon Grass True Color Fusion Ink Pad
Candy Apple True Color Fusion Ink Pad  
Summer Days True Color Fusion Ink Pad  
Dark Roast True Color Fusion Ink Pad   
Gold Silk
Whip Cream 8.5 x 11 Cardstock
Details Pro Shears 4.5"
Easy Glide Permanent Adhesive Runner
Journey Foam Squares - Small


Stamp the Artsy Leaves onto Whip Cream cardstock with Dark Roast True Color Fusion ink.


Press Lemon Grass True Color Fusion Ink Pad face down on the leaves. Repeat with Candy Apple True Color Fusion Ink Pad and Summer Days True Color Fusion Ink Pad till you have a spread of autumn colors over the leaves. 
 

Cut the colored leaves with scissors following the stamped lines and cut one into a block.


Attach the cut out leaves with the Easy Glide adhesive runner. Add the artsy leaf block overlapping the other leaves with Journey Foam Squares - Small.


Splatter Gold Silk on the card.


On Whip Cream cardstock, stamp the sentiment 'Hello' from the Embroidered Greetings Stamp set and Candy Apple True Color Fusion Ink.
Cut the sentiment out with scissors and attach to the card with Journey Foam Squares.


Here's my finished card. I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and have fun with these lovely stamps!
