Gently Falling

I was surprised that I hadn't used Stampin' Up!'s Gently Falling stamp set yet for any fall cards this year.  It really is one of the prettiest set of leaves I own!  I combined it with Sweater Weather Designer Paper!

 

 

I hope you can see that I cut out the Apothecary Accent and then placed Designer Paper behind it.  Come back tomorrow to see what I did with the cut out piece!  It's a TWO-FER…you know…two uses out of one!  lol!

 

Here are the details on this card:

  1. The base is 4 1/4 x 11 of Cajun Craze, folded in half.
  2. I embossed the 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with Stylish Stripes.  Then sponged the lines with Crumb Cake ink.
  3. I cut out the opening with the Apothecary Accents Framelit, then placed Sweater Weather Designer Paper behind the opening.
  4. I stamped one of the long leaves from Gently Falling in Crushed Curry, then outlined with Chocolate Chip.  I did the two smaller leaves with stamped-off Cajun Craze and outlined in Chocolate Chip.  Then I cut them out.  I also stamped two acorns with Crumb Cake and outlined with Chocolate Chip and cut out.
  5. The leaves are placed on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I did a double loop bow from Linen Thread and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.
  6. Finally, I added a Very Vanilla strip of cardstock stamped with A Dozen Thoughts greeting.  LOVE that set and so glad I purchased it!
