Now that you’ve enjoyed my autumn cards from yesterday here are the quick and easy instructions for how you can create a simple All About Autumn card.
- Card Base: Copper Clay Card Stock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
- First Layer: All About Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5-1/4″ x 4″
- Inside Card: Very Vanilla Card Stock: 5-1/4″ x 4″
- Inside: DSP scrap: 5-1/4″ x 3/4″
- Greeting: Copper Clay scrap 3-1/2″ square AND Very Vanilla scrap 3–1/4″ square
Putting the Pieces Together:
- Attach the DSP layer to the card front with adhesive of your choice.
- Stamp the leaf greeting, from the Cheers to the Season stamp set, onto the Very Vanilla scrap using Copper Clay Classic Ink.
- Use the #6 (from the center) Deckled Circle Die and the (Mini) Cut & Emboss Machine to die cut the image.
- Use the #7 (from the center) Deckled Circle Die and the (Mini) Cut & Emboss Machine to die cut the image from the Copper Clay card stock scrap.
- Attach these two circle layers to each other using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (aka “green” glue) or the adhesive of your choice.
- Attach these layers to the card front as shown using Dimensionals.
- Add bling using an odd number of “bling pieces”.
- Using a 5-1/2″ piece of Copper Clay 3/8″ Textured ribbon, tie it in a knot and attach it to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot. Trim the ends with Paper Snips.
- Inside card: add the 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Attach the coordinating ‘scrap’ piece of DSP to the left or right side of the Very Vanilla card stock.
Prepare to Mail Your Card!
Now, prepare to mail your card to some fortunate, deserving recipient. Make someone’s day. I am NOT asking for you to mail your card to me but as I was sorting through our mail this evening I said to my sweetie: “This is when a hand stamped card from a real person would be a wonderful addition to our mailbox”. Wouldn’t YOU like to get something other than junk and advertising mail? Let’s make it happen..
Thank you so much for popping in today. Please leave a comment below if you’re looking for a specific project or technique. And don’t forget to make a card and then make someone’s day by sending it to them. I’m addressing all of my recent class card samples today, ready for sending in the next few weeks. I hope to make lots of friends and ex-neighbors smile.
I’m trying something new………please consider leaving a (google) review of working with me and my stamping business. I’ll figure out how to better present the request and link as I move forward. Thanks!
