Hello to you today! Are there signs of fall where you live? Here in North Carolina, it's still feels like summer, but fall will come. This makes me think of my son Jeff. Way back when he was in kindergarten, as we were driving home he told me he had to look for signs that say fall on them. He had that just a little mixed up!
My card for today uses the stamp set Beauty & Joy found on page 51 of the Holiday catalog. It's one that you just could miss. It's kind of stuck in a corner.
I took the sample on page 51 as inspiration for my card. The base is Grapefruit Grove measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. Stamp the leaves from Beauty & Joy in Versamark around the edges of the base.
My next layer is Crumb Cake cut to 3 3/4 x 5. Stamp over this whole layer with the leaves in Versamark.
On a piece of Whisper White, stamp the tree. I started from the bottom. The pot is stamped in Crumb Cake. The stem is in Early Espresso. For the leaves, stamp first in Grapefruit Grove. With a sponge dauber, add some Early Espresso ink directly to the stamp itself and stamp. Cut out the plant with the Stitched Shapes Dies. Add with dimensionals.
I used the twine from the Nature's Twine in the annual catalog. I separated the twine into 3 parts. I just feel like the twine lies flatter this way. Run a length of the twine down the center of the Crumb Cake layer. I just tape it with regular tape on the back. Tie a double bow and attached it with a glue dot at the top of the oval.
Stamp the saying from Beauty & Joy in Early Espresso. Punch with the Classic Label Punch.
Glue the Crumb Cake layer to the base of the card.
Here is the inside of the card. The saying is from the To a Wild Rose stamp set and is stamped in Early Espresso. I inked up the leaves in the same way as on the front. I did stamp them off first so the words would show. Hint: Clean the stamp each time before you stamp again. You do not want to contaminate your Grapefruit Grove pad.
