Banner Year isn't one of those stamp sets that might catch your eye the first time through the July-August Mini Catalog. It's found on page 65. When you take a second look, you'll see that it's a great stamp set. It can truly take you year round. Today I have a card for the fall. Fall isn't here yet in NC, but it's coming. I'm ready for cooler temps and floating leaves. Anyway, here is my card.
This is a pretty simple card. Don't you love those? The card base is Early Espresso. The layer of patterned paper is from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. It measures 4 x 5 1/4.
The next layer of Whisper White it 2 3/4 x 4. Stamp to make your own designer paper. Start with the pumpkin and stamp in Pumpkin Pie. For the stem and leaf, color directly on the stamp with a Early Espresso marker and a Granny Apple Green marker. The acorn is stamped in Soft Suede ink. Then color over the top with the Early Espresso marker. The leaf is stamped in Crushed Curry.
Stamp the saying in Soft Suede on a 1/2 inch piece of Whisper White. Glue near the bottom of the panel and trim to fit.
Add a bow made from the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon. Use a glue dot.
For the inside of the card, stamp the squirrel at the bottom of the cardstock. Add the acorn as on the front.
The saying is stamped in Pumpkin Pie and is from the Banner Year stamp set.
