The Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 632 is a color challenge. We are using the colors Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, and Early Espresso.
These are great fall colors and coordinate so well with the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. I decided to highlight this paper in my card today. We'll also be using the Gather Together bundle. It's also a very easy fun fold.
Start with a base of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score at 2 and 3 1/8, turn paper around and score the same from the other side. The center section will be the front of the card. Bend down on each side of it. The next fold on each is folded up. Use a Bone Folder to burnish each fold.
You will need 2 pieces of the Gilded Autumn paper cut to 1 7/8 x 5 3/8. These will go on each end.
You will also need 2 pieces of Very Vanilla that measure 2 1/8 x 5 3/8. One of these will be embossed using one of the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders. They come in a set of two. This vanilla piece goes on the center front. The other vanilla piece goes on the back of the card in the center.
Stamp the wood circle from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Early Espresso. Fussy cut with snips. Add to the center of the front with dimensionals.
Stamp the largest leaves from Gather Together on Very Vanilla paper in Mint Macaron. Color this using a brush from the pack of Water Painters using the ink in the lid of the inkpad. Cut out using the Gathered Leaves dies. Place these with the stem of the leaf near the center of the wood and pointing up, the other pointing down.
Use the Gathered Leaves dies to emboss and cut 4 leaves. There are 3 different types so you'll need 2 of one of them. If you spritz water on the card stock and then cut, the embossing has more definition. Make 2 each of the Mint Macaron and the Cajun Craze. Cut an additional leaf for the other side. Add the leaves two pointing up and two pointing down.
Stamp the saying from Gather Together in Early Espresso. Use a 3/4 inch of vanilla scrap. Trim each end. Add a bow of Linen Thread with a rolled up glue dot. The saying goes on dimensionals.
I have a video showing how to make this card. Enjoy!
