Beautiful Autumn Grateful Heart Cards
The Beautiful Autumn stamp set has some lovely sentiments, so I decided to highlight my favorite with a pretty blocked background. I started by selecting a Designer Series Paper pattern that had a nice color combination, then I chose a coordinating DSP pattern and solid color of cardstock to match.
Background Basics—For the first card, I started by cutting a 3-1/2" x 1-3/8" strip of the striped Gilded Autumn DSP, a 2-1/4" x 3-1/4" leaf pattern from the same DSP and a 1-1/8" x 3-1/4" piece of Mint Macaron cardstock. I embossed the cardstock with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, then adhered all three pieces to a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla. I tied some Forever Greenery gauzy textured Very Vanilla Trim around the panel, then mounted it to a Mint Macaron card base.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Beautiful Autumn sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch. I punched another Everyday Label shape from Copper Foil, cut the shape in half length-wise, and positioned the two halves to frame the top and bottom of the sentiment. It's popped up over the ribbon with Dimensionals.
Autumn Accents—I stamped the Beautiful Autumn outline leaves in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then stamped the fill images over the top in stamped-off Cajun Craze and stamped-off Crumb Cake. They were punched out with the Autumn Punch Pack and attached to the sentiment with Glue Dots. I finished with a single Champagne Rhinestone Jewel.
Inside The Card—Stamp some additional leaves on the inside of the card, along with a matching Beautiful Autumn sentiment. If you look closely, you'll see that I used the tiny leaves image to add a pattern behind the words in stamped-off Mint Macaron ink.
Two Cool—I changed up the sizes of my blocks for this horizontal card with the same basic design. This time, the striped piece measures 4-1/4" x 1-1/8", the Cajun Craze DSP is 3-1/4" x 2-1/4" and the Cajun Craze textured cardstock piece is 1-3/8" x 2-1/4". I decided to do without the ribbon on this one. It's mounted on a Cajun Craze card base.
Sweet Sentiment—I finished off the card just like the first one, only changing the color of of one of the leaves to stamped-off Mint Macaron.
Inside The Card—I love how the inside of this card turned out. This could easily be a card front! I stamped the Beautiful Autumn images in Crumb Cake along the side to create a decorative border, then add stamped-off Cajun Craze color to just a few of them. It looks lovely with the coordinating sentiment, don't you think?
