Gilded Autumn - Have a Beautiful Day - Fall Card

Have I mentioned I am in LOVE with the new Gilded Autumn suite? Most specifically the specialty designer series paper? Today's card is another made with many of the suite products. Just so many options!


My Stampin' Up! Color Fusion for today is Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron and Early Espresso.



I used the following cuts of cardstock:

  • Cajun Craze: 8½" x 5½", scored at 4¼"

  • Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper: 4" x 5¼"

  • Very Vanilla: ¼" x 3½"

  • Early Espresso: 4" x ¾"

I also used the following stamps and/or dies:

  • Beautiful Autumn stamp set: "Have a beautiful day" sentiment

  • Beautiful Autumn stamp set: Acorn outline stamp

  • Beautiful Autumn stamp set: Solid Acorn "hat" stamp

  • Beautiful Autumn stamp set: Maple leaf outline stamp

  • Beautiful Autumn stamp set: Solid Maple leaf stamp

  • Beautiful Autumn stamp set: leaves stamp

  • Beautiful Autumn stamp set: wheat stamp

  • Autumn punch pack: Acorn and Maple punches

  • Banner pick a punch

Directions:

  1. Trim a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock to 8½" x 5½" and score at 4¼"

  2. User your bone folder to get a nice crisp fold in your card base

  3. Trim a piece of the multi-color (Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake - see image for further details) Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper to 4" x 5¼"

  4. Trim a piece of Very Vanilla to ¼" x 3½" (remember to check your scraps!)

  5. Trim a piece of Early Espresso to 4" x ¾" (remember to check your scraps!)

  6. Stamp the “have a beautiful day” sentiment stamp in Early Espresso ink on your strip of Very Vanilla cardstock

  7. Stamp the acorn outline stamp in Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla cardstock twice (so you have 2 images)

  8. Stamp the maple leaf outline stamp in Cajun Craze ink twice (so you have 2 images)

  9. Stamp the solid acorn stamp and acorn ”hat” in Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, stamping off once first to get a lighter shade (stamping on top of the outline stamps from step 7)

  10. Stamp the solid maple leaf stamp in Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, stamping off once first to get a lighter shade (stamping on top of the outline stamps from step 8)

  11. Stamp the long leaves stamp in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla cardstock

  12. Stamp the wheat stamp in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock

  13. Use the matching punches for the maple leaf and acorn stamps to punch out your stamped images

  14. Fussy cut out your long leaves and wheat stamped images using your paper snips

  15. Using the Banner pick a punch, punch your Early Espresso cardstock on either end (see image for further details)

  16. Using the Banner pick a punch, punch your Very Vanilla sentiment strip on either end (see image for further details)

  17. Cut a 17” strip of the copper ribbon from the Basketweave & Metallic combo pack

  18. Wrap the ribbon around the bottom of the designer series paper, approximately 1” from the bottom, twice and adhere on the back of the designer series paper with stamp and seal

  19. Apply Stampin’ Seal to the back of your designer series paper and adhere down lining up your left and bottom edges to the bottom and left side of your card base

  20. Apply Stampin’ Seal to the back of your Very Vanilla sentiment strip and adhere down, centered on your Early Espresso punched label

  21. Apply 3-4 Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of your Early Espresso label and adhere down, centered, over your designer series paper on the top layer of your copper metallic ribbon

  22. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to your punched and fussy cut acorns and leaves and apply down around your sentiment
