Fallen Leaves

Are you ready for fall? I know I am. It really does feel like fall here in Kansas. Some of the leaves on the trees are already beginning to change color. Anyway, here is a fall inspired card from the August Make and Take.

Stamps: French Foliage, Just Believe
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: So Saffron, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Peach Parfait
Accessories: Simply Score, Stampin’ Dimensionals

The card base is Early Espresso cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” with a 4 ¼” score. The next layer is Very Vanilla cardstock that was cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I scored around all four sides of the panel at ¼” to add subtle line details to the card front. Then the leaf image from French Foliage was stamped at the bottom of the cardstock in So Saffron ink. The greeting from Just Believe was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink at the bottom of the cardstock. This panel was adhered to the card front.

Next a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock was cut at 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”. The leaves from French Foliage were stamped in So Saffron, Peach Parfait, and Pumpkin Pie. The water spots image was stamped in Crumb Cake ink. Then the text image was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink. This panel was adhered to a 3” x 3” piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Then this layer was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensioanls.

I must say that I really truly love the French Foliage stamp set. It’s another one that is really easy to make a really pretty card with, and I just love the bright colored leaves in the fall. I hope you get a chance to give this stamp set a try, it really is fabulous!
