Thanksgiving is next week and Autumn is drawing to a close.  So with todays card I am celebrating Autumn.  And, I think that we all should.   With the wonderful colors of the leaves, the smell of smoke coming from chimneys at night, the cool air on your face, pumpkin pie, turkey, and gathering with family these are all things that we do to celebrate Autumn.  Even if we know that’s what we are doing or not.   Today’s card is a celebration on Autumn, but it’s in an elegant way.  Here’s a look at today’s card.


Color Combination:

For the colors on this card I picked colors that are not necessarily fall colors but they are very popular right now.   I picked Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White, and Copper.


The main focus of the card is in a monochromatic color scheme.  with the addition of the copper which can be counted as a compliment in a way.

Tips & Tricks:

You are going to run your  4 x 5 1/4 piece of whisper through the big shot using either tab one or by removing the adaptor plate.  You will place the whisper white cardstock inside the Pretty Paisleys Texture Impression Embossing folder.  Sit this aside.   Next you will take a scrap piece of whisper white and stamp one of the acorns in Versamark ink and add copper embossing powder then heat emboss.  Net stamp the acorn top in Rich Razzleberry and punch both out using the acorn builder punch.   Stamp the little leaf from Vintage Leaves in Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry one on top of the other.   Next stamp “Let us celebrate” from Balloon Celebration using Sweet Sugarplum.  Next I stamped Autumn from the Project Life Date it stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum under the Let us celebrate.


The acorn was built up using mini glue dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I placed it on the other side of the leaves to balance everything out.  This was matted on a piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  All of this was mounted on a Rich Razzleberry cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 to make a standard A2 size card.  I created this card to be a side folding card.

Everything works so nice together that it was the Autumn gods smiling down on us today as we created this card.  As we get ready for next weeks festive time of thanks we all need to not only give thanks for what has happened in our lives.  But, we also need to celebrate Autumn since it will be coming to an end in the next few weeks and we move into the Christmas Season.  Next week also will kick off the Online Extravaganza, where there will be select items up to 40% off the retail price as well as some special bundles created for the week long event.  The event will kick off and end with a Flash Sale with some very wonderful specials, you will not want to miss.  I will have all the information on my blog on Sunday.  Here’s another look at today’s card.


Thanks for dropping bye I hope that you give this card a try.  Don’t forget to check out the special deals next week and stock up on everything that you need.  Most of the specials will only be as supplies last so you will want to get them as soon as possible.  I will be running a Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday Specials that you will not want to miss.   My newsletter subscribers got a little extra perk today in my Newsletter VIP promotion.
