This weekend’s temperatures didn’t feel like Autumn, but the leaves started falling onto my back porch. Does that mean we are ushering in Fall? I hope so! I love the warm colors and cool, crisp air that Autumn offers. The very prospect of it inspired me (along with this week’s sketch challenge at the Global Design Project) to make this simple card:
- Gather Together. “May this season bring you smiles & love that will last all season” – what a gorgeous sentiment! I might normally fight the word “smiles” in a sentiment, but I think it’s perfect here (I think we need more smiles and love). The font is gorgeous, too, and it’s just waiting to be cropped with the 1-1/2″ Circle punch, framed with a Layering Circle Die and surrounded by beautiful leaves. The sentiment and leaves are found in the Gather Together stamp set, a Fall-themed photopolymer stamp set. The leaves are cropped with the Gathering Leaves Dies. Here’s a look at the Gather Together Bundle:
- Surprise – and Layer Measurements. You may think I pulled this gorgeous Designer Series Paper from the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper that coordinates with the Gather Together Bundle, but that’s not the case. I pulled this gorgeous backdrop from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper – it’s a beauty, no?Here are the measurements on the panels on this simple card (starting with the base of the card and working my way up):
- Crushed Curry – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored at 4-1/4″)
- Monster Bash Designer Series Paper – 5-1/4″ x 4″
- Soft Suede – 4-1/8″ x 2-7/8″
- Crushed Curry – 4″ x 2-3/4″
- Soft Suede – 4″ x 1-1/16″
- Crumb Cake – 4″ x 1″
- Thick Very Vanilla – two leaves with Gathered Leaves Dies
- Soft Suede – 1-5/8″ circle with Layering Circles Dies
- Very Vanilla – 1-1/2″ Circle punch
- Warm Colors. Yellows and browns make this card very warm – and we’ll need warmth as the weather starts to change. I LOVE Fall colors – there’s a simplicity to this color combination that I also love. If you love this combination of Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, please save this:
Bundles: Gather Together Stamp Sets: Gather Together Papers: Monster Bash Designer Series Paper, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Thick Very Vanilla Inks: Crushed Curry, Soft Suede Accessories: Gathered Leaves Dies, 1-1/2″ Circle punch, Layering Circles Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
