Hello

This time of year I start thinking about Autumn and the upcoming holidays. This year things are looking different, but I'm determined to celebrate the good. I'm feeling the need to create and be surrounded by beautiful and cheerful things, and I don't think I'm alone in that. Something as small as a hand stamped card or gift can make a big difference to someone you care about. I challenge you to spend some time making cards and gifts and sharing them - Together we can create a beautiful fall!

Bright Plaid Love of Leaves Hello Card

Project Inspiration

Plaids and leaves may make you think of flannel shirts and crisp Autumn days, but I think you'll like this unexpected, bright, warm twist.

This card features the Love of Leaves Bundle (#155195) and Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (#153527). The thing I love about the Plaid Tidings paper is that it has a plaid for every occasion.

It's great for all the things you might expect from plaid, but the bright colors are great for baby and Easter and the black and white patterns are ideal for elegant birthday or anniversary cards.

The stitching detail of the Stitched Leaves Dies (#153567) adds the extra bit of detail that gives a card the perfect finishing touch.

Project - Step 1

1. Stamp & Die Cut

Stamp the two small leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set on scrap Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry cardstock with VersaMark ink. Die cut with coordinating Stitched Leaves outline and center stitched pattern dies. 

Project - Step 2

2. Stamp & Stitch

Stamp assorted leaves from Love of Leaves stamp set on 3-3/4" x 5" Mango Melody cardstock with VersaMark ink. Line up the stitched stripes die at the top of the cardstock and die cut the stitched perforations.  

Project - Step 3

3. Die Cut Leaf

Die cut the largest leaf from the Stitched Leaves Dies from the center of the Mango Melody cardstock.

Project - Step 4

4. Stamp & Punch Greeting

Punch one end of a 4" x 1" Melon Mambo cardstock strip with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Stamp greeting near the punched end with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

Project - Step 5

5. Card Base & Layers

Cut Rich Razzleberry cardstock to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score at 4-1/4" along the 8-1/2" side. Layer 4" x 5-1/4" Plaid Tidings paper onto the front and 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White cardstock on the inside for a writing area.

Project - Step 6

6. Add Stampin' Dimensionals

Emphasize the die cut image by making it "float" on the card front.  To do this add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the Mango Melody layer near the edge of the die cut leaf and at the corners.  Add Stampin' Dimensionals behind the greeting.

Project - Step 7

7. Add Leaves & Greeting

Add greeting to the bottom left of the Mango Melody layer, trim off excess at the edge. Add layer to card front. Add Granny Apple Green leaf with Stampin' SEAL or Mini Glue Dots. Add Rich Razzleberry leaf with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Project - Step 8

8. Stamp & Cut

Stamp "hello" greeting on scrap Whisper White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Cut out greeting with Paper Snips and add to card with Mini Glue Dots.
