Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping Episode 30: A Simple Fall Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the next Episode of Rick's Saturday Simple Stamping.  In this Episode I am going to share with you how to create a Fall themed Birthday card using products from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  I created this card using the Here's A Card Stamp Set (from the Annual Catalog) and Gather Together Stamp Set (from the 2019 Holiday Catalog).  I have given you both the A2 size measurements for the US and Canada and the A4 measurements for everywhere else in the blog post.  Here's a look at my card for today.

I started off today's card by cutting a piece of Merry Merlot Cardstock (146979) in half to make a portrait style card (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 the finished size is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 or 14.9 cm x 21 cm) so cut your cardstock according to your top folding card measurements.  I then stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together Stamp Set (150589) in Merry Merlot Classic ink (147112) around the card.  Once this was complete, I stamped the pumpkins from the same set on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (100730) that measured 2 5/8 x 4 1/8 (11.8 cm x 6.3 cm) using Smoky Slate Classic Ink (147113).  I then stamped Happy Birthday from the Here's a Card Cling Stamp Set (149438) in the same Smoky Slate ink close to the bottom.  I added a little of the 1/4" Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon (149480) to this layer at the top and added a knot.  I then adhered this to a Night of Navy Cardstock (100867) mat cut at 2 3/4 x 4 1/4 (12 cm x 6.5 cm).  The Whisper White layer was added to the Night of Navy mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755).  Once I had everything mounted I added it to the card base on Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

To finish off the card I added a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the inside of the card cut at 4 x 5 1/4 (14.4 cm x 10 cm).  I stamped the large leaf in the bottom corner of the Whisper White layer in Merry Merlot ink and adhered it to the card base.  I then decorated the Whisper White Medium Envelope (107301) flap with the same images on the card with the same two colors.   This allowed everything to tie in.  On front of the envelope I just stamped the pumpkins in the bottom left hand corner with Smoky Slate ink.  That way I have the perfect coordination all the way around the card to give me a perfect presentation when sent to the recipient.
