Falling Leaves Wishing You Well Card featuring the Gather Together Stamp Set



Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another project for my 12 Days of Fall Mini Series.  This card features the Gather Together Stamp Set, and the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.  This fun Fall themed suite of products is perfect for this time of year with the rustic changing colors and the crisp cool air.  Here's a look at the card I made.

I started out my card with a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 to make a top folding card.  I then took a piece of Whisper White cut at 2 1/4 x 5 1/4 and stamped the large leaf and dotted textural stamp in the background using Pretty Peacock ink.  Once the stamping was complete I attached this to my card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I next took a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock cut at 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 and positioned it where the edges were touching in the middle tightly.

I then added a strip of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper cut at 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 to the center of the Pretty Peacock strip I just added.  To that I added a 1/2" x 5 1/4" strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock and layered on a 1/4" x 5 1/4" of Terracotta Tile Cardstock to add a little more interest  and color to the card.  At this point I needed something to act as an embellishment so I took scraps of Terracotta Tile, Mint Macaron, and Merry Merlot cardstocks and spritzed them with a little water and used the leaf dies from the Gather Leaves Dies and ran them through my Die cutting machine.  This allowed for a little darker color on the inside of the vines of each of the embossed and die cut leaves.  I added a my sentiment on a 3/4" strip of Whisper White cardstock stamped in Pretty Peacock ink and popped it up on dimensionals.  I added the three leaves around the sentiment to look like they were falling using dimensionals also.
To finish off my card I added a piece of whisper white cut at 4 x 5 1/4 stamped with one of the large leaves in the corner.  That was attached to the inside of the card with adhesive and once I decorate the envelope this card will be ready to go.
