AUTUMN DAYS!


This card alone makes me NEED the Autumn Days stamp set! At our last Demonstrator get together we made a little assembly line and put this card together. It was definitely a group effort that was well worth it.

We used the Top Note Die for the Big Shot and made three of them, one Very Vanilla, one Kraft and one Soft Suede. The Very Vanilla Top Note was used as our base. We trimmed the edge off the Kraft Top Note for the second layer and then used the bottom one third of the Soft Suede Top Note for the bottom of the Top Note Die Piece. We stamped the wheat images onto the Kraft Top Note Die with Soft Suede Ink and then stamped the leaves in Soft Suede Ink onto the Soft Suede Top Note Die. The sentiment, "Happy Father's Day" is from the Teeny Tiny Words stamp set and is stamped onto Kraft card stock and punched with the new Modern Label Punch. We popped the sentiment up with a deminsional and added a Kraft Cordurouy button. Our bird image is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock in Rich Razzleberry ink. Then we also stamped the bird on Very Vanilla card stock in Soft Suede ink and cut out the head and wing and attached them to the Rich Razzleberry image. The base of the card is Rich Razzleberry card stock that was random stamped with the leaf image in Rich Razzleberry ink. We added an additional leaf stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Very Vanilla cardstock to the corner of our bird image. Then we needed a little ribbon, so we used a piece of Rich Razzleberry Dotted Grosgrain and used the solid side (instead of the dotted side).

Okay, do you see why we made it a group effort? I have to admit, it was definitely worth all the work!!
