This card is my entry for this week's Mojo Monday Challenge-MOJO110. I used up a lot of my Autumn Meadows Designer Paper (DSP) scraps. I also used some left over embossed pieces from the Autumn Splendor Thank You Card I posted last August.

Yesterday was kind of a rush, so I didn't take the time to take a lot of pictures. In fact, I didn't take any until I was all done with the card, so we'll have to make the most of it!
Stamp the leaf and acorn images onto Autumn Meadows DSP using VersaMark. Apply Gold Embossing Powder and heat emboss. Cut around the images with Paper Snips.
Use a Blender Pen to fill in the images with Really Rust and Chocolate Chip.
Run a 4" x 4" piece of Brushed Gold CS through the Big Shot with the Scallop Circle #2 Die. To emboss the tiny gold dots on the scallop edge, I used a glue pen I bought at a local craft shop. Unfortunately, the 2-Way Glue Pen in the Stampin' Up! catalog doesn't have a fine enough tip for this project.
Set the Circle Scissor Plus to 3" and cut a circle from the Autumn Meadows DSP. Ink around the edges with Chocolate Chip and attach to the scallop Circle with Snail.
Cut a lighter colored piece of Autumn Meadows DSP 1-7/8" x 1-7/8". Rub on the "Bless your Home" image as shown. Ink around the edges and attach to a 2" x 2" piece of Brushed Gold CS with Snail. Attach the scallop circle piece with Snail. (I'd like to use a lot more Stampin' Dimensionals on these layers, but then I run into postage issues.)
Cut contrasting Autumn Meadows DSP as follows: 5" x 5", 3" x 3-3/4", 1-1/2" x 5". Ink around all of the edges with Chocolate Chip.
Now, I did a dumb thing when I assembled my card. Instead of just wrapping my ribbon around the 1-1/2" x 5" piece, I attached that piece to the 3" x 3-3/4" piece first, then wrapped the ribbon around both pieces before tying the bow. That would have looked great if the scallop circle were smaller, but as it turned out, I just wasted a lot of ribbon that wasn't going to show anyway. *sigh*.
So anyway, here is how you should assemble the card:
Cut More Mustard CS 5-1/4" x 10-1/2" and score at 5-1/4" to create the card base. Attach the 5" x 5" DSP to the card front with Snail. Attach the 3" x 3/4" piece in the upper left with Snail as shown. Wrap the ribbon around the 1-1/2" x 5" piece and tie in front. Now attach that piece to the card front with Snail.
Cut a piece of Gold Elastic Cord 4" long and tie a knot on both ends. Fold in half and tuck it under the bow and attach with a Mini-glue Dot. Attach the acorns under the bow with Stampin' Dimensionals. tuck the stem under the bow and stick it to the Mini-Glue Dot holding the Gold Cord.
Attach the scallop circle to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
That's it. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will be inspired to create your own card.
Thanks for stopping by today.
