I thought I was all done posting Thanksgiving cards this year, but this idea sort of popped into my head while I was working on my MOJO Monday entry this morning. I think the In Colors are perfect for this card.
Here are the supplies I used:
Stamp sets: Lovely as a Tree, Pg. 110 #115026; Autumn Splendor, Holiday Mini Catalog, Pg. 12 #116503; Grateful Greetings, Holiday Mini Catalog, Pg. 8 #116511
Paper: Crushed Curry Cardstock (CS), Pg. 155 #115319; Dusty Durango CS, Pg. 155 #115321; Soft Suede CS, Pg. 155 #115318; Bermuda Bay CS, Pg. 155 #115317; Very Vanilla Naturals CS, Pg. 157 #106530; Autumn Meadows, Holiday Mini Catalog, Pg. 13 #116769; Optional: Scrap of Really Rust CS, Pg. 156 #100661;
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pg. 156 #100908; Dusty Durango, Pg. 155 #115654
Accessories: Big Shot Die-Cut Machine, Pg. 194 #113439; Stampin' Up! Two Tags Die, Pg. 198 #115954; Gold Embossing Powder, Pg. 188 #109129; Clear Embossing Powder, Pg. 188 #109130; Heat Tool, Pg. 188 #100005; Embossing Buddy, Pg. 188 #103083; VersaMark, Pg. 190 #102283; Button Latte Designer Button, Pg. 181 #114333; Gold Elastic Cord, Holiday Mini Catalog, Pg. 27 #109867; Paper Piercing Tool, Pg. 191 #116631; Stamp-a-ma-jig, Pg. 191 #101049; Blender Pens, Pg. 192 #102845; Sponge Daubers, Pg. 192 #102892; Snail Adhesive, Pg. 192 #104332; Stampin' Dimensionals, Pg. 192 #104430
Cut Very Vanilla Naturals CS 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and score at 4-1/4" to form the card base. Cut Soft Suede 4" x 5-1/4" for the card front.
Cut the four In Colors CS 1-1/4" x 2". Line them up as shown and tape across all of the strips. I wanted to make two cards so I cut the strips 1-1/4" x 4" and taped at the top and bottom. Then I cut down the center.
Dust the CS with the Embossing Buddy and use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the Lovely as a Tree image across the strips. Load the stamp up with VersaMark and then Chocolate Chip ink and stamp the image. Heat emboss the image.
Attach the tree image and tag to the Soft Suede card front with Snail.
Use the Paper Piercing Tool to pierce holes to fasten the button to card front with gold cord.
Stamp the oak leaf on Autumn Meadows paper with VersaMark. Apply Gold Embossing Powder and heat emboss. Squeeze the inkpads to deposit some of the ink on the inside lid. Pick up some of the color with the Blender Pen and fill in some of the lines on the leaf.
Stamp the acorns on Dusty Durango or a scrap of Really Rust and shade in with the Chocolate Chip and Dusty Durango. I used Really Rust to give it a little more contrast with the Dusty Durango ink.
Cut out the images with paper snips and attach to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial.
Thanks for stopping by.
