Intricate Leaves Autumn Card by Secrets To Stamping

Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge starts today. Firstly, the only requirement for this challenge is that you use dies – easy, right? I have such a difficult time making cards without them now. For my card today, I made an autumn card, using the Intricate Leaves dies that coordinate with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set.

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the deadline of October 30th at 10:00 PM EDT!

My secrets to making this Quiet Meadow project

  • Firstly, the card base started with Soft Succulent cardstock, cut at 9″ by 6-1/4″ and scored in half at 4-1/2.”
  • After that, I cut Sahara Sand cardstock with the Ornate Frames die. Then, I cut the Peaceful Prints designer paper to layer on top and layered both onto white cardstock.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Once the card base was complete, I cut out the leaf from the Intricate Leaves dies. Then, I distressed it a bit with ink spots. After that, I cut the the background die from Hippo & Friends in Sahara Sand.
  • Secondly, I stamped the sentiment from Sparkle of the Season and cropped it out with the Double Oval Punch and layered it onto the scallop layer in Soft Succulent.
  • Then, I layered it onto two of the branches in Sahara Sand cardstock with dimensionals.
  • Before I popped up the leaf panel, I adhered some linen thread underneath.
  • Finally, I added some Brushed Metallic Dots for the always necessary bling.

I’m sharing my card with these challenges:
