Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn! Autumn officially begins tomorrow and I have an easy fun fold card to share with you as we welcome a new season. Here is my Autumn card for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.
Here’s this week’s challenge board.
I chose elements going across the top row: metallic, glow, and autumn colors. I tried to get a photo so you could see the “glow”. I used a battery tea light in the back which shines through the vellum. You could easily place this near a light and get the same effect.
This fun fold card measures 4 1/4 x 8 and is scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, 6 3/4. I love the mix of fall colors in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.
The DSP strips on each side measure 1 x 4 and the center piece measures 2 3/4 x 4. I adhered the DSP to the cardstock then used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the leaf out through both layers. I sponged a piece of vellum using Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Lemon Lime Twist inks. I adhered the vellum to the back of the card using glue dots. (You can see in the photo above how I framed the back of the vellum using the Layering Squares Framelits to give it finished look.)
I am thrilled Stampin’ Up brought back the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets! What a difference it makes in adhering the detailed dies. I adhered a piece of Copper Metallic Foil to the Multipurpose Adhesive before cutting it with out with the detailed leaf die. It was so easy to just peel the backing and adhere to the vellum inside the framelit. If you haven’t tried the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets you need to put them on your next order…they are a must have for anyone who has dies!
I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. I flagged the end and added a small banner in copper foil. I wrapped the Copper Trim and tied a bow on the end. The banner is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
