Season of Friendship

Happy Fall everyone! It is freezing here in Erie, Pennsylvania. I woke up to a crisp 40 degrees this morning. If you can get past the cold weather, the Fall colors and smells are beautiful and inspirational. I tried to reflect the warmth and feel of Fall with the colors that I chose for this card.

The paper is a Sage Shadow print from the Autumn Vine Designer Series Paper you can find in the new Holiday Mini Catalog, as is the stamp set used-Season of Friendship. Check these out as well as all the other new stamps and supplies offered in the Holiday Mini Catalog on my website Hit the Shop link at the top of the page to place an order from the warmth of your home.

To make this card, start with a Sage Shadow card base and layers of Really Rust and Chocolate Chip mats topped off with Autumn Vine Designer Series Paper and Very Vanilla cardstock. Tie a piece of Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon around the mat layers before adhering to the card base.

The embellishment is a Sage Shadow square using the Scalloped Square Punch and Chocolate Chip using the 1-1/4 inch Square Punch. The leaves from the Season of Friendship set are stamped in More Mustard, Sage Shadow and Really Rust on Very Vanilla cardstock and trimmed down to 1-1/8 inch square each. These are adhered together and popped up on layers of Really Rust & Chocolate Chip cardstock using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stamp a sentiment to finish this card off. I used the "So Glad..." sentiment from the Best Yet stamp set which is offered as a Hostess Gift.
