T he Gilded Autumn papers work for so many types of cards. The colors and paper prints are very versatile. I used some of the papers to make a sympathy card.
Card Base: Cut Early Espresso 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut Cajun Craze paper 4 X 5 1/4
Card Front: Cut print paper 3 7/8 X 5 ⅛
Use Tasteful Labels to cut labels for the front of the card. Cut smaller label from Very Vanilla and larger label from print paper in Gilded Autumn paper pack (I used crumb cake with Early Espresso splatters). See card picture for labels I used.
Stamp sentiment with Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla label.
Punch 2 Cajun Craze sprigs with Springs punch.
Attach larger label to lower edge of card front with ¾ inch of left side of label over edge of card side. Trim label even with edge of card.
Attach card front to Cajun Craze card mat. Attach these to the card base.
Attach the 2 Cajun Craze sprigs to the right side of the label. Use dimensionals to attach Stamped vanilla label over the ends of the sprigs on larger label.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. Wasn’t that easy? For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Whisper White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
