Rooted in Nature Leaf Fall Doily
P retty fall card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Cajun Craze Cardstock at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2"
- 3-1/8" x 4-3/8" from Rich Razzleberry Cardstock
- 3" x 4-1/4" of Grapefruit Grove linen weave design from Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper
- scrap of Cajun Craze Cardstock at least 1-1/2" wide
- scrap of Whisper White Cardstock at least 1-1/4" wide
Place the front flap of the Cajun Craze card into the Seaside Embossing Folder. Let the bottom edge of the folder go over the score line on the card by a teeny, tiny bit to make sure you emboss the entire front flap. Leave the back flap hanging out of the folder. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
Important: Make sure that the embossing folder does NOT hang over the edge of the platform or it will catch on the sides of the Big Shot and damage the folder and/or Big Shot.
Place the piece of Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper on top of some Grid Paper to protect your work surface as you stamp.
Mount the large, single, veined leaf image from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Cajun Craze Ink Pad. Stamp it randomly around the designer paper. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time. Rotate the direction of the stamp, let some of the images go off the edges of the designer paper, and let some of the images overlap.
Mount the small, single, veined leaf image from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Rich Razzleberry Ink Pad. Stamp it randomly around the designer paper. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time. Rotate the direction of the stamp, let some of the images go off the edges of the designer paper, and let some of the images overlap.
Adhere the stamped designer paper to the Rich Razzleberry rectangle and then to the front of the card in the center.
Pick out a Colored Doily. It doesn't really matter what color the doily is on the one side as you are going to be using the white side anyway.
Use a tiny dab of SNAIL in the center of the doily (on the colored side) to adhere the doily to the card front with the white side showing so the doily overlaps the right edge of the matted designer paper by about 1/2" and the top of the doily is even with the top of the designer paper.
Mount the "Just For You" sentiment from the Rooted In Nature Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Rich Razzleberry Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the scrap of white cardstock.
Unlock the 1" Circle Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch.
Unlock the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. Slide the scrap of Cajun Craze Cardstock into the punch and punch.
Use a Stampin' Dimensional to adhere the sentiment circle to the center of the Cajun Craze circle.
Adhere the matted sentiment circle to the center of the doily on the card front.
Pick out a single leaf in either copper or silver from the Leaves Trinkets.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the leaf trinket to the card front so the stem is tucked under the sentiment circle on the bottom left and the leaf points towards the bottom left corner of the card.
Cut an 8" piece of 1/4" Copper Trim.
Tie a small bow in the center of the copper trim. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow to the bottom left of the sentiment circle so it is just above the leaf stem.
