Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Thank You Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month we are all creating projects with a “fall frenzy” theme and I’m featuring the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set bundle for my project.

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves Thank You Card

My fall themed card was inspired by Just Us Girls #596.

I started by stamping the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Sahara Sand ink randomly across a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Then I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and I adhered it to the front of a Thick Very Vanilla card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Cabin stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders and then heat embossed it.  I cut around the sentiment with one of the Tasteful Labels Dies and then adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut panels of all three of the colors from the Brushed Metallic Cardstock with Intricate Leaves Dies.  I tied the die cuts together with Linen Thread and then adhered them to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added two of the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to finish the card front.

I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock to finish the inside of the card.
