This week's sketch is a square card and you know how much I LOVE square cards!
I decided to pair two items from the Holiday Mini Catalog -- the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper and the Autumn Accents Leaf Die. I used some gorgeous fall jewel-tone colors -- Lucky Limeaide, Cajun Craze, Island Indigo, More Mustard and Raspberry Ripple -- aren't they just beautiful together!
I embossed each leaf diecut with a different Embossing Folder and the Big Shot -- the Fancy Fan, Perfect Polka Dots and Woodgrain Textured Embossing Folders. Other supplies used include the 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Raspberry Ripple and Stampin' Dimensionals. I inked the edges of the card and the leaf diecuts with Early Espresso Ink.
Speaking of Dimensionals, here are some measurements for this card:
- Layer One -- Raspberry Ripple Cardstock cut at 5.25 x 10.5", scored and folded to make the Card Base.
- Layer Two -- More Mustard Cardstock cut at 5" square.
- Layer Three -- DSP cut at 2 x 5" -- attach ribbon across the "seam" -- add Leaf diecuts, bow and sentiment from the Fabulous Phrases Stamp Set.
- Inside of Card -- (oops, forgot to get a picture) -- Very Vanilla Cardstock cut at 5" square -- decorate with a 1" strip of DSP, ribbon and a leaf die cut (you can see a peek in this side view).
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I offered you a little inspiration for your weekend stamping projects! Speaking of inspiration, don't forget to check out the other Operator Projects at Stamping 411!
