I have been working on a Skinny card for a card swap.  It has been very difficult getting the layout I want.  There have been some good results and some not so good ones.  Today is one of the good results that I liked but decided not to use in the swap.  So I thought I would share it with you.


Stampin' Up!, Gorgeous Leaves, Pretty Pumpkins, Jackie Beers



There are two really awesome stamp sets used on this card.  The first is the Pretty Pumpkins stamps.  This trio of pumpkins is my favorite from that set.  And it comes as a Bundle, I just didn’t use the dies.  The second stamp set is the Gorgeous Leaves.  It is also a Bundle, and I did use two of the Dies.

I love how well these two stamp sets work together.  Fall leaves and pumpkins are like Peanut Butter and Jelly!  They just go together.  The sentiment is such a sweet one and is from the Pretty Pumpkin stamp set. I just love it.

Colors and Finishes

Normally I would say Paper instead of Color, but I did not use any Designer Series Paper on this card.  That is very unusual for me.  I did choose some of my favorites of the colors I think of for Fall.  They are Cinnamon Cider and Soft Succulent for the card base and layer.

The stamped leaves are more of the great Fall colors.  They are Merry Merlot, Cinnamon Cider with some speckles of Pale Papaya.

To finish the card I went to the Annual Catalog for some ribbon.  It is from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo.  The gingham is actually Just Jade instead of Soft Succulent, but the color matches very well.  The final touch was two die cut leaves from Merry Merlot cardstock.  These dies are so intricate (The name of the dies are Intricate Leaves!) that it really pops against the white cardstock.
