I know the Autumn Leaves paper is unavailable but it is returning. And this paper is so gorgeous that it can be used year round. The Autumn Leaves Bundle and all of the other Suite products are available now. So I have a really pretty card to share.
The Autumn Leaves Bundle is a wonderful one! The leaves stamped have a two step look to them, which I love. My leaves are all stamped off before stamping on the Very Vanilla card stock. I wanted a softer look for the leaves. I have also stamped on scrap one of the Blackberry Bliss leaves and the two small green leaves. Those two are connected but I cut them apart for my layout. They give a bit of dimension to the card, especially with the one hanging over a bit.
The leaves all have matching dies. There are both solid and embossed dies for each leaf. And that great sentiment layer is one of the dies as well. I really like the indented corners and stitching around the edge.
Additional Suite Products
This card uses all products in the suite with the exception of the Oxidized Copper Specialty paper. I did use a small strip of the DSP, but you could use any color matching paper there. The stamped leaves panel was embossed using the Distressed Tile 3D Embossing Folder. I love all of the texture of this embossing folder! We have had tile products before but I have to say that this is by far my favorite.
The other products from the suite I used are the Adhesive Backed Speckled Dots. There is a single one of the green on the sentiment layer. There was so much color and texture everywhere already, but that sentiment needed a touch of bling. And the final item is the Copper & Natural Ribbon Combo. I only used the copper ribbon. It is zigzagged behind the sentiment. The ribbon is very easy to work with and adds a great shine and color.
The paper choices were a problem because there were too many choices! I went with Blackberry Bliss as the card base. I love the deep purple leaves in Fall so I naturally gravitated to that color. It pairs great wit the Copper Clay layers and the touch of the Old Olive of the DSP strip.
The card is a little different from the normal. It is 5 1/2 X 7 1/2 and still scored at 4 1/4. This leaves the 1″ section on the right side for the strip of DSP. And it makes for a pop of pretty DSP without having to use a lot of it. I have a large card club and to only use a strip allows me to spread my paper a bit further. The same may apply when doing multiples of a card!
