The Autumn Leaves Bundle has been a fabulous Fall and Thanksgiving “go to” for me. But I love the stamped images so much I had to carry it over for a Fall Birthday.
The Leaves are the star of this card in my opinion. I actually did not use the Autumn Leaves stamp set, only the Autumn Leaves Dies were used. Two of the little oak leaves were die cut from Copper Clay card stock. I really love the detail the little dies have included. And then a large leaf was cut from Gold Foil paper. It really helps the gold in the papers to pop!
The sentiment layer is also cut using the sentiment die from the Autumn Leaves Dies. This shape is great for so many of the SU sentiments. And there is also one that is more square with similar details included. The sentiment itself is from the Translucent Florals stamp set. It is a simple and bold Happy Birthday.
The unusual color I pulled from the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper is Moody Mauve. I was surprised at how well I like this color here. And yes, I am sad to say the All About Autumn Designer Series Paper is gone for good. But as popular as it was, I am sure several of you have it to still use. And if not, there are lots of gorgeous DSP available that could be used with this layout.
The layout I used is one I came up with when looking through the DSP. I chose different papers to showcase and ended with these three and the layout. They are all from the DSP pack. Pairing the Crumb Cake and Moody Mauve was from looking at what seemed to be the dominant colors.
The gold foil leaf was a surprisingly good choice to pop! Next came the placement of the two little leaves and they needed something to hold them together. The Bakers Twine was great for this. I made a double bow to stand out a little more. Then the Adhesive Backed Speckled Dots were scattered around the sentiment. And yes, they are gone as well.
