Welcome! It's finally starting to cool off here, so I'm beginning to think about Fall stamping. Of course it helps to have some pretty new Fall stamps as well! Today I am am using a couple of new Amy Tedder Release stamps from JustRite Papercrafts, Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves and Antique Autumn Tags One. I also used the Fragrant Garden Background Stamp and the Antique Tags One dies.
I especially love the leaves because of the script print in them.
For the inside I used both leaves and a sentiment from the Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves set. The ribbon slides on and off the card to keep it shut.
I knew I would get some questions about how to create the card base if I didn't explain, so I took pictures as I went. Using a Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven, I cut both ends long enough to slightly overlap one another. I cut the card base (shown on the left above) to 5-1/2" tall (same as the Grand Labels Eleven die template that I had used), by 5-1/4". Next I scored 1/2" in from both sides. (I left my Scor-Pal scoring tool on one of the fold lines so that you can see what I mean.)
To open the card you have to slip off the tied ribbon that is holding it shut. I kept the foam tape up high enough under the leaves that the ribbon would slide into place nicely. Other Spellbinders die template sets that I used were the new A-2 Fancy Postage Stamps and A-2 Matting Basics B, as well as the custom JustRite Antique Tags One dies. For the card front, I stamped on Rustic Cream cardstock and then colored between the leaves with a Copic E81 marker to emphasize the leaf shapes.
That's it for today. If you'd like to see more from JustRite's Amy Tedder line, be sure to visit the following blogs. Thanks for visiting!
