Warm & cozy thoughts!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a sweet encouragement card featuring the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the Nature’s Roots Dies! I thought it would be fun to create a fall themed card with products from the annual catalog! Not all fall themed cards are for Thanksgiving, but keeping with the fall season, you too can make beautiful cards to mail or hand deliver for any reason!

The base layer is this design from the In Good Taste DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ½”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Cut a 1 ¼” x 5 ¼” piece of Early Espresso cardstock and emboss with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

2. Cut a 1 ¾” x 4” piece of Brushed Copper Metallic cardstock and emboss with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

3. Cut two pieces of the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim about 4 ¼” (or so), they need to be slightly longer than the embossed Brushed Copper Metallic cardstock.

4. Use the large leaf emboss and cutting dies from Nature’s Roots Dies to cut from Cinnamon Cider cardstock and spritz with an alcohol and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mix in a Stampin’ Spritzer.

5. Use the small leaf emboss and cutting dies from Nature’s Roots Dies to cut from Bumblebee and Early Espresso cardstocks and spritz with an alcohol and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint minx in a Stampin’ Spritzer.

6. Stamp the block sentiment stamp from Rooted in Nature in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and die-cut with the third smallest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

The embossed Early Espresso cardstock will be adhered to the middle of the DSP base layer, use adhesive along the top and bottom edge of the embossed metallic cardstock to adhere the scalloped ribbon, trimming off the excess, and use dimensionals to adhere this piece spaced evenly over the embossed Early Espresso cardstock:

The embossed die-cut leaves are adhered to the embossed brushed metallic cardstock, the Cinnamon Cider leaf in the middle, the sentiment is adhered with dimensionals over the Cinnamon Cider leaf, and this completed piece is adhered to a Cinnamon Cider cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, adhere the ¾” x 4” piece of DSP along the side of the cardstock, and stamp the sentiment from Rooted in Nature in Early Espresso ink:

I just love this sweet and encouraging fall themed card! Adding the ribbon along the edge of the embossed metallic cardstock just gives it that soft look! Great alternative way to use your ribbon, don’t you think?

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
