Create a pretty card with leftovers!

Glitter Washi Tape and Rustic Harvest DSP for a pretty Fall themed card!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a quick and easy card using a leftover strip of the Rustic Harvest DSP! When making my Joy Fold cards, I was left with a 1 ½” x 12” strip of DSP which I cut into three 1 ½” x 4” strips and paired it with the glitter washi tape to create a faux glitter background. The large banner sentiment from the Hello Harvest stamp set is heat embossed and die-cut out with the coordinating die, die-cutting another piece from cardstock to create a larger layered look, and brought back one of my favorite retired embossing folders, the Subtle 3D EF, to give the Leaf Labels a bit of texture! Since the Amber Gems coordinate with the Cajun Craze glitter washi tape, how could I not use a few of these for the card front? This lovely Fall themed card is perfect for any occasion and super easy to make!

For the card front base layer, I used a piece of Basic White cardstock to lay the strips of Cajun Craze glitter washi tape, one piece along each end and two pieces at 1 5/8” and 1 7/8” and another two pieces at 3 ¼” and 3 ¾”. I had this design leftover that I cut down from 1 ½” x 12” into three 1 ½” x 4” that I adhered to the cardstock over the glitter washi tape. I first adhered each end piece and then adhered the middle piece:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. Heat emboss the sentiment on Mossy Meadow cardstock with white embossing powder and use the coordinating die to die-cut out.

2. Use the die from above to die-cut another piece out of Basic Black cardstock and cut in half, this will be layered under the above piece.

3. Use two of the Leaf Labels and emboss them with the Subtle 3D EF (retired).

4. You will need three of the Amber Gems, not pictured.

To assemble, I first adhered the embossed Leaf Labels as shown, used dimensionals to adhere the layered die-cut sentiment, and placed the Amber Gems as shown. This completed piece is adhered to a Mossy Meadow cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and use the leaf stamp to stamp along the bottom in Crushed Curry, Merry Merlot, and Mossy Meadow inks:

For the coordinating Basic White Medium Envelope, I used the leaf stamp again to stamp one of each in Crushed Curry, Merry Merlot, and Mossy Meadow inks:

What a pretty Fall themed card with lots of sparkle and glimmer! This is an easy way to use up those scraps of DSP that you may not normally do anything with! Another tip: if you do not have the glitter washi tape you can emboss the cardstock card base instead!!

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!
