Beauty of the Earth Thanks Card. Crafty Collaborations Autumn Themed Blog Hop. September 2021

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today I'm taking part in an Autumn Themed Blog Hop with the Crafty Collaborations ladies.

I struggled to get off the starting blocks with this one as I don't have any super obvious autumn themed stamp sets,  but by pulling various items from my stash including punches and pretty DSP and some autumnal colours I got there!


Cinnamon CIder Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4" scored at 5 7/8"

Mossy Meadow Card Stock

1pc - 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"


Cajun Craze Card Stock

1pc - 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"


Vellum Card Stock


Beauty of the Earth DSP

1pc - 1 3/8" x 1 3/8" 



 Fold the Cinnamon Cider card Stock along the score line and add the basic white panel to the inside.

Take the piece of Mossy Meadow card srock and place one of the shorter ends into the Mossy Moments embossing folder and then emboss using your Cut and Emboss machine. This folder is a thin one so will only go approx half way down the card. Repeat the process for the opposite end.

Add this panel to the card front.

Now, get all the following elements ready.

- Punch out the Following...

1) A handful of leaves using the Symmetrical Leaf Punch in Cinnamon Cider, Mossy Meadow, Early Espresso and Vellum. 

2) two vellum shapes from the tailored tag Punch

 - Cut out the following...

1) one strip of DSP approx 1/2" x 2 1/2"

2) one thicker strip of DSP approx 1", then using your snips create deep banner tails.

 - Layer the DSP square to the Cajun Craze square

 - stamp the sentiment from Biggest Wish onto a scrap of basic white in cajun Craze ink and fussy cut.

Now, it's time to use all these elements to build the cluster. There was no rhyme or reason or planning really as to position- I just made sure that my vellum tag punch outs when down first, just so I could be sure to cover any glue. Then i just played around with the placement adding to it until I felt it was done.

I hope you liked my card today, please take a look at the list below and continue through to take a look at some more awesome Autumn inspiration.
