I love Fall cards with colorful leaves and this one is no exception. The leaves were die cut with the Seasonal Layers Framelits, which are part of the Colorful Seasons bundle and the background was embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Both techniques require the Big Shot.
The pennant was hand cut and then stamped with words from Thoughtful Banners. I chose this saying because I was making the card for someone specific and this is the message I wanted for her. When we made this card in club, most of the stampers chose sayings related to the season. Stampin' Up! has lots of great sets with sayings, so there are plenty of options.
The Gold Satin Ribbon was on the Clearance List when this was a club project. It appears to be gone now. I think the Burlap Ribbon would look good in it's place. It would give it a more rustic feel.
To shape the leaves, I folded them in half from left to right and then folded them back and forth from top to bottom, like a fan. After I opened them, I re-folded any lines that were not creased enough. You can also use your bone folder to create the "veins" of the leaves. If you use the bone folder, it will look more precise than my method.
Remember, FREE shipping on Monday, 11/27/17, so it's the perfect time to get the supplies to make this card.
