Falling Leaves in Gingham

Along with the terrific new stamps and dies in the Holiday Catalog, there are still some pretty great products in the Annual Catalog for Fall crafting.  My card today features the small leaf die from the Seasonal Layers dies.  The Colorful Seasons stamp set coordinates with these.  You’ll find the stamps on page 56 and the dies on page 195 of the Annual Catalog.

Here’s the Details… 

Materials & Measurements

  • Whisper White Thick card base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4″
  • Come to Gather DSP: cut at 5 1/2″ x 2 1/4″
  • Early Espresso card stock:  cut 1/8″ x 5 1/2″ strip, 7/8″ x 2 5/8″ strip for sentiment mat, 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside mat
  • Whisper White card stock: 3/4″ x 2 5/8″ strip for sentiment, 3 3/4″ x 5″ for inside sentiment
  • Regals 6 x 6 DSP Gingham Pattern in Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry:  1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ squares


  • Emboss card front using the Subtles Embossing folder. This folder has become such a staple for me.  It adds just enough detail to an otherwise plain card without overwhelming it.
  • Die cut four leaves from the woodgrain Come to Gather DSP panel.
  • Adhere Gingham DSP to the back of the woodgrain panel over each of the die cuts.
  • Glue panel to the left side of the embossed card front.
  • Add thin strip of Early Espresso card stock to create a border to the woodgrain.
  • Stamp sentiment, from the Painted Harvest stamp set, onto the Whisper White panel in Early Espresso ink. Painted Harvest is another tried and true set from the Annual Catalog that is just perfect for this time of year.
  • Using the straight stitched die from the Stitched Labels dies, edge this panel on top and bottom to create stitching.  This is step is totally optional.  I thought it added a little more interest to the sentiment panel.
  • Mat sentiment with Early Espresso card stock and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • The inside sentiment is also from the Painted Harvest stamp set.
  • Die cut another small leaf in the lower left corner and back it with Gingham DSP
  • I think the envelope is my favorite part of this card.  Simply die cut a few leaves on the flap and add Gingham DSP.
  • Here’s how I finished off the inside…


  • After adding the DSP, I covered the inside of the flap with a piece of Whisper White card stock. It added hardly any more bulk.
