For the month of September, I’ve been having a blast creating with the Come to Gather Suite. These products have sparked so many card ideas. Here’s one more…
This rustic style is one of my favorites. I’m always happy to see a woodgrain pattern in Designer Series Paper collections and I know it will be one that I will reach for often as it provides such a great background. The pattern on this card is from the Come to Gather DSP.
The card base is Whisper White thick card stock with a mat of Early Espresso card stock. The next layer is the woodgrain DSP. I cropped a Stitched Rectangle and glued it directly to the DSP.
After stamping the large leaf image using the Gather Together stamp set and cutting it with the Gathered Leaves dies, I used Stampin’ Blends to color them. All the colors I used are listed in the Product List at the end of this post. I mounted them on the stitched rectangle with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Linen Thread bow.
The Early Espresso banner is stamped and heat embossed with a sentiment from the Vibrant Vases stamp set. I finished the card off with a few pearls that I colored with a brown Sharpie.
The inside is embellished with another large leaf, which I stamped off 3x in Early Espresso ink. The sentiment is from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set available in the Holiday Catalog. Stamping the leaf and sentiment in the corner allows room for a personal note.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the Come to Gather Suite of products and really feel like I’ve gotten so much use from it. I also know that this will be a set that will continue to live in my collection well past this season.
FREE Come to Gather tutorials…I will be sending out 3 free tutorials all this month featuring the Come to Gather suite from the Holiday Catalog for any order of $40 or more (after tax and shipping). Each tutorial will include full color photos and clear step by step instructions for creating 3 very different cards using these products.
