Hi Stampers, welcome back for another Stamping Friends Blog Hop. My card today is a buckle fold card using the Gather Together stamp set and the Gathered Leaves Dies. For today’s hop we are celebrating Autumn / Fall. There are many fun and create ideas on our hop, so don’t miss any. I have provided a blog hop line up below to help you see them all.
My card is CASEd from fellow demo, Cindy Brumbaugh, she made a similar card in 2019. I’ve updated it using products from the 2020 catalogs. The card base is 8-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″. I decorated the front of the card with a 2-3/4″ x 4″ layer of Brushed Metallic cardstock, followed by a 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″ layer of Plaid Tidings DSP.
Stampin’ Tip: Cut the leaves out of the center of the Brushed Metallic cardstock before adhering it to the card. After you adhere the DSP, you won’t be able to tell and it helps you get the most out of your product.
Next, I used the classic label punch to punch a slot in the center of the card front. (This will be where the belt will tuck into.) The focal point, of the leaves, is assembled and glued onto a 2-1/4″ circle. Then the circle is adhered to the front of the card by using Stampin’ Seal on the left side of the “slot” only. (So the belt can tuck underneath.)
The largest leaf, from the Gather Together stamp set, was stamped onto a 3″ square of Merry Merlot CS in Merry Merlot ink and die cut using the Gathered Leaves Dies. The metallic leaves are die cut (and embossed at the same time) using the smaller leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies. The smaller sprig of leaves, also die cut from the Brushed Metallic CS, is from the Detailed Bands Dies.
The “belt” for the card is a 5-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ strip of Merry Merlot CS with a 5-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ strip of the Plaid Tidings DSP adhered to the top. This strip is then scored 1/2″ from the right. The 1/2″ is adhered to the backside of the inside layer before it is adhered to the card. I used the Gather Together stamp set to stamp the pumpkins and the greeting above and below the “belt” on the inside layer. I’m thrilled with how it came out, I hope you are too!
