Life is better with friends and family…

Especially during this extended period of social distancing we are experiencing with the COVID pandemic. Who would have believed we’d still be doing this almost 8 months later? I’ve been working on feel good cards to send out to friends I haven’t been able to get together with for a while. Today’s card was CASEd from the Mini catalog on page 44. The catalog shows a square card, but I turned mine into a regular sized card.

I started with a Crumb Cake card base and dry embossed the front with the new Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. It adds a very interesting texture to the front. For the focal point, I cut a 3-1/2″” square of Cajun Craze. It’s been a while since I’ve used Cajun Craze, but it seems to be my go to color for fall cards. I cut a 3-1/4″ square in Very Vanilla to use as a base to add the 1″ squares of Gilded Autumn DSP and cardstock. Using the delightful Autumn Punch pack (used these punches to create my wreath card) I punched various leaves and acorns from Bumblebee, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede. I played around with the layout choosing different colors in different places until I was happy with the colors. I stamped my greeting in Cajun Craze (there’s that color again-LOL) and used my Banners Pick a punch. I added a Gold banner and a strip of Mint Macaron weave ribbon underneath that tag (this is retired, but use the Basket Weave ribbon in the Gilded Autumn Suite).

Here’s a picture of the card from the catalog. Just remember any time you see a square card you like, you can always turn it into a regular size card! And when you see a card you like, use it to create your own variation for a unique card.

Here’s the supplies you need to make this card:

Thanks for joining me for another fall card. I have a few more ideas I want to try out before I move on to Halloween, then Thanksgiving and Christmas-holiday cards. Oh my…it seems to soon to be thinking about Christmas, but it’s coming fast! Happy stamping!
