Autumn is almost here, and today’s project is a thank you card that’s all about the season. I used the Beautiful Autumn stamp set and Stitched So Sweetly Dies to create this simple fun fold card. I also made a coordinating little lip balm gift box, which I’ll share with you in a couple days (you can see a sneak peek of it below.)

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″ and at 7-1/2″
  • Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 3″ x 5-1/4″ (speckled)
  • speckled DSP layer cut to 1″ x 5-1/4″
  • herringbone pattern DSP layer cut to 5-1/4″ tall by 4 pattern stripes wide (just over 3/4″)
  • acorn/leaf pattern DSP layer cut to 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Beautiful Autumn stamp set:

  • sentiment in Versamark ink onto a scrap of Early Espresso CS, then heat embossed in gold
  • acorn in Early Espresso ink onto the bottom left corner of the Very Vanilla CS

Cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies:

  • sentiment

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the folds in the card base with a Bone Folder, folding the 1″ section back onto the card front
  • larger speckled DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base (left side and under the folded over flap)
  • acorn/leaf DSP layer glued onto the speckled DSP layer
  • herringbone DSP layer glued onto the flap of the card base
  • flap glued down onto the DSP layers
  • sentiment glued onto the flap and DSP layers, but not the small part hanging off the right side
  • 1″ speckled DSP strip glued onto the right side of the Very Vanilla CS
  • Very Vanilla CS glued onto the inside of the card base
  • If you prefer, you can skip gluing down the flap, and then only glue the sentiment to the flap, leaving the rest loose. I just felt the card would be easier to photograph if I glued them down.
