Beautiful Bouquet, Toil & Trouble, Masculine Fall Birthday Crd

Today I thought it would be a nice change to make something different with the "Toil & Trouble" Designer Series Paper (DSP) instead of a Halloween card.  Fall birthday cards are nice and they most often lean towards the masculine side.  This card could also be a fall thank you or Thanksgiving card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that are the upper left and bottom right corner pieces.  I used a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Early Espresso card stock and I cut it from the right tip to the left side. Mark the left side 3-1/8" and cut from the tip to the mark.  I took the other end and used it as a template for the bottom corner.

I cut the DSP 3-3/4" x 5".  I made a mark on the side at 3" and I cut from the tip to the mark.  Again I used the cut piece as a template for the bottom piece.  I taped the DSP to the Early Espresso card stock and then I taped those pieces in place on the front of the card.

I took a scrap piece of Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie and using the middle two stitched squares I die cut the frames.  I also used the smaller one to cut a piece of Whisper White card stock so I could set it in the middle with the greetings on.  

I slipped the frames into each other and glued them where they met.  I stamped the words on the Whisper White piece using Early Espresso ink. The words are from the "Beautiful Bouquet" set.  I glued the word piece on but there wasn't a lot of places to add glue so when I was adding the Dimensionals, I made sure they crossed over to the word piece to help hold it in place.  I set the word frames in place on the card and that was it.  Pretty easy and quick AND it wasn't a Halloween card!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
