Autumn Leaves, Darling Details, Masculine Fall Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a masculine/fall birthday card to share with you. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Very Vanilla card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pecan Pie card stock for the top layer. Then a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla card stock was cut for the layer on top of the Pecan Pie piece. I textured this layer using "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued it to the Pecan Pie piece. 

Next I took out my "Deckled Rectangle" dies and used the two smallest ones. One was for the Pecan Pie piece (I cut two) and one was for the Very Vanilla piece (I cut two). I took one of those Very Vanilla deckled edge pieces and textured it using the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. I glued that to one of the deckled Pecan Pie pieces. The other Very Vanilla deckled edge piece was stamped using the words from the "Darling Details" set and Pecan Pie ink. I taped that layer to the other deckled edge Pecan Pie piece. 

Then I die cut the leaves from the "Autumn Leaves" bundle. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Oxidized Copper" 12" x 12" package. It's pretty DSP but it's only got two sheets of two designs in the package. And these are printed on only one side. I've been using them sparingly but I'm going to use them a bit more because I do not what to have more retired papers to my stash in a few months. I have enough retired papers stacking up as it is. Anyway, I had die cut a large leaf with the one paper with blues in it and two of the copper paper.

That's it for the prep work. Now let's assemble the card. The first think I did was I glued the word piece in place about 3/8" from the left edge of the Pecan Pie layer and 1" from the top of that same layer. 

One of the smaller leaves were added using glue. 

The textured deckled layered piece was set in place next. It's about 3/4" from the top Pecan Pie edge and 3/8" from the right edge of that same layer.

The large leave was then glued in place and the smaller one was added using Dimensionals.  And the card was done. 

This was a very fun and quick card to make. I like this DSP and I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. My goal was to make a masculine birthday card and that's what I got. 

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's masculine birthday card,

Your card is so perfect for a masculine card and for Fall! I really debated about getting that Oxidized special paper but decided against it because it was only two sheets for that amount of $. It truly adds a lot to the card though. Those are two of my favorite embossing folders that you used.
