Autumn Leaves, Heartfelt Hexagon, Masculine or Fall Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a quick and easy 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 Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock for the layer. And the top Basic White layer was cut at 3-7/8" x 5-1/8". I taped it on the front of the card.

I took the 1-5/8" die from the "Layering Circles" die set and cut a circle from a scrap piece of card stock. I used the circle as a stencil for the top layer. For my circles I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive ink. Using my Blending Brush I scrubbed in the color for each circle.

Once the circles were done I textured the piece using the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. Then I glued the piece to the front of the card. 

I cut three leaves using the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Oxidized Copper 12" x 12" package. The dies are from the "Autumn Leaves" bundle. I took one leaf and scrubbed on some Old Olive and I took another leaf and scrubbed on some Pumpkin Pie ink. I just wanted them to have a little bit more color variation. I set them aside after wiping them off because I thought some ink may remain on the shiny copper part of the leaves.

The word piece is from the "Heartfelt Hexagon" set. I stamped the outline using Old Olive ink and the words using the Pumpkin Pie ink. I punched it out using the matching punch. The piece was set in place using Dimenisonals. 

A little glue was added to the back of each leaf and they were slipped in place under the word piece and the card was done.

Wasn't that quick and easy? I am pleased with the way it turned out. Though if I were to make another one I might cluster the leaves instead of spreading them out.

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