Autumn Leaves, Throughout The Year, Masculine Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fall masculine birthday card to share with you. Please read on to see how this quick card was made.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It was cut in half on the short 8-1/2" side so once it's cut it measures 4-1/4" x 11".  It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pecan Pie card stock.  Before taping it to the card base I die cut the rectangle layer from the "Deckled Rectangles" set. I used the second smallest one.

A 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Oxidized Copper" 12" x 12" package on top of the Pecan Pie layer.

The words are from the "Throughout the Year" set and were stamped using Pecan Pie ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them with the smallest Deckled Rectangle die. I taped the words to the Pecan Pie deckled layer. Then that piece was taped and glued to the front of the card. I wasn't sure if tape would hold well over the gold foil so I decided to add tape to the top and bottom and glue in the middle. I got it on a little crooked and it was very easy to remove so I'm assuming it doesn't stick well or I didn't press down hard enough. But I do know it's not going anywhere. 

The leaf is from the "Layering Leaves" set and were stamped using Crushed Curry ink first. Then I took my Cajun Craze cube ink pad and lightly touched the edges and tips of the leaves. Then I took the vein image, inked it up with Pecan Pie ink and stamped off once and then stamped off on the leaf. I die cut the leaf with the matching die from the bundle. It's too bad that the stem isn't included in the leaf die cut. But I probably would have cut it off for this layout anyway. So I guess it worked out, huh?  LOL The leaf was set in place using Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a very fun, quick and easy card to make. I do like how it turned out and I really like that DSP!

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