Autumn Leaves, Throughout the Years, Masculine Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I was looking on the internet for a card using the "Autumn Leaves" set. I had made a card at a Stamp-a-Stack that used the leaf dies and I just had to have the bundle. Well, beyond that I had no ideas on what to do with the set. So I went hunting. I found this card on and you can see it here. I did change it a little but not much at all. You can see the original card here. The original card used Very Vanilla card stock. I used Basic White because my large flower was already made and I want to use it.

My Basic White card base opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White was cut for the front of the card. It is textured using the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. I glued it to the front of the card base.

The big leaves are stamped using Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Crushed Curry ink. The veins were stamped using Pecan Pie ink. The pieces were die cut with the matching dies in the "Autumn Leaves" bundle. When I stamped the largest leaf using Crushed Curry ink I also tapped the ends on the Cajun Craze ink pad. I wanted a little more color on the tips.

The smaller leaves were die cut using Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Crushed Curry card stock.

The words are from the "Throughout the Years" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using Pecan Pie ink. I die cut them using the die from the same "Autumn Leaves" bundle. The words on the original card were heat embossed. I just used ink.

The leaves were set in place on the front of the card. I used glue but the original card used glue dots. The words were set in place using Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I was glad I was able to use the large leaf I had in my stash. This is a great masculine card. I would like to try this again and add a pumpkin or two. I have to think on that one for a bit.

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