Fall Season Wreath - Stampin' Up! Season Swirl Dies - Paper Players 555

  The Paper Players are back at it today!  Laurie has given a us fun sketch to try out!  I have to admit the tilted layer gave me some pause but several ideas later I got it done!

   I went with a fall theme as before we know it we'll be full on Christmas card making and I wanted to get a few autumn cards made and added to the stash before it was too late!

  This one starts with a Crumb Cake base that has been lightly sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake ink.  Next is a layer of Harvest Meadow DSP.

  I made the tilted frame with the Stitched Rectangle dies and then backed it with a piece of Basic White that is embossed with the Bark embossing folder.  I lightly brushed some Crumb Cake ink on the ridges to tone down the brightness.  Then I popped it up with dimensionals.

  The wreath is cut out of Crumb Cake cardstock using the new Season Swirls dies. One of the dies cuts extra leaves so I used that for the Bumblebee leaves and then cut a second wreath from Calypso Coral and snipped the leaves off and adhered them to the Crumb Cake wreath to fill it out a bit.

  Using the carryover set, Banner Year I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight onto Calypso Coral cardstock then flagged the end.  I added a few extra leaves to one end and then popped it with dimensionals.

  The final touch is a little linen thread bow.

  Check out all the great inspiration from the Paper Players Design Team and then add your creation to the gallery!

  4. Amanda, As soon as I saw your card, I went in and rummaged through my die cuts to see if I had anything similar to this so I could replicate it. I think I found just the thing! Stay tuned! Thanks for inspiring me today and every day!

  5. I love the gorgeous autumn colours with a pop of bright blue for good measure Amanda and the texture adds lovely interest behind your wreath of swirling autumn leaves. I've been trying to resist this set but I think your card might have tipped me over the edge! Love it!
