Hello Fall Card (Unite & Excite Swap Card)

Stampin' Up!'s "Unite and Excite" event in September was great fun -- lots of inspiration to be found there!  If I'm able to get my photos large enough where you would actually be able to see good images of the cards on the display boards, I'll share those with you.  Otherwise, I'll try to pick a few here and there that most impressed me.

In the meantime, here are the instructions formy swap card.

Click on image for a closer look.

(Unless otherwise indicated, SNAIL Adhesive used throughout.)

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Sahara Sand card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card.

2. Use Sahara Sand ink to stamp Hardwood image on front of card.

3. Use Memento Ink to stamp fruit bowl (from Giggle Greetings) on scrap of Whisper White card stock; color with alcohol markers and then carefully cut out image.

4. Use Mossy Meadow stampin' pad to stamp leaves (from For All Things) on 3" x 2-1/4" Whisper White card stock; adhere fruit bowl over leaves.  Adhere card stock to front of card.

5. Use Sahara Sand ink to stamp Hardwood image on Coastal Cabana card stock (both 3-1/4" x 2-1/2" and strips*).  Use Big Shot and 2" x 2" Square Framelits Die to cut window from center of card stock.  Use Two-Way Glue Pen or Tombow Liquid Glue to adhere strips vertically and horizontally behind window (just a tiny dot of glue at each end of each strip is enough to hold the strips in place).  Adhere Window Sheet to back of Coastal Cabana card stock over strips.  Line up window over fruit bowl/leaves so they show through window.  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.

6. Stamp "hello Fall!" image on scrap of Whisper White card stock; punch out with Oval Punch; scrap edges across Sahara Sand stampin' pad to add shading around edges.  Adhere to window with Two-Way Glue Pen or a couple dots of Tombow Liquid Glue.

7. Use Big Shot and Fun Fall Framelits Die to make leaves from yellow and orange sections of DSP.  Adhere randomly on front of card.

Happy Fall to you!!!!  Hope you enjoy making this card!
