I started by die-cutting every leaf and and acorn on the Autumn Accents Bigz Die. All at one time. How fun to mix and match the different patterns in the Stampin' Up! Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper. It is so easy when you know all the colors will coordinate.
There was more Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cut Machine action to come for this handmade fall card. In Very Vanilla Card Stock I die-cut the largest of the Framelits from the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies.
The leaves were attached at the bottom with SNAIL Adhesive, fanned out and covering the entire bottom of the Very Vanilla die-cut. Did not want any of the die-cut to be peeking out. The maple and oak leaves are nice and large making it effortless to do
Did you notice the decorative paper-piercing that follows all the curves just so perfectly? Again, quick and easy with the coordinating Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack template. That simple touch added a great touch to my card.
The die-cut leaves and pretty frame are all resting on a brown piece of bark. The bark was made with the so cool Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I especially love those two used together. The Early Espresso Card Stock underlying colors peeks out just the right amount through the embossed lines. Looks like real bark without needing to do any sanding.
We now know the Autumn Accents Bigz Die and Woodgrain Embossing Folder will be available to purchase after the 2012 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog ends on January 2, 2013. They will be available at least through May 31, 2013. After that is unknown.
With Thanksgiving just a little over a week away, it is almost, if not, too late to be ordering Fall stamping supplies. But, if you like the card I made with the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper and Early Espresso Core'dinations Card Stock, you do need to get those ordered before January 2, 2013. They are not included in the list of Holiday Catalog products that will be available for an extended period of time.
