Welcome to our West Coast Creators team blog hop! This month’s theme is anything goes…which really puts our creative juices to test! Being in Vancouver, we are starting to see the seasons change to Fall…leaves changing colours and start to fall, cooler weather and thoughts of Thanksgiving!
So, I chose to work with the beautiful Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper (#153520) and Love of Leaves Bundle (#155195). Now let me start saying, that I absolutely love this stamp set / die bundle. It is so versatile and I have used it over and over again. The detailed stamping and embossed stitching is to-die-for!
I wanted to create a project that highlights the usage of DSP. I don’t know about you, but I tend to have lots of DSP leftover and have become a bit of a “DSP hoarder”. Finding projects that leverages and shows off the DSP, is something that I have a hard time with. So, this pocket card project was a perfect for the job!
The pocket piece is made with the Gilded Autumn DSP. The belly band is made with Early Espresso card stock (#119686) and Brushed Metallic foil (#153524). It was then decorated with the stamped and embossed leaves from the Love of Leaves bundle in Early Espresso and Crumb Cake ink. A small stitched circle of the matching DSP was also used.
The inside notecard was made with an Early Espresso mat, followed by a Crumb Cake mat (#120953), followed by Very Vanilla cardstock (#101650). The leaves again, were stamped and embossed using the bundle. Finally, a hole punch wrapped in some Forever Greenery ribbon (#152475) to top it off.
