Fall Wheat


Soft Suede cardstock is a rich color that has to be seen in a card to truly appreciate its splendor.  I was so pleasantly pleased with the results of this card.  I wanted to use this particular pattern from the Autumn Traditions DSP because I haven’t seen it used very often on other blogs.   This color palate would make a fitting masculine card for any occasion.  

The base of the card is Always Artichoke.  Set this aside. Texturize a piece of Soft Suede cardstock with your Sizzix Big Shot.  Create a horizontal group using Always Artichoke, Soft Suede and the wheat pattern DSP.  Mount this to the texturized Soft Suede.  Wrap this with the Soft Suede ribbon and tie a simple knot.  Using the mat pack and paper piercer for placement, attach the Always Artichoke brads in the lower right corner for balance.
For the vertical unit, stamp a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with the wheat stamp from the Autumn Days stamp set using Soft Suede classic ink.   With Always Artichoke and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, ink up the happy thanksgiving stamp from the Falling Leaves stamp set.  Give it a good huff and stamp the image next to the wheat. Use the stamp-a-majig if needed.  Cut a layer of Always Artichoke and Soft Suede for a double mat.  Use the Ticket Punch on all three layers then adhere together.  Mount this unit on to the card using dimensionals. 
Adhere the entire unit to the card base.
