Truly Grateful

Truly Grateful Autumn Card  #cardmaking #papercrafts #StampinUp #Stampingville

Happy Fall, Y'all.

Now that fall is officially here, it's time to really put those autumn colors (and papers) to use. Today's card mixes a fall theme with trendy gold embossing and stunning patterned paper from the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper collection.

The gold embossing on Early Espresso Core'dinations cardstock is created using the background stamp from the Truly Grateful stamp set. I don't know about you, but to me the stamp looks like old planks of wood arranged in a chevron pattern. It's so interesting and has tons of possibilities - as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it!

Tucked behind the embossed panel is the gorgeous paper, cut using the Adorning Accents Edgelits and embossed with the coordinating Adorning Accents Embossing Folder.

I love the look of the Burlap Ribbon and it was a no-brainer for this card. Obviously.

I've become somewhat of an expert now at fussy cutting the wheat. That happens when you continually stamp and cut pieces for projects that end up in the "fail" pile. I'm so over it. Hello, acorn!
