Autumn Accents Card

Hi Friends!  Tina here from the "Passport Pals" - Frenchie's other half!  Today I have a card to share with you:

I used a stamp set that hasn't seen the light of day for a while so I figured it was time to put it to use! The stamp set is called "So Sorry" and it's perfect for so many occasions that can sometimes be difficult to find the right words.   

I also wanted to go with an Autumn feel because this is my favourite season!  I used the "Autumn Accents" Big Shot die for the leaves using some "Eastern Elegance" Designer Series Paper.  To add colour to the paper I just sponged on some Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry, which were also the colours of the card stock.  I'm a big fan of glitter too so I added some of our new Gold Glitter to the little acorn - LOVE IT!

The border was drawn on with a ruler and Rich Razzleberry Marker and I just used our awesome Grid Paper to line it up.  The Burlap Ribbon from Stampin' Up! is one of my favourite new accessories and I just cut a bit in half and stuck it on with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  

A Naturals Designer Button and some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and Linen Thread finished it all off.  Actually, the "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set was the final touch - I am seriously addicted to that stamp set!  And it's on sale for 25% off until October 28th! If you're in Canada, click HERE and if you're in the US click HERE to take advantage of this deal!

Of course I just 'HAD' to make a custom envelope to match, using the awesome Envelope Punch Board! My card measures 7" x 4 1/4" and making an envelope to fit it was no problem at all!  The Envelope Punch Board needs to live in your craft room, if you don't already have one -it's such a great tool!

I hope my "Autumn Accents Card" inspires you to create something fun today.

It's me Frenchie with a little french accent living in the United States, that loves to create and share paper crafting. Hope I inspired you to create your own creation with paper. Thank you for stopping by. Come again soon!


  1. Your Autumn Accents card is such a beauty!! Your layout design is great and I especially like the gold embossing on the acorn and your handdrawn line on the main layer. If you have the time, I'd love to see a video on your technique for drawing such a perfect line .... it's s-o-o-o hard to create this type of line (especially getting the corners to look so nice).

  2. Trop trop beau !! J'adore la feuille et cette superbe carte.
    Too too good! I love the paper and this beautiful card.

  3. Thanks Ladies! I really had fun making this card! I'll do a video showing how I made the lines and post it soon on my serenestamper channel on youtube. Happy Stamping!

  4. What a lovely card and the leaves look so real. Looking forward to the video. Thanks for sharing with us all.
