Simple But Elegant Personalised Birthday Card using Gilded Autumn

Hello and welcome to Part 4 of my Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Suite Showcase. If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here… Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. Since Part 3 consisted of Gift Wrap for my Mam’s Birthday, you may have guessed that a matching card would feature at some point! And here it is… my elegant Gilded Autumn personalised card…

Let’s Make It…

I have used one of the Stampin’ Up! Notecards & Envelopes because the card will be going inside one of the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes with another gift.

Trim a piece of Brushed Metallic Cardstock (Gold) to 8.2 x 11.6 cm. Follow this with a layer of the Gilded Autumn Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 7.7 x 11 cm.

Stamp the sentiment in Mint Macaron ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. The sentiment I have used is from the Pallet Thoughts Stamp Set. Use the same die to cut a piece of the Brushed Metallic Cardstock. Adhere them together as shown in the image. Cut a length of the Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon, double it over and adhere to the back of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape. Adhere the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Foam Adhesive Sheets and the Playful Alphabet Dies to cut the required letters from Mint Macaron Cardstock. Adhere these to the card front.

Finish off with a few Gilded Gems.

I have included images of the card before adding the personalisation and gems because I think it would make a beautiful alternative card!

How To Make This Stunning Gilded Autumn Gift Bag

Hello and welcome to Part 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Gilded Autumn Suite Showcase. Today I’m going to show you how to make this stunning Gilded Autumn gift bag with matching tag. If you missed the first two instalments of this showcase, you can find them here… Part 1 and Part 2.

As you may have guessed, this bag was made for my Mam! It’s her birthday at the end of the month and I wanted a cute bag to put some of her gifts in. As usual, she’ll see her presents here before she sees them in real life – sorry Mam!

Let’s Make It…

Start with a sheet of the Gilded Autumn Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). I chose the Mint Macaron sheet with Copper foil foliage because the foiling really makes it feel special.

Score the DSP at 10, 14.5, 24.5 and 29 cm. Rotate through 90 degrees and score at 5, 25 and 29 cm. Check whether your DSP sheet has a particular orientation before scoring! Fold along all score lines.

Snip up the score lines at the bottom of the DSP to meet the horizontal score line. Create tabs by snipping off small triangles.

Assemble the bag using Tear & Tape on the 1cm tabs and on the bottom of the bag. Squeeze the top of the bag together to close. Punch holes in the top of the bag for the ribbon.

Create the tag using a 10 x 5 cm piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock. Shape the tag using the Detailed Trio and Scalloped Tag Topper Punches. Decorate with elements punched from the DSP using the Autumn Punch Pack. Cut the letters (Playful Alphabet Dies) from Copper Brushed Metallic Cardstock using the Foam Adhesive Sheets.

Tie the tag to the bag using the Copper Metallic Ribbon and embellish with one of the Acorn Trinkets.

Finally, fill with goodies and gift to someone who deserves Speciality DSP for their gift wrap!

Gilded Autumn Suite Card

Hello and welcome to the first part of a brand new Stampin’ Up! Suite Showcase. This month I will be featuring the Gilded Autumn Suite which consists of a Stamp Set and Punches Bundle, Speciality Designer Series Paper, Brushed Metallic Cardstock (wow), Acorn Trinkets (super cute) and the most gorgeous ribbon combo I have ever seen (seriously)! We are starting with this Gilded Autumn Suite Card…

Let’s make it…

The (standards A6) card base is created from Crumb Cake cardstock. Then use the three largest Rectangle Stitched Dies as follows: cut out a piece of Early Espresso cardstock using the largest die; cut an aperture in this to create a frame using the third smallest dies; cut out a piece of the Gilded Autumn DSP using the second largest die. This will allow you to adhere the DSP to the frame. Adhere the whole piece to the card front.

Stamp the leaves and acorn onto Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze cardstock using Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso ink. Cut these elements out using the coordinating punches. Adhere these around the frame.

Using Tear & Tape, adhere a length of the Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon to the DSP. Stamp the sentiment onto Crumb Cake cardstock in Early Espresso ink. Cut out the sentiment piece using one of the smaller Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Cut out the banner from the Tasteful Labels Dies in Gold Foil Sheet; snip in two and adhere to the back of the sentiment piece. Adhere the sentiment piece over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
