Gilded Autumn Thank You Card

Featuring a Gilded Autumn thank you card with video.

Gilded Autumn Thank You Card

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been playing with all of the products in Stampin’ Up!’s Gilded Autumn Suite. I’m especially in love with the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. Talk about gorgeous! Talk about hoarding material! The metallic highlights in select sheets make this 12 x 12 paper shine.

Gilded Autumn Thank You Card

Today’s card features just one of the lovely sheets of this Designer Series Paper. Notice that the patterned paper covers the entire front of the card. Be sure to watch the video below for a tip on getting this panel on straight. Normally, I’ll put layers on the card front; they’re easier to line up and get straight. But this quick tip makes it so easy!

  • 11-piece photopolymer stamp set (clear stamp blocks sold separately);
  • 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, 8 each of 6 double-sided designs;

The stamp sentiments (A Bunch of Birthday Love to You, Thank You, Such Happy News, and Sorry You’re Feeling Blue), Designer Series Paper, and embossed sheets lend themselves well to a huge variety of designs and uses. Add your special touches with the ribbon included.

A refill is also available for $23.

Other Samples

The kit includes two sets of paper flowers. I colored the small flower with Stampin’ Up!’s Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blend and added it to the sentiment with a Glue Dot. (Just think, you can make these flowers any color you wish with any of the variety of blends.) Card inspired by papercraftskies.

From here, my ideas spun to other sentiments. I really needed a few thinking of you cards.

Tree Angle Gift Card Holder

Today’s post shares a fun Tree Angle gift card holder. Be sure to watch the video for detailed instructions and techniques.

Tree Angle Gift Card Holder

As the holidays approach, we’re starting to shop for gifts for loved ones and friends. Gift cards rate as popular go-to items each year. I’m sharing a fun and festive way to present and send those gift cards. This card fits in one of Stampin’ Up!’s regular-size envelopes.

Today’s card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Tree Angle stamp set, Stitched Triangles, and Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper. I also added the gorgeous Red & Green Foil sheets.

Basically, this Tree Angle Gift Card Holder card starts as a full-size card. Using the Stampin’ Trimmer, I cut a piece out of the front. It leaves a gate flap on the bottom.

Here’s a photo of the inside of the card.

You can see that the gift card slides into the front flap. The right side gives you space to write a message.

Here are the measurements for the different pieces of designer series paper used here. You can change up the design using the many different varieties of patterned paper offered by Stampin’ Up!

And, here is a YouTube video (a Facebook live replay) showing you step-by-step how to create this card. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Gilded Autumn Suite Card Sample

Please enjoy this Gilded Autumn Suite Card sample.

Guilded Autumn Suite Card Sample

Some days, card-making inspiration flows smoothly. No sooner do I get one card designed when another idea pops into my head. I love those days when it seems creativity never ends. However, sometimes the mojo is missing. Today is one of those days. (And, let me tell you, it’s certainly not from lack of stamp sets and dies and punches and Designer Series Paper. I have plenty of that! And then some!)

I knew I wanted to use items from Stampin’ Up!’s Gilded Autumn Suite. Find it on page 45 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. The Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP) includes an array of gorgeous designs — almost too good to use! I also love that the shapes in the Autumn Punch Pack punch the leaves from several sheets of the DSP. The foil accents really make several of these sheets shine!

Gilded Autumn Suite Card Sample

  • This card uses a base of Very Vanilla thick card stock. I love the thick card stock for bases.
  • The next layer is a piece of the Mint Macaron DSP with foiled leaves.
  • I embossed a piece of Early Espresso card stock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to one of the foil pieces included in the Brushed Metallic Package.
  • Stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso and placed it on top of the embossed piece.
  • Used a piece of the Copper Metallic ribbon across the front.
  • Adorned with leaves cut from the DSP and the Metallic Paper.

I know this card is just the start of all the wonderful cards to be created with the suite of products. Now I have to go clean the mess off the dining room table.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to be your Stampin’ Up! demonstrator if you aren’t already working with one. Leave a comment below or send me an email at kimqskards@gmail.com

Happy stamping!
