Happy Autumn

Hello friends!  Although it's 33 days till the official start of fall, I am ready!  It's my favorite time of the year!  I love the crispness in the air, snuggling in warm sweaters and crunching through the leaves.  I especially love the colors of fall.  The leaves of fall is what inspired this card.

I started with a card base 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 with Autumn Terracotta cardstock.  I layered a mat 4 x 5 1/4 with a paper from the Huntington collection. The sentiment is from the Happy Autumn stamp set, inked in Cocoa.  It is on a mat 3 3/4 x 1 1/4 with Champagne cardstock that I inked the edges with Autumn Terracotta ink and added some rhinestones I had in my stash.

The square mat 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 with Goldrush cardstock.  Over that is a mat 3 7/16 x 3 7/16 with Cocoa cardstock and I ran it through the Cuddlebug with the Argyle embossing folder.  I used the Harvest Happiness stamp set for the leaves and acorns.  This is a cricut compatible stamp set that coordinates with Art Philosophy.  I used the sizes indicated on the stamp set and cut them with White Daisy cardstock.  The leaves are found on page 34 and cut at 2".  I used Goldrush, New England Ivy, Ruby and Autumn Terracotta to stamp the leaves.  The acorns are found on page 36 and cut at 1".  I used Chocolate and Saddle inks to stamp the acorns.

For the inside, I layered the same pattern paper I used on the front from the Huntington collection and Champagne cardstock.  I inked the edges of the cardstock with Autumn Terracotta ink.  I used another leaf cut with Art Philosophy, stamped with Harvest Happiness and inked with New England Ivy.  The sentiment is from the For a Friend stamp set and inked with Chocolate.

I hope you enjoy and have a wonderful week!!
