Hey y’all, it’s Stephanie Vittorio from Coffee Stamps Chaos here with a fun and simple project for you! Fall is definitely in the air, the air is cool and crisp, the leaves have pretty much all changed colors and it’s the perfect season for hot drinks, hot soups and cozy socks! I don’t know about you, but I love the changing of the seasons and there is something special about fall. So let’s make a fun and simple fall card, it’ll make a perfect addition to a fall gift basket for your friends or family along with some hot drink mixes, soup mixes and cozy socks, or even a cozy new blanket and a good book!  

Heres the list of supplies you’ll need: 

rust colorplan, white birch wood veneer, oatmeal speckletone, and bitter chocolate colorplan papers in a stack

Now that we have our supplies, let’s get started! 

I always start with my die cutting, because this is usually where my ideas begin. I cut three each of the letters in Oatmeal Speckletone - I doubled up my Cardstock to make this process go faster. Then I die cut one each of the letters needed from the White Birch Wood Veneer

Next, I print the plaid digital background onto the Rust paper. I then die cut my base layer using my stitched rectangle dies

Once the die cutting was done, I glued my letters together, 3 each of Oatmeal Speckletone and then added the wood veneer layer on top, I repeated this process for each letter, and it honestly goes faster than you’d think. I love the dimension this gives the letters!

Once my letters were all glued together I created the layering for my card. I layered Sirio Ultra Black behind the orange layer and trimmed it so it just peeked out a little bit, then did the same with the Oatmeal Speckletone. I used a ruler to make sure my letters were aligned and glued them in place. I added foam tape to the back of the main panel and popped it up on my Bitter Chocolate card base.

    Now sit back and admire your work!!
