Are you new to stamping? Would you like to learn the basics of How to Make A Card? Are you an experienced stamper, but you only have a limited amount of time to craft? If you answered yes to any of these things, Make it in Minutes Mondays are for you. Each Monday here at Stamping Country, I share cute cards or tags that can be made in minutes with a little bit of stamping. Get Step by Step Easy to Follow Instructions including card measurements along with a card supply list.
The final step for making today's card is to punch a maple leaf, an oak leaf and an acorn from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Paper using the Autumn Punch Pack. Adhere your punched leaves and acorn and you are done! I just love that the punches are sized to punch images from this gorgeous designer paper!
Make in Minutes Beautiful Autumn Card Directions
Cut Thick Very Vanilla Card Base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", then score at 4-1/4". To make this card even easier purchase the Very Vanilla Notecards and Envelopes and skip the cutting and scoring. Note: Notecards are slightly smaller (5" x 3-1/2"), but they will work for making this card.
You have two options for stamping your "thank you" and "Have a beautiful day". You can simply stamp your sentiments with a clear block. This takes a bit more skill to line up your images and get an evenly stamped image every time. Your second option is to use the Stamparatus to stamp your sentiments. The Stamparatus stamp positioning tool helps you stamp perfect, crisp impressions every time. You can also use your Stamparatus for Hinge Stamping. Notice that I stamped the "thank you" 3 times and I only have to line up my stamp once. To stamp the second and third "thank you", I simply moved my stamp plate down to the next hinge and stamped. Watch the video below to learn Basic Stamping Techniques Using the Stamparatus.
The "Thank You" was stamped using Mint Macaron ink and the "Have a beautiful day" was stamped using Cajun Craze ink. I chose these two colors because they matched my Guilded Autumn Designer Paper.
