Easy Autumn Card - Coffee with Friends

Friends, are you enjoying the fall colours?

Here in St Stephen, New Brunswick, we had a washout of a summer. As a result, our colours are more muted than usual. But what I discovered in today's card is that muted autumn colours can be beautiful, too!

Here's my card:

A photo supply list is available at the end of this post. 

To make this card, I started by using Stylish Shapes Dies to cut the 3rd largest circle from Very Vanilla Cardstock and the 2nd largest circle from Early Espresso Cardstock. 

I stamped my image from the Coffee with Friends Stamp Set in Copper Clay onto the Very Vanilla circle, then adhered the two circles together.

For anyone who's a coffee or tea fan (any kindred spirits out there?), the Coffee with Friends Stamp Set is an awesome choice:

Next, I adhered a 2" x 5" strip of All About Autumn DSP to a 2 1/4" x 5 1/4" strip of Early Espresso Cardstock. Then I attached them both to the left margin of a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of the DSP, using a Moody Mauve pattern with beautiful foil accents.

Each page of the All About Autumn DSP has a photographic image on one side, and a pattern with foil accents on the other. That may be why this gorgeous paper keeps selling out - usually within mere hours of being re-stocked!

It's scheduled to be available again next week, so if you want some, I'd suggest checking every day to see if it's back yet. (It may well sell out rapidly yet again!) Or, if you like, message me and I will let you know when I see it's back in stock. It would be my pleasure to give you the good news!

For now, here's a look at all the fabulous All About Autumn patterns:

To assemble the card, I used Stampin' Dimensionals™ to attach:

  • the DSP panel to a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock card base
  • the two circles to the panel
A final step was embellishing with the 2023-2025 In Color™ Dots (I used Copper Clay). 

Thanks so much for checking out my card! I hope you enjoyed this project - and are inspired to enjoy the fall colours, whether muted or bright!
