Autumn Birthday


I wish I had more reasons to make autumn cards because I love, love, love the colors!  I made this one for my hairdresser who has a birthday on the first day of autumn.


  • 100# Simon Says Stamp Cardstock, Slate, cut to 4.25 x 11 inches and folded in half to make a top-folding card of 4.25 x 5.5 inches
  • Hero Arts Ink Pad, Charcoal
  • Northwoods Maple Leaf Red Rubber Stamp – This is difficult to see, but I stamped around the perimeter of the front of the card with the leaf stamp.


  • Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid 6 x 6 Pad, Fall, trimmed to 3.75 x 5 inches
  • Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Die, 2.25 x 3.5 inches
  • Cardstock, Orange Peel
  • Simon Says Stamp Cardstock, Ivory – Die cut orange and ivory cardstock with the same die. 


  • Strathmore Bristol Paper
  • Northwoods Maple Leaf Red Rubber Stamp 
  • VersaMark Clear Ink Pad
  • Simon Says Stamp Rose Gold Embossing Powder
  • MISTI Stamping Tool 
  • heat gun
  • Zig Markers
  • Tim Holtz Waterbrush
  • Faber-Castell PITT Pen, Walnut Brown – go over the lines


  • Stampendous Birthday Wish Card Sentiments Stamp Set
  • Hero Arts Ink Pad, Charcoal


  • Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Runner Permanent Tape Runner for layers and leaves – Bend the tips of the leaves upward.
  • Westrim Crafts Jute Twine – Tie into a bow.
  • Zots Clear Adhesive Dots to adhere the bow
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss – Ripened Pumpkin
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss – Dark Walnut

I used some of the leftover plaid paper to decorate the inside of the card.  I just love the way these leaves turned out.  I was skeptical about using the Rose Gold Embossing Powder on the leaves, but it turned out to be a good choice.  I hope you like it and get inspired to make some autumn cards.

Until later,
