The Stampin’ Up! (SU) Day of Gratitude Stamp Set is one of my favorite SU stamp sets for the Autumn. And the beautiful Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) that goes with the stamp set is one of my favorite SU DSP. Although both are retired products, I decided to use them to create my gratitude gate fold card.
Isn’t the name of the DSP so appropriate for this time of the year? What comes to your mind when you think, “Autumn Spice”? I think of fall apples and the products that are made with them. For example, spicy apple butter, spicy apple cider, apple pie, and other yummy products. The “spice of autumn” brings to my mind leaves turning to beautiful colors, leaves falling from the trees, and children playing in piles of leaves. OK, so much for that!!
I created the Day of Gratitude gate fold card by using the SU’s Floral Frames Framelits. In 2012, I first published the method for folding card stock and using SU framelits to create a gate fold card. Click HERE and you’ll find a tutorial on using the SU framelits to create a gate fold card.
The above pictures are closeups of the sentiment which is part of the Day of Gratitude Stamp Set. I really like the medallion that I fussy cut from the DSP, covered it with Stampin’ Up! Crystal Effect, and added a drop of Ranger Yellow Stickels.
As you can see in the following picture, I added foam adhesive dots to the layers of the sentiment to give the card so dimensions.
Tell me, what is your favorite Stampin’ Up! autumn stamp set!!
