Today’s card follows Sketch #15 from my Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook, which I introduced yesterday on my blog.  Enjoy more sketch ideas, along with a printable PDF on my Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook page here

Stampin’ Pretty Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Begin with a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base of Whisper White Thick card stock. 

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop the following Stitched Rectangles from a piece of  Plaid Tidings 6×6 Designer Series Paper:

  • Middle: 3 7/8 x 2 5/8 Stitched Rectangle Die
  • Inside:  3 1/2 x 2 1/4 Stitched Rectangle Die 

Adhere the two pieces as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment (Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set) in Tuxedo Black  Memento Ink onto Whisper White card stock. 

Crop with the 2 3/8 x 1 Stitched Rectangle Die. 

Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere two Brushed Copper Foil pieces that have been copped with the stems from the Celebration Labels Dies with Mini Glue Dots.
