A Fall Birthday Card

What a crazy month or should I say two months? I can't believe how the time was flying away. Well, long story short I am back on track. Still getting settled into my new computer :-)

So let's get going and catch up with our September card making class projects.

For the first card I used the Close to My Heart fall paper set "Falling for You". We wanted to create more masculine card and I think these colors work great. Our card base was a 5"x7" card from Kraft-paper. We folded the front page in half and adhered the two parts together. So our card base now has half a front and a full back page. (hope this makes sense :-) )

Two pieces of brown cardstock were adhered next. They are cut about 1/4" shorter on each side, one for the front and one for the back(inside) of the card. We first adhered the front panel to the card. It is centered, but flush with the right front side. The inside panel is also centered and matches the front part.

Now we adhered a piece of cream colored cardstock the both panels. These pieces are cut about 1/8" smaller than the brown ones and are adhered in the same manner as the brown ones.

The design paper from the "Falling for You" pack was cut in diamond shapes so four could fit on the cream cardstock in a row. The half panel on the front got two rows and the inside panel got one row on the right side.

Another piece of Kraft-paper was cut at 2" x 11" and wrapped around the card. We glued the two parts together and cut the excess paper away. A cream colored square was cut about 1/4" small than the brown square and glued on top of it. All that was left was to stamp the phrase on the front and the inside and decorate the card with a few leaves.
