Triple Step Fall Card

The Card Concept #142 {Autumn Bounty}

Yesterday was one of those days where I spent some time fooling around with one thing and another and not getting inspired by any of it. One of the things I did was to cut this card base with a die from Divinity Designs and then having no idea what to do with it. As well I cut another card base into a double gate fold and got stuck with that too. In the end I walked away from my craft room in disgust.

A reasonable nights sleep and a rainy morning sent me back into my craft room and here we are with a completed card and another one partially done too. I decorated the card front with some CS from a paper pad called textured card stock by Momenta. It isn’t actually textured but the patterns make it look that way. Once I had the pieces cut and adhered I took the less than perfect leftover background piece and cut some circles out of it. Did the same with some cream CS. I went over the background pieces with some gold ink and a pen around the edge so it has a bit of sparkle on both pieces. Then I stamped the focal piece with a fern leaf in different ink colours. No idea who made the leaf stamps but they are red rubber stamps and I think I got them in a sale somewhere. I used some other leaves from a StampinUp set and stamped the sentiment from that same set on the smaller circle which I heat embossed. Glued these pieces to the background circles and than added them to card. Went through my stash of bling and found the copper leaf and baubles for the bottom and an old jewelry piece I had broken up a while ago. Decided that this would work for this weeks The Card Concept challenge. To me this card seems to fit the Mixed media style best but it could also be FreeStyle collage.

  1. Well it looks like you were really inspired today. The card is awesome. It really does look textured. The baubles really add a nice touch. The multicolored fern is lovely.

  2. Sometimes walking away is the best thing to do. I guess my brain was thinking subliminally overnight as I had no issues when I sat down this morning. Glad you like it.


  3. I love that it just came together for you this morning. It’s fantastic that it’s a step card in 2 different directions. That paper really does seem to be textured. Isn’t it fun how things can appear to be what they’re not. Great job on this.

  4. Thanks Golda – today it seems my brain is in creative mode as another one I cut yesterday wouldn’t come together either. It worked today. Not sure when I shall post though – I’ve done a few recently that may fit into upcoming challenges so I am hanging onto them for a few days to see.

  5. Thanks Lisa – deconstructing store bought cards and the odd bit of jewelry gave me something a bit different for this card.


  6. This is so pretty! I love the card base design, and the paper you used on the steps looks great. Love your metal embellishments as well. Awesome that your inspiration returned after getting some rest.

  7. The card base was done using a Divinity Designs die that I had forgotten I had. The rest just took some time for me to use my imagination as it sure disappeared yesterday. Glad you like it.


  8. Good night’s sleep and rain really brought our your creativity, Johanna. The step card and that patterned paper looks great. Love the circle images and your added jewelry pieces.
