Plaid Tidings paper is one of my favorite paper packs. It is so versatile. This card speaks fall to me.

Card Base:
Cut Blackberry Bliss 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.

Card Mat:
Cut Black Berry Bliss paper 4 X 5 ¼. Emboss with Subtle embossing folder.

Card Front:
Cut 3 strips of Brushed Metallic Cardstock ¾ X 4. (Any of the metallics in this paper pack will work on this card.) Attach the 3 strips to the embossed card mat. I attached my top strip 1” from the top of the card mat. Attach the remaining two strips ¼” apart from each other. Attach card mat to card base.

Cut Plaid Tidings paper 3 ¼ X 4 ¼. Attach this piece to the card mat.

From the Gilded Autumn paper pack, cut splatter paper 3 X 4. Die cut Leaf from upper portion of this paper. Stamp sentiment to lower edge of this paper. Attach stamped, die cut splatter paper to plaid paper with dimensionals.

That’s it; you have finished your card front. Wasn’t that easy? For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Whisper White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
