Harvest Delights on the Easel



Welcome to our August NEW AT SU! Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are featuring the fun fold cards with a fall theme with products from either the Annual Catalogue or the 2022 Jul/Dec Mini Catalogue! I wanted to show you a fairly easy Easel fold card which is great for display, and I'm using the Rustic Harvest Suite with its Hello Harvest Bundle to create it.

The Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper is a rich looking collection of fall designs featuring pumpkins, leaves, chrysanthemums and acorns. It uses Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow, Early Espresso, and surprisingly, Basic Black. I've used Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow, Basic Black and then added in some Copper and Gold metallics for my design.

  • The standard card base is Cajun Craze cardstock. Over that is a layer of Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper, in the Mossy Meadow colour. To make an easel card, cut a piece of cardstock in half at 4 1/4" on the short side to get a piece 4 1/4" x 11". On the long side, score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".
  • On a piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pumpkin image, the flower bouquet image and four leaf images, as well as the single small flower image in Versamark ink and covered them with Copper embossing powder. I then heat set them using the Heat Tool. Using the Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends combo I coloured in the pumpkin and using the Cajun Craze and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends, as well as the Mossy Meadows Stampin' Blends Combo for the foliage and the pumpkin stem, and a little So Saffron Light on some of the puffy flowers I coloured in the bouquet and pumpkin stem.
  • I die cut all the pieces with the Rustic Pumpkin Dies, then die cut and embossed two more pumpkins using the Brushed Metallic Cardstock in copper and gold. I die cut the stems and vines from Mossy Meadows cardstock.

  • I assembled all the pieces as you see here. The bouquet, one of the leaves and two vine pieces are mounted on the inside of the card, on Dimensionals to create the "door stop" that keeps the easel open for display. There is a sentiment from the stamp set inside the card, stamped in Mossy Meadow ink.
  • The outer sentiment, also from the stamp set, is embossed in copper, on the banner that was die cut from Basic White using a die from Rustic Pumpkin Dies, with an identical backing die cut from Gold Brushed Metallic cardstock. I mounted it right on the 2 3/4" fold on the top flap of the card so it would pop up when the easel was folded.

I hope you enjoyed this autumn themed card made with the Rustic Harvest Suite! I know you would enjoy creating with this great suite of products!
