Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday Beauty of the Earth and Gorgeous Leaves Card

Happy Monday Stampers, Its Alternate Monday time!

What is Alternate Monday???  This means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of the Earth and Gorgeous Leaves Card:

I changed this card from portrait to landscape, from Christmas to fall and the card looks gets a great “alternate” look

DSP panel: Beauty of the Earth 3-3/8 x 4-5/8

The Details:

The Sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set onto the Basic White card stock with Cajun Craze Ink

Putting the  Card Together:
