Masculine Fall Card

Good Afternoon!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at Stamp TV, Men, Men, Men, Men (to make a masculine card), Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes!  and Simon Says, Work It Wednesday.

I decided to make a nice Fall card for my Uncle Jim who lives in Arizona.

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets, Fall Foliage (leaves and sentiment) and So Grateful (acorn).  Inks in Always Artichoke, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie.  I stamped the leaf image 3 times in the different inks and fussy cut them out.  Acorn image was colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut out.     

Embossing Folders; Swiss Dots and Wood Grain for texture.  A wee bit of thin Jute Twine and 2 Enamel Brads for accents.  Designer Paper is Roam by K & Company.

I just really love this little cluster of leaves topped with an acorn.  And I cannot wait for cooler temps on a daily basis (now I did not say snow or winter, so don't yell at me--just the cool comforts of Fall)
Thanks so much for blowing in.


  1. Perfect fall masculine card. Your uncle will love it

  2. This is just gorgeous - I love all the texture and colors and how you cut out the leaves and then topped them with that cute acorn. I'm so partial to acorns - I think I have a stamp somewhere. Makes me want to break out my fall stamps. Your uncle will love it!!

  3. I am right there with you on the comfort temps of fall! This card is really clever the clusters of leaves and that cute acorn!

  4. Very pretty masculine card! Love the Fall colors and those great leaves. I am so ready for some cooler temps!

  5. You have sold me on the fall colors. You did a great job here. There is a difference between a fall green and a spring green. Love your cluster of leaves, topped off with the acorn. We have had cooler days here too. Sure feels like fall and that summer is over.

  6. Gorgeous card, love the leaves and acorn and the warm colors

  7. Perfect mix of papers again. Love the embossing and the fall leaves and acorn.
