DSP Day - Happy Autumn

For today's designer paper card, choose a stamp set that would work well in a large circle.  I selected Season of Friendship from Stampin' Up!  These fall papers were released with this set a couple of years ago.  I've always wanted to use this large leaf print paper.  Putting it on opposite side of the card from the large stamped tree balances the image and keeps the paper from being overwhelming.

Here's the sketch.

Project Notes:
  • This trifold card is made from a piece of kraft cardstock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2".  It is scored at 2 1/4" on one each side.  To keep from having a gap where the edges meet in the middle, the narrow rust DSP overhangs the edge about a quarter to a half inch.
  • I cut the full circle and stamped the tree image.  I did not trim off the right right side of the circle until after it and the larger circle mat were attached to the card.
  • I cut a slit in the side to run the ribbon through the right side of the card only.
Thanks for visiting today!
