Ink. Stamp. Share. August Blog Hop August-December 2020 Mini Catalog

It's time to hop along with the Ink. Stamp. Share. August Blog Hop as we showcase products from the new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you for the holidays. 
 Today I thought I would share a clean and simple card design featuring the Gather Together Bundle (item #153036) from the new August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. You may remember this returning favorite from last year's Holiday Catalog and I am so happy that it has made a comeback. I combined it with several products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog to create a design that would be perfect as a masculine Fall card. I love the soft texture of the background created with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (item #151775) and the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch is great for creating custom sized sentiment labels to suit longer sentiments. The color combination I chose was Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla and I used Gold Embossing Powder to heat emboss the leaf image and sentiment. The beautiful ribbon is from the new Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (item #153553) in the new Mini Catalog as is part of the wonderful Gilded Autumn Suite. 
 Products Used:
Gather Together Bundle (Mini Catalog) item #153036
Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (Annual Catalog) item #151775
Lovely Labels Pick A Punch (Annual Catalog) item #152883
Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (Mini Catalog) item #153553
Gold Embossing Powder
Mint Macaron cardstock card base - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (scored at 4 1/4")
Cajun Craze cardstock layer - 5 1/4" x 4"
Very Vanilla cardstock layer - 5" x 3 3/4" (embossed with Subtle 3D Embossing Folder)
Cajun Craze cardstock strip - 3/4" x 3 1/4"
Mint Macaron Basket Weave Ribbon - approx 4 1/2"
 The leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set was stamped onto the Cajun Craze layer of cardstock (towards the top center) and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I die cut the leaf image with the coordinating die from the Gathered Leaves Dies. I also die cut an opening in the top center of the Very Vanilla embossed cardstock layer using the same die. When assembling the card design, I attached the Cajun Craze cardstock layer to the Mint Macaron card base with adhesive. I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the Very Vanilla cardstock layer and attached the Mint Macaron Ribbon to the bottom of the layer approx. 3/4" from the bottom. I attached the Very Vanilla cardstock layer on top of the Cajun Craze layer and then added the die cut embossed leaf inside the opening with adhesive, pressing down firmly to attach it to the Cajun Craze cardstock layer. The sentiment layer was added to the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals to complete the design. The Gold Embossing adds a touch of elegance to the card that doesn't over power this simple design.
