Scor-Pal and Authentique Week with Steph Ackerman

Hey everyone, Steph here today.  The teams of  Scor-pal and  Authentique have teamed up to bring you some fun projects this week.  I used Authentique's  Seasons: Autumn  papers for my projects.  This is a beautiful assortment of papers, patterns and colors.

I decided  to create an easel card using these fun double sided papers. 

Cut Autumn 3 pattern paper 5 1/2" x 11".
Score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".
Fold to create the card, then fold again creating the easel.
Cut another piece of Autumn 3 paper 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and adhere to create the card.


 
Cut a number of Enhancements to embellish the front of the card.
Add a 1" strip across the Enhancements.
Add a cardstock sticker element on top.
Cut a 5" square of Autumn 2 paper and adhere to the base.
 

Add a 1" strip  to the base of the card with foam adhesives to hold the card upright.


Next, I created a gift card holder.

Create a 5" x 6 1/2" card from brown cardstock.
Score 1/2" around the card.
Cut a panel of Autumn 1 paper to fit within the scored areas.
Add a tag and several matted stickers to finish the front.

 
 
Inside, cut Autumn 1 and Autumn 2 papers to fit.
On the left side, create a pocket page and insert a coupon.
On the right side, add Autumn 1 paper - it has plenty of room to write a note to the recipient.
 

 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today.
 
Steph

Your easel card and gift holder are gorgeous; perfect showcases for the Autumn papers. Thank you for the instructions; this is on my 'must try' list (likely later today!) for sure. Authentique paired with Sor-pal is a perfect match! For the sharing and inspiration: thank you!!
