Beautiful Autumn treat holder

 I love the new Beautiful Autumn suite.  The Designer Series Paper is absolutely beautiful!  And the punches that go with the stamp set are so much fun.  I made this quick & easy treat holder using both.


Not really any dimensions for this. I did use the Tasteful Labels dies to cut all the layers.  Then you just need a scrap of Very Vanilla to stamp & punch your oak leave out of.

You can see how I made it here - https://youtu.be/hydsd4dT8-E


And a couple more cards using the Beautiful Autumn set:

This is a super easy 'fancy fold'.  Create a normal card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.  Then just cut 1 inch off the right side of the front of the card. I added some more of the beautiful DSP.

I CASEd this one from Christine Miller. I loved the gilded DSP in the background!
