Stampin' Up! Gather Together fall card

Here is another pretty fall card, that is a totally Susie card!
I just love it!!
And it was so fun to make!
NOTE:  You wouldn't have to use stamped images on these 3 strips on the card front.  You could use DSP too!  All of these 3 strips could be different, like I did here.  Or they could all be the same too!   I have done several different cards in various colors and with various images over the year, with this layout!  It is one that I never get tired of.  And it has endless possibilities! 
How did I do it?
#1.  Take 3 strips of different colors of card stock, that measure 3 1/2 x 1 1/2" each.
#2.  The bright orange square below is actually a post it note.  I used it with the sticky end up & laid the 3 card stock pieces, side by side, along it to hold them all together.
#3.  Now carefully stamp the leaf images onto these strips of card stock, being very careful to not move them.  You want them to line up perfectly & not omit any part of the stamped image when you stamp them. 
 #4.  Flip the pieces over & write numbers on them- so that you can keep them in order when you are assembling them.
#5.  Now adhere these strips (in order of 1-3), directly onto a piece of Early Espresso card stock that measures 5 x 3 3/4".   Start by putting the 2 outside pieces on first. 
 #6.  Then lastly, adhere the center one- leaving approximately a 1/8" edge around & in between all of the strips. 
#7.  This is what it looks like when all of them are adhered. 
#8.  When I got it all done, I added a combination of approx. 1/8 tsp of Champagne Shimmer paint to a Stampin' Spritzer with rubbing alcohol in it.  Be sure you SHAKE THIS WELL in between each use!  Hold the spritzer about 5" away from your card stock when you spray it!  And then check out the awesome sparkle that it adds!  
NOTE:  Start with a LITTLE shimmer, as you can always add more!  You will need to let you card stock dry too.  So be sure you don't over spray it! 
I then added some words & braided linen trim to finish it off!
I hope you like this card as much as I do!
