Fall Center Scene Stepper Card

Oh my goodness you guys I saw this incredible new to me card style on Pinterest and just had to try it.  I made the card base myself looking at other cards.  Next time I will widen the center area and make it more narrow on the left and right side to give a bigger area for the scene.  I kept this one pretty simple but I look forward to making many more with lots of layering.  I have lots of ideas swirling around now for this one.  LOL
I used a regular 65 pound Recollection's white cardstock for the base, in the future I will be sure to use my Neenah 110 pound.  I used brown Recollection's cardstock for the shadow layers and some very adorable Cricut pattern papers to decorate my mats and the inside also. They are both from Cricut Doodlecharms 6 x 12 mat stack.
The adorable little acorn with leaf on center stage is from Cricut - B is for boy cartridge.  I stamped his little face from peachy Keen stamps - Everyday Characters.  I chalked his cheeks with pink glitter chalk.  I cut a small slit on the platform below him and used a thin strip of acetate to slide into it to adhere him to & stand him up on, I just cut a piece from an old clam shell package.  I used a Die-Versions Whispers - Old Oak Leaves die to cut out the decorative leaves with acorns on either side.  I only wanted to use a small portion so I cut away what I wanted from each one.  I used a stitched flag banner die for my Happy Thanksgiving sentiment cut from kraft cardstock.  The stamp is from Lawn Fawn - Celebration Scripty Sayings.  I stamped first in brown pigment ink then again with clear VersaMark ink  and heat embossed with clear acrylic embossing powder.  The other green leaf is from the same Cricut cartridge – B is for boy, only this time I cut the solid leaf backing and used the negative space for the vein that was left over from the first leaf.  I added a few gold glitter gum drops down by the sentiment just to add a little bling.  Oops I almost forgot I also cut a Wavy Flag Fishtail Banner from Kraft cardstock to layer at the top.  I thought about adding the word FALL to the banner but I kind of just liked it like this so I left it alone.

I am entering into these fun challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge #334-Autumn 
Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my project.  I really enjoyed creating this new to me card style and look forward to making more in the future.
