Carta Bella Welcome Fall Tiered Tray Tutorial with Spellbinders Becky Roberts Tiered Tray Dies

Hello, Friends!  This Carta Bella Welcome Fall Tiered Tray tutorial is such a fun bit of autumn home décor!  A few days ago, I introduced you to this fabulous die collection, but I used it to make a Christmas Tiered Tray. It was such an enjoyable crafty adventure that I decided to create another version in fall hues.



Look at all the fall goodness tucked into this tray!  We have another fall gnome, a fall banner, acorns, autumn leaves and pumpkins.  These are all cut from scraps of patterned paper using the Tiered Tray Décor Dies, as are the little prim house, pitcher and coffee mug.  This is a great way to use up little bits and pieces of pretty patterned paper!

Once again, I combined fussy cut elements from the 6×6 paper pad with the die cut pieces.


If you like to decorate for each season or special occasion, this die would be a fun addition to your stash.  The video tutorial below will show you how to assemble the tiered tray in a way that creates lots of depth and dimension on your finished card.

A Peek Inside

Here’s a peek at the inside of this vibrant fall card.  I sure do love this paper collection from Carta Bella.  The autumn hues are so warm and cozy, and it’s filled with delightful patterns.  I could not resist adding a flap page and a pocket inside the card.


Open the flap page to reveal a little photo spot and….a tiered tray!  How fun is that?  The pocket if filled with a 4×6 notecard, some tasty fall chocolate, a honey stick and a tea sachet.

This sweet little tea sachet is tucked into the pocket.  Remember when I made the Stitched Diamond Shaker Card?  Well the die cut on the front of the sachet is left over from that crafty adventure.  It really dresses up a tea bag!
