Hi Crafty Friends,
I am have been busy in my craft room coming up with more ideas to share with you! Today’s card is a wonderful fall themed thank you card. I always seem to be low on thank you cards. I guess that means I am sending out plenty!
This card reminds me a bit of a double ended cornucopia! To make this started by stamping and cutting out the leaves. I used the Falling for Leaves Stamp set and colorful Seasons stamp set. The dies used are the Detailed Leaves Thinlits and Seasonal Layers Thinlits. The card stock colors used are Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand and Copper Foil. The stamped leaves on the Sahara Sand paper are part of the Falling for Leaves set. I also added in some little dots that came from the Petal Palette stamp set. I went over part of those leaves with some Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle! The copper leaves that have been die cut were also embossed with my Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. Always remember when both die cut and emboss something to do the die cut first! This way you don’t smooth out the embossing you just did. 🙂 The Thankful sentiment is part of the Falling for Leaves stamp set and was stamped in blackberry ink. The circle is part of the Stitched Shapes Framelits. To finish things off I wrapped some Copper Metallic Thread around my circle and added some Gold Metallic Pearls. Even though I used more copper the gold pearls are so close you can’t tell the difference!
Now that we have officially entered Autumn in the USA I am ready to make even more fall and Halloween themed cards. How about you? Leave me a comment letting me know what current project your working on. 🙂
