Autumn Leaves, Thanksgiving or Thank You Card, Stampin' Up! 2023

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a card to share with you using the "Autumn Leaves" bundle. Please read on to see how I made the card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White and textured it using the "Exposed Brick" embossing folder. I glued this piece to the front of the card.

Next, using the 9th circle in the "Deckled Circles" die set I cut a Basic White circle. I added Dimensionals to the back and centered the piece as best as I could by eyeing it.

The leaf from the "Autumn Leaves" set was stamped next using Crushed Curry ink. I took my Cajun Craze in spot and touched around the edges to give them a bit more texture. Then I stamped the leaf veins using Pecan Pie ink. I die cut the leaf using the matching die in the bundle. 

I also die cut two Basic White veins from the die set, they were the smallest veins in the set and I cut three little Basic White leaves.

The words are from the same set and were stamped using Pecan Pie ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them with the matching die from the bundle.

To assemble the rest of the card I set the leaf in place using Dimensionals. Then I set the word piece in place by adding two Dimensionals on the right side and glue on the left side. I added glue to the Basic White pieces and tucked them in one at a time under the word piece.

And for a final touch I added three of the green "Blooming Pearls" pearls. And the card was done.

This was a fun card and would also make a great fall masculine birthday card.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Thanksgiving/Thank You card,
