Autumn Leaves, Thanksgiving Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today is Thanksgiving and I'd like to with you all a wonderful day.  In the midst of getting things ready for the day I took a little time out to whip up a quick card. Last of the fall leaves and pumpkins and onto the Christmas themed ones. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Distressed Tile" embossing folder. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the card base. I found it was a bit flimsy. I'm thinking that maybe next time I'd glue a couple pieces together and then texture it or glue a smooth one to the textured one and then add that to the front. I'm just now liking how it has dips in it. But it's too late to do anything about this card now without ruining it.

Next I stamped the words from the "Autumn Leaves" bundle using Mossy Meadow ink. I die cut them with the die from the same bundle.  

The leaves are from the same bundle and were die cut from the pretty "Oxidized Copper" 12" x 12" package and one gold foil paper leaf. I glued the leaves in place and then added the word piece using Dimensionals.  And the card was done.

This was a quick card to put together and it's got a soft fallish look to it. Now back to cleaning up after the holiday mess!

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