Be Thankful

Hello and happy Friday! Autumn is finally here...the weather has cooled off and the leaves are starting to change! My card today was created for the latest If You Give A Crafter A Cookie card challenge. To create my card I started by layering some burnt orange cardstock from The Paper Studio onto my A2 white card base and then some early espresso cardstock from Stampin' UP on top of that. I then layered a piece of patterned paper from an autumn themed paper pack I picked up at the dollar spot at my local Target on top. I stamped the sentiment from a stamp I also picked up in the dollar bin at Target onto some more early espresso cardstock using Versamagic ink and heat embossed it with some Recollections detail embossing powder in snow. I cut the cardstock down into a sentiment strip, matted it onto more of the burnt orange cardstock and popped it up off of the card using foam tape from 3M. I then die cut some leaves using crumbcake, early espresso, and burnt orange cardstocks and one of the dies from the Jillian Vance Leaves and Petals die set and layered it onto the sentiment strip. To complete my card I topped it off with some white embroidery thread I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I hope you like my adorable (and ridiculously inexpensive to create) card!

Like it? I love it, Celeste! A card can never have too many beautiful and colorful autumn leaves on it! And I love the sediment panel, punctuated with the diecut leaves! Go you for making my kind of frugal card!! Keep safe! Hugs, Darnell

somehow you managed to make your cookie stack just as scrumptious looking as that pile of cookies! Channeling Fall at its finest.
