Thankful

 


Hello and  happy Monday! We are experiencing some cooler temps and lower humidity here in the Midwest and it reminds me of fall. So, it seemed fitting when I saw the latest challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters. Why not create a fall leaf card, right? To create my card I started by layering a piece of crumbcake cardstock onto my A2 white card base and then adding a white cardstock panel that I had dry embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder by Darice to the bottom of the card. I then die cut some fall leaves using stitched leaves dies from Jillian Vance and solid cardstock and patterned papers from Paper Rose's Autumn Plaid 6x6 paper pad. I adhered the leaves directly to the card at the cardstock break staggering the solids with plaids. I then stamped the sentiment using Memento cocoa ink and a stamp I had picked up last season at the Target dollar spot. To finish off my card I added some brown and white bakers twine from Stampin' UP above the leaves and a few cocoa colored 6mm sequins from The Ton. I love this card and may have to mass produce it for Thanksgiving. Thank you for stopping  by my blog and, if you like my card be sure to leave a comment. I read and appreciate them all.

This card is absolutely lovely. What a serene, sophisticated design with oodles of charm and seasonal pizzazz. I'm a huge fan of oak leaves and make it my mission to talk as many long walks in areas that house them here in our wee town each fall, so as to enjoy them all the more while they're wearing their gorgeous autumnal colours.
