Give Thanks For All Things

Crisp fall card of gratitude | Stampingville #Thanksgiving #papercrafts #cardmaking #StampinUp

Don't look now, but November is right around the corner. Egads! How did that happen? Anyhoo ... here is a crisp fall card of gratitude (aka Thanksgiving card) ready for sending to a loved one you are thankful for.

Stampin' details:
  • Popping up a portion of the greeting emphasizes the sentiment. It also helps to draw the eye there, rather than letting the leaves steal the show.
  • The greeting (from the For All Things stamp set) fits perfectly within the Oval Punch. 
  • The Artisan Label Punch is ideal for layering behind the oval. Punch just one, cut it in half and spread it out.

Coordinating elements and simple techniques = easy wow

  • The leaves are die-cut from cardstock, strategically folded to mimic real leaves, then crinkled and scrunched for further distressing. A bit of light sponging around the edges and along fold/crinkle lines brings the leaves to life.
  • Lullaby Designer Series Paper isn't just for baby! With colors like Baked Brown Sugar, Hello Honey, and Pistachio Pudding, this patterned paper was a no-brainer for this fall card.
  • The Arrows Embossing Folder mimics the patterned paper and it's a match made in heaven. It's also a nice break from woodgrain everything this time of year.
The random burlap strands might be my favorite thing about this card! See another use for them on this gift tag and how to quickly create them.
