Gently Falling Thanksgiving Card

Gently Falling Thanksgiving Card

Gently Falling Thanksgiving Card Okay, in my usual papersaving manner, I have cut the background paper (‘Spice Cake’ designer series paper) in a 3×4 in piece (for the bottom) and 2×4 in piece (for the top) which maximizes the amount of layers I can get with no waste… and the middle gap kind’ve works with the Espresso cardstock showing.

The leaves were stamped in Early Espresso ink onto the ‘First Edition’ designer series paper, sponged and cut out.  I used two Sizzix dies to make the scalloped circle and inside vanilla… I need to pull out my SU circle cutter to make a closer fitting center, but I was being lazy this week.

Tell me what you think!

Stampin' Up! Gently Falling Stamp Set
I just simply love this new set of outline/inline stamps ‘Gently Falling’ from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.

In fact, I actually got my act together and created a video (if you are reading this via Feedburner mail, you can’t see the video).

You’ll see that my hand is bandaged… I got the idea to give my cat a flea-bath. Seemed like a good idea at the time.  I have stitches, antibiotics and a tetanus shot for my efforts. Anyone want an orange tabby cat? Spayed and all her shots.

But I digress.

The card is Very Vanilla on Crumb Cake.  The ink is Crumb Cake and the leaf is Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie done with the ‘rolling’ technique.  This is an old technique that’s been around forever, however it is easier ‘seen than said,’ if you get what I mean.

I want to credit Erika Clark for the inspiration for this card!
