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!

Always Thankful Thanksgiving Card

Stampin' Up! Always Thankful Thanksgiving card

The detail in the stamp set, combined with the awesome patterns and colors in the new Spice Cake designer series paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog, makes for an autumn card that has you almost SMELLING the pumpkin!

I colored the wheelbarrow and pumpkins in with Aquapainters and a tiny bit of reinker from the colors in the paper (Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Soft Suede and More Mustard).
