Give thanks

Hi friends! Happy Monday – I hope you had a great weekend! They sure do go by fast! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #64 – November Anything Goes! Fall is in full swing so here’s a pretty slimline chock full of Fall colors using Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf stamp set and coordinating Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf die set! OMGosh, they are gorgeous! Prickley Pear Stamps also carries Rinea Foiled Paper Autumn Variety Pack that I used for these leaves.

I cut a top-folding slimline card base measuring 9″ x 3-3/4″ from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. This is my go-to size because it fits perfectly in a #10 business size envelope which the slimline was designed to fit in, and still allows for some dimension. I cut layers from Stampin’ Up patterned paper, Darice textured brown cardstock and CutCardStock Camomile cardstock for the front, layered them together and adhered the panel to the front of the card base. I die cut three stitched circles from CutCardStock Camomile cardstock and three slightly larger stitched circles from the textured brown cardstock, layered them together in three sets, offsetting the yellow circles toward the top, and adhered them to the front panel. I adhered small foiled paper squares to white cardstock and die cut a variety of oak and maple leaves in different colors using the Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf die set, and layered two on each set of circles. I added twine bows and flat-back pearls to each set of circles. I stamped a sentiment in brown ink on white cardstock, trimmed it and flagged one end, and adhered it to the front with foam pads.

I cut a panel for the inside from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of patterned paper and the textured brown cardstock used on the front, stamped the sentiment in brown ink, and layered the panel on CutCardStock Camomile cardstock. I had a leftover die cut foiled maple leaf which I adhered to the bottom left corner of the panel.

And one more look… the colors in this angled shot show up much better than in any of the other photos I took. Very happy with how this turned out!
