Give Thanks

 Hello Friends,

Diane here to share with you a Thanksgiving or Autumn card using several wonderful die sets available at Dies R Us. For this card I used all solid color card stock making it easy to duplicate.

My top folding white card base measures 6 1/4 X 5 1/2.  I then cut piece of white card measuring 5 7/8 X 5 1/4. I cut a piece of metallic beige card measuring 5 5/8 X 5 and embossed it using an Anna Griffin embossing folder called Thistle Bouquet.  Next, I cut the background die. I used the Creative Expression, craft die by Sue Wilson called, "Californian Collection - Beverly Hills", CED1105. This focal die is available at Dies R Us. I cut all three dies out with 110 lb. white cardstock.  I then took the center medallion and glued it to a piece of 65 lb. white cardstock and carefully fussy cut it out.

Then using the Karen Burniston, "Autumn Elements - 1059" eight piece die set, available at Dies R Us, I cut out all my embellishments using a variety of colored cardstock. I also cut a few elements using the Impression Obsession dies, DIE095-D.  Next, I stamped my sentiment, Give Thanks, and cut it out using the "Stitched Nesting Hexagons" by Tutti designs, Tutti-616.

Then I put everything together.  First I glued the embossed panel to the white cardstock panel. Next I glued down my Sue Wilson die cut being careful placing down the center medallion.  Next, I added my sentiment to the lower right hand corner using pop dots. Now, I can carefully place all my die cut elements into a pleasing fall bouquet. I popped the pumpkins, so I could tuck the leaves under them. After I glued all that down, then I placed my card front onto my card base with pop up foam pieces (pop dots).  And for the very last touch I added some flat backed pearls to the card.  I hope you will give this card a try.

Now lets take a look at the supplies I used:

Karen Burniston Autumn Elements:

Impression Obsession Leaf dies:

Tutti Design Stitched Nesting Dies:

Creative Expressions, Sue Wilson California Dies:

The embossing folder and sentiment stamp is from my own stash. These elements are easy to replace with your own selections.

I hope I was able to inspire you today,

Blessings and Hugs,
