Thank you

Good Morning everyone

Today im sharing 2 thank you cards for the lovely birthday gifts i was given.  Using up left over snippets & die cut leaves after making my brothers 40th birthday card (will show that once he's had his birthday)  All papers from the same pad which i teamed up with dark brown cardstock.

I first made the 6x4.5" cardblank from dark brown card, then matted a cream woodgrain onto a mustard card and then the base.  I inked the edges of the paper strips with brown and played around until happy with the layout of them.  To make some longer i cut in half as knew the middle would be hidden behind my sentiment topper.
I stamped the sentiment onto cream woodgrain card and die cut into a circle, matted onto a dark brown circle. I then arranged some leaves which had inked edges and been shaped, i attached them with glue gel so that they aren't flat on the card. 

You can see the woodgrain background better in this one

Version 2 is 6x5.5" in size

Items Used:
Paper pad - carta bella 'A perfect Autumn'
Thank you stamp - magazine freebie
Tim Holtz funky foliage dies
Foliage dies
Circle dies
Payper Box - Brown, ochre & cream woodgrain cardstock

Thank you all for stopping by.  I hope you all have a good week.  Hugs Emmax

Be still my fall adoring heart, dear Emma, these are marvellous! Not only are they bursting with seasonal charm, beauty, and elegance, but they are a brilliant way to make use of some of the skinnier paper scraps many (if not most) of us paper crafters naturally accumulate over time.

Joyful start of September wishes coming your way, my lovely friend!
