A Simple Thanks Will Do...

Pin It Now!
This sample is also a submission in the I{Heart}Ribbon Challenge at Deesigns by Nina Dee.
The layout of this card is taken from one of her recent blog posts! 
Here's a simple Thank You card using Gently Falling, a sneak peek from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini.


I love the variety of leaves in this 12-pc set.

Stamp a backdrop of all the leaves in Crumb Cake on Confetti White cardstock. For the main leaf, stamp it with Early Espresso on Whisper White, then sponge a variety of Autumny colors (Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, & a touch of Old Olive). Then cut it out. Tie a long strand of linen thread around the length, then a piece of Certainly Celery seam binding ribbon which is gathered & adhere with glue dots. Attach your leaf with a Stampin' Dimensional. Using the Tag Punch, stamp & punch Thanks from any variety of sets, along with a couple punched from  *new* Spice Cake DSP (available 9/1). Use Tombo Multipurpose adhesive to fan out the tags, punch a small hole in top & insert a mini brad. Adhere with glue dot. Finally, use some of the *new* Dazzling Details to set off the tips of the leaves. This little touch does so much for the card! Here's a closer look...

If you haven't seen the new Holiday Mini, you're missing out on a huge batch of loveliness! Email me at erika.stmichaelsrv@gmail.com if you'd like a copy.

Have a blessed & creative day! Erika. www.erikaclark.stampinup.net
