Thanksgiving Card

I must admit, I LOVE making fall themed cards. I get to make a few Thanksgiving cards to send out to relatives that live out of town that we won't see. I like our family to know we're thinking about them even when we can't all be together during the holiday.

I knew I wanted to use the new Stampin' Up! Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper in the current catalog to create these cards. I couldn't decide which design because I love them all, so I narrowed it down to 5 of them. When you can't decide, use them all. Why not?!

The leaves nestled into the ribbon are from the Stampin' Up! set Falling Leaves. I stamped them on Very Vanilla card stock and carefully trimmed them with Paper Snips (who can live without these?) leaving a little border around them. Leaving a border pops the colors more. You can find a complete list of supplies at the bottom of this post.

My three (almost four) year old son told me last night he wanted to blog. I asked him what his site would be called? He said "Brandon's Cardtique". Sounds like a plan to me!

Have a great day and happy stamping!!!
