An Autumn “Thankful” card

The Fall holidays are upon us!  Fall is my very favorite season of all.  The leaves are turning their brilliant golden, rust, red and warm, earthy colors.  Aren’t they extraordinary?  It is just breathtaking to see some of these trees, especially if you live in certain parts of the U.S. where those trees are unbelievably gorgeous.  I haven’t had the opportunity to venture up to the New England states in the Fall YET, but I sure plan to! Fall means sitting by the fireplace, romping in the crispy leaves on the ground on a cool Fall day, pumpkins, apple cider, warm fuzzy socks, light loungey sweater and jeans.  Oh and hot Apple Crisp!  Yes, can’t forget hot apple crisp from all those golden apples that have fresh fallen from their beautiful tree branch.  Okay…I’m getting hungry now, so I better hurry and get this post written so I can go spring for an apple and dream of hot Apple Crisp!  It will be on the menu in the coming week! For sure, guaranteed.

Here’s the scoopy doop better known as:

Debbie’s Details:  (deets!)

I am in love with the font on this sentiment ~ THANKFUL.  Isn’t is just gorgeous and alone standing in all its glory?  It is from one of the Hosts sets that feature a few other seasons. You will see this set at the back of the Holiday catty.  If you reach a certain amount of Host dollars on your order, you will have the option of ordering this beautiful set.   I will be using this quite a bit, so you will see it more than once.  Isn’t that exciting, though?!  🙂

I actually stamped all the leaves you see here!  Yes, with a leaf image from A Little Something stamp set!  That one, also has images to use for the other upcoming holidays, too!  This is just an awesome Holiday catalog and if you don’t have it in your hot little mitts, then let me know.  I sad if you don’t.  You are MISSING out!  I took that little stamp, it has five tee NIGHntsy (means super cute and tiny!) leaves on it. (this is a word, a Debbie Dean word, you can feel free to add it to your vocabulary brain tank), I inked it up with Cajun Craze!  A great Fall color! I used Very Vanilla for the top layer and then cropped out using my Ovals Framelits for both the Early Expresso and the Very Vanilla layer using them!  They nest so nicely, don’t cha think?

I used Early Expresso for the card base, then Very Vanilla and then CAJUN CRAZE and embossed with our Woodgrain embossing folder.  It is one of my “go to” embossing folders because I love the look and I like vintage, woodsy things, too!

Do you see the oh so adorable ACORN?  I thought you did and I bet you’re wondering how did I get that all cut out so perfectly, right?  I used our NEW Acorn punch!  It is in a bundle with the stamp set Acorny Thank You!  New in the Holiday catalog!  Woo hoo! I punched the bottom piece out of Cajun Craze and then ran it through the Woodgrain embossing folder for some texture and then decided to punch out the top piece with our NEW corrugated Kraft paper to also give a bit more texture!  I place the little wooden leaf embellishment atop and tied a cute bow using the gold/very vanilla baker’s twine to give it a little pizazz! (with that gold in it, just makes it a bit more special!)

The top layer piece I used dimensionals and for the cute Acorn, too.  Dimensionals!  Gives a pop up look and can make your cards pop up and be proud to show the world!  And it makes them happy, too.  🙂
