autumn card

Here in Canada it’s Thanksgiving, so I’m sharing this appropriate autumn card with you! It uses the Stampin’ Up! bundle Among the Branches, which includes the Among the Branches stamp set and the Woodland Embossing Folder. You may have noticed this card on the table during my appearance on Morning Live – I made it really quickly the evening before! After embossing the cardstock, I used a sponge dauber to run Early Espresso ink over the tree trunks, and stamped on just a few leaves. Stamping negative impression sentiments onto coloured cardstock can add an extra layer of colour to your projects, rather than just stamping on Very Vanilla or Whisper White – not that there’s anything wrong with that, but sometimes it’s nice to do something a little different. A little gold thread and it’s done!

I hope that you are able to spend some time with friends and family over the long weekend. I plan on enjoying dinner with family and taking some time to reflect on my many blessings. Happy Thanksgiving!
