Thanksgiving Cards

Hello Dreamers!
I thought I would post a few more Thanksgiving cards.  --While there is still time to make a few.  The cards shown here today will be sent out to friends/family.--Whoa!  I guess I better get them in the mail now--Thanksgiving is next week.  Boy, the days just fly by.   I did see a similar design for this card somewhere and I cased it--I can't remember where.  It may have been a magazine or Pinterest.  I changed it a bit and used different leaf stamps.

Stamps: Autumn Leaves - A Muse Studios; Sentiment- My Sentiments Exactly; Dots for the background
CS: Cream, orange, rust, and yellow
Ink: Chocolate Chip,  Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie, and Crushed Curry - Stampin'Up; 
Dot Embossing Folder
Spellbinders die
Corner Rounder Punch


  • Make card bases from CS and round opposite corners
  • Stamp the leaves, sentiment, and background dots
  • Dry emboss--I dry embossed two of the cards

The cards go together quickly and are simple enough for making multiples.
