- Thankful

Hello & Happy Wednesday Everyone!
I created this lovely Fall card with a
Leaf card design I found at the Silhouette Store...
I altered it a little, so I could use it as a stencil....

I really like this "Thankful" Die - I die cut it out 3x's to give it more dimension - I die cut a Leaf Stencil Frame from the Silhouette Store - added some repositional adhesive to the back of it and attached it to another white card base - I used my blending tool and 3 of my favorite distress inks to blend it all together - When I was happy with the blending, I lifted the Leaf frame to show off the pretty leaves - then I die cut it out with a stitched card mat die - I added Brass Distress Spray, using a splatter paint brush - it dried super quick
Then I cut out a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 designer paper (Rust Color)
Added it to the Brown Card base (A2) 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Cut a piece of White Fun Foam and adhered that to the back of my leaf design (for Dimension) then attached it to the card - Added my Word Die Sentiment, then attached a couple of sequins

This totally Screams FALL!! Love the look! :)
