Fall Thanks

Good morning friends.  It's a little nippy in my 'neck of the woods" this morning, so I think a "Fall" feeling card is in order today!  Made this card (and treat box) for my good friend Sue as a thanks for placing an order a few weeks back when I was the hostess for the SU! club I belong to...it's always nice to show some homemade love when someone does something nice for you! :0)  I used PTI's "Polka Dot Parade #6" for this card, and although I struggled a bit with centering the teeny tiny leaf stamps on the teeny tiny leaf dies, it still turned out really cute.  Take a look:


If you click on the picture, you can see better the stamped designs on the leafs.  My design paper (The Paper Studio) dictated my color choices for this card: Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Marigold Morning, and Old Olive (all SU!).  My tag was cut from my Cricut using the DonJuan cartridge.  I ran my tree base through my Cuttlebug with a Darice woodgrain embossing folder to give it a bit more dimension, and also used the embossing folder on the piece of Early Espresso cardstock behind the tag.  I finished with a banner and Pumpkin Pie button (and twine) and a seam binding ribbon I colored with a Copic (Y17).  I really like how bright and cheery it turned out!  Had to add a little treat box with my card too, so here's a picture of both together:


Just the simple little treat boxes you can make with a half sheet of cardstock to coordinate with the card.  The little acorn is a PTI die and the Thank You on the acorn is from PTI's "Tiny Tags" stamp set.  (the little treat box is filled with candy corn and peanuts...one of my favorite fall treats!)

That's all for today friends, but I'll probably be back tomorrow as I have another snowman card for the Merry Monday challenge....I have way too many snowman stamps to limit myself to just one snowman card!  I've also been making some Halloween cards that I'll share with you next week, so stay tuned for more inspiration!  Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
