A CAS Thanksgiving Card

Hello friends!

I am back with a clean and simple card created with the "With Gratitude" Stamp and die recently released by Altenew.


Shop Simon Says Stamp (Stamp) here and (die) here
Shop Altenew here

For today's card you "need" both stamp and die...

 I took a simple approach-Rules of Three. I did the dry-embossing first with the embossing mat. After stamping the lovely maple leaves, I made the die cut and arranged them accordingly.

I kept the outline and sentiment brown and keep the theme in neutral.

I decided to stamp the sentiment INSIDE the maple leaf!!
How do you like it?

We are celebrating Thanksgiving with our family from US and will be visiting my father-in-law in his retirement home. It has been a year with changes (with my mother-in-law's passing in April)...
Nevertheless, we are grateful and blessed.

I very much like your sentiment inside the dry embossed maple leaf. Actually, this card sings to me. The dry embossing is spectacular, the maple leafs are stunning. All in all a perfect card.

Time is passing too quickly, so apologies for popping in late! Your falling leaves card: oh my stars, Virginia! This one has catapulted to the top spot on my favourite Autumn card of all time! Clean, crisp, plenty of white space and then...those pops-of-colour faceted leaves! Swooning! LOVE this!
