Thankul: Embossed Falling Leaves

Hi Everyone!

Sorry it has been a few days since I posted. Last week was a bit of challenge in the mom world for me. As you may remember, my daughter had her wisdom teeth taken out last week and unfortunately, she had a rough recovery, so lots of TLC was necessary. She finally turned a corner this weekend and seems to be getting back to normal. I did get some crafting done as well; but just finally got around to getting some photos done this morning.

The card for today is an Autumn themed card. I will admit, I am not one to make a lot of autumn/ Halloween type cards. I just don’t send them out to people, so they’re not really of great use to me.
Usually the only reason I make them is to have a few things to show on my blog during the Fall season. I also try to make them multi-functional such as a Thank you card.

I used the Falling Leaves Background Stamp from Simon Says Stamp. This is an older stamp from last year’s Stamptember release. This stamp is perfect for a background focal point. I decided to heat emboss it and I actually did it several times before decided to mix it up a bit by using two powders: Enchanted Gold, and Copper. The copper embossing matched well with the scrap of copper paper I found in my stash.

I originally white heat embossed the “Thankful” sentiment on to the copper paper; but made some mistakes, so I trimmed out the sentiment and attached it to a new piece of paper. I added some tiny hearts that I punched out and then added some sparkle with my Spectrum  Noir Glitter pen and topped with glossy accents. I added some dashed white lines around the card edge as well as the bottom line of the copper sentiment piece. I added some little gemstones and sequins for final embellishments.

Have a great day everyone!
