Truly Grateful Card with Leaves

Sometimes I think coming up with the blog post title is harder than actually creating a handmade card. This title is simply descriptive, Truly Grateful Card with Leaves. To create this card I used a couple of my favorite things, which include the Stampin' Up! Woodgrain embossing folder and the Gently Falling stamp set. I embossed the Early Espresso sandable cardstock with the woodgrain folder and attached it to a kraft card base. The accent colors are Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Very Vanilla cardstock with the Burlap ribbon detail. I used the rock-n-roll technique to stamp the leaves and then fussy-cut them and adhered them directly to the Very Vanilla cardstock. It took a little time to fray all the edges of the burlap ribbon and then I zig zag stitched it at the top to the card.  The last piece was the Truly Grateful sentiment which I punched with an oval punch and layered it with the scallop oval punch and adhered with dimensionals. Even though this card is casual in it's design, I hope you feel it's warm with texture and color. Well, until next time, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
