Vintage Leaves Thankful Card

Good day! It's been raining all day here in Oklahoma so I seized the opportunity to play in my craft room. It's a little sad to admit but I've had these Vintage Leaves stamped and cut out on my desk for at least three weeks. I've been busy sewing and never got around to finishing the intended card. Better late than never I guess! This Vintage Leaves Thankful Card was made with all Stampin' Up! supplies. The patterned papers are retired but all the stamps and twine are currently available.

The stamp sets used include:
  • Vintage Leaves (138802)
  • Acorny Thank You (139718)  
For the card base a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock was used and the edges were distressed with Crumb Cake ink. A layer of Soft Suede was matted to the patterned paper that was also distressed with Crumb Cake. The stamped pieces were attached and the twine wrapped around the matted panel before the entire piece was attached to the card base. That's it! 

This Vintage Leaves Thankful Card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. This is so cute and perfect for Fall! Love the leaves with your sweet acorn- thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges!

  2. Love your beautiful fall card with the fabulous colors and the acorn. Thank you for joining us for the Classy Cards N Such challenge.

  3. Andrea, this is so lovely. The blaze of color on the pretty leaves looks fantastic against the dp. Also love the 'xstich' border that added the transition from the neutral bkground color to those gorgeous leaves. Well done, just a beautiful card. TFS
