Thank You

 

Today’s Midweek challenge over at OWH Stars and Stamps was to make a Fall Themed Thank You card… I started out with an Olive Green card base. Then I embossed a 5 & 1/8 inch by 3 & 7/8 inch piece of card stock with a sizzix embossing folder from the Thank You set, and used paper chalk to help the embossed image stick out. I then cut a 4 & 1/4 inch by 1 & 1/2 inch strip of paper and wrapped some old lace around it. Next, I designed a scalloped oval 3 & 1/8 inch by 2 & 7/8 inch and cut the oval from the base card stock material (olive green). Finally, I cut another scalloped oval (2 & 7/8 by 2 & 5/8), embossed that oval with “THANK YOU” and used my paper chalk again to make the embossing pop. As I was putting this card together, I kept trying to add oranges or yellows, and it just didn’t look right… I really like how this came out using the green tones throughout.

I suppose if people feel like this card is not Fall enough, they can vote me off the island… :-)

    It qualifies as fall to me. The green and gold together are really attractive. Very nicely done! Thanks for posting.
