Bronze Embossed Pumpkins Card

I do have another gift card holder & birthday card to share, but since this is our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend I thought I should go back to posting our Thanksgiving cards.  I used the pumpkin embossing folder again, this time with a beautiful orange shimmery Stardream card stock. Beautiful stuff. When you use a shimmery, heavy card stock like this - the card is very elegant and has a whole different feel than if I'd used regular card sock.

After embossing the trimmed panel, I wrapped it with bronze sheer ribbon and tied it off in a pretty bow.  I don't often add full bows to my cards!  I did line the envelope with a card stock panel so it would go through the mail OK.

I stamped the verse in orange inside the card - I am really loving the new Tangerine Tango shade of orange from Stampin' Up!
