Leafy Thanksgiving Card

I needed a quick Thanksgiving card so I pulled out my Pop 'n Cut dies.  Just one of the many reason's I love my Pop 'n Cuts ... you can put together a card that impresses in just a few minutes!

I used some fall themed paper and added a strip of Stampin' Up's Glimmer Paper. I know I've talked about this before - but I LOOOOOVE this stuff. It is such good quality - the glitter doesn't flake off and the shine is incredible.  Adding just that little strip (and believe me, I save all but the tiniest scraps of this Glimmer Paper) made such a difference in how the card turned out.



Since the goal was a QUICK card, I decided to leave the front as it was, and not add words or anything else. I always think that brings more attention to the Pop Up portion anyhow.


I used my new favourite insert - Karen Burniston's 'Sassy Label' ... and also her coordinating 'Sassy Label and Stitched Frames' Framelits. The words were stamped on the smallest Framelit in the set - I love that one. 


To give the inside a little 'shimmer & shine', I attached a scrap strip of the Glimmer Paper, and traced over the stitch lines and above/below the white strip with a Sakura Gel Pen. It catches the light when the card is turned, but doesn't show up well in photos.


Finally, I added some hand cut leaves from a gold foil embossed scrap and my card was done.


Done and in the mail ... I know the friend who receives this will be happily surprised.


(Remember you can always see my Sizzix Flip-it, Pop N Cut and Accordion Flip cards by looking on the right side of my blog under LABELS then scrolling down to the 'S' section.)


Supplies used: 
A2 Pop 'n Cut Base with the Sassy Label Insert - Karen Burniston (Sizzix)
Patterned Paper - The Paper Studio
Glimmer Paper - Stampin' Up
Sassy Labels and Stitched Frames - Karen Burniston (Sizzix)
Happy Thanksgiving - Verve
