Sparkling Leaves Pop 'n Cut Card

Good morning friends!

I have a Thanksgiving card to share today. Even though our Canadian Thanksgiving is over, and I have enough cards for our American friends & family ...  I was in the mood to make a Thanksgiving card with this beautiful sparkling leaf paper. It's just BEAUTIFUL!


I stamped the words and a few leaves on the die cut label, added a sparkling sticker and popped it up on the front of the card with foam tape.

A friend and I were just talking about how Karen Burniston's Pop 'n Cut dies have us both looking at our 12 x 12" patterned paper with fresh eyes. I used almost the whole sheet to make this card. No leftover bits to hoard or find room for - and I'm so pleased with how the card turned out. Considering it was easy and fast to make ... it's a testimonial as to how simple the Pop 'n Cut dies are to use with wonderful results. If I do say so myself, ha ha.


I trimmed 1/2" off the top and bottom edges of the inside panel, which was cut using the Wavy Label insert and decorated with the matching Framelits. I used a couple of the leftover strips at the top and bottom of the inside, hand trimming the corners to match the outside rounded ones. I added some stamping to the inside as well ... leaves and the word gratitude.




Here's another peek at those lovely sparkling leaves ...


So, she says ducking, I have my first card finished for Thanksgiving 2014.
