Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge Falling for Leaves

Hello!  It's time for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we are using Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, and Blackberry Bliss.


I'm ready for fall here in the south, so I used the Falling for Leaves bundle from page 45 of the Holiday catalog.  This card was easy!

Begin with a card base of Blackberry Bliss card stock.  It is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The Crumb Cake layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  The Mint Macaron layer is 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.  This paper comes from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  I just love this paper.  It was new with the annual catalog this year.  You can get any color!  It comes in the color families!

Using the Detailed Leaves Thinlits, cut the solid leaf in Crumb Cake.  The Detailed leaf is cut from Blackberry Bliss.  Don't you just love the detail?  It's fantastic!  Adhere the two layers and then use dimensionals to add it to the card.

For the ribbon, I used the Nature's Twine.  I unravelled a 5" length of twine in the Crumb Cake, Blackberry Bliss, and Mint Macaron.  Then I put some of the strands from each color together and tied a loose knot.  Add with a glue dot.

The "Thankful" is part of the Falling for Leaves stamp set.  Stamp in Blackberry Bliss.

The saying for the inside is part of Falling for Leaves.  Add some leaves at the bottom from the same set.  I did stamp off the Crumb Cake and the Mint Macaron.
