Grateful Heart

 I'm up on the Stamp Simply blog today with this quick and easy autumn card. The Wonderful Autumn paper stack has so many beautiful papers in it, and some of them are so pretty you hate to cover them up. I added a little text to this sheet using vintage photo distress ink and stamped the sentiment in the top corner. Two of my Jr. Church girls gave me some pretty laser cut leaves for a birthday present last month and I couldn't resist adding one to this beautiful pumpkin paper.  I inked the edges of my kraft card with gathered twigs distress ink to create a nice, dark border and make the card panel stand out a little more.

 Supplies and Tools from Stamp Simply:

Other Supplies:

  • Laser Cut Leaf (Dollar Tree)
  • Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (Ranger)

Esther that paper is fabulous and your card showcases it beautifully. The diecut leaf tied with twine is the perfect embellishment too. Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
