Welcome to November. Today I got back into the Autumn season and took the wreath die that was meant for Halloween and used it as a card of thanks. This would also be a wonderful way to make a Thanksgiving card too. I hope you like my simple design.
My card base is of Gina K. Designs Ivory and I die cut the wreath out of Gina K. Designs Dark Chocolate card stock. My leaves were die cut from a sheet of Ivory that I added various shades of ink to make my leaves look more the colors of Autumn.
I glued the wreath onto the base card with a 2-way glue pen and then did the same with all the leaves that I had die cut. Inside the wreath I stamped the sentiment. And on the bottom I added a chiffon brown ribbon with a double loop bow.
This panel was added to some Gina K. Design orange two-toned striped pattern paper before it was added to the main card. I also took a white gel pen and added a bit of coloring to the bird to make him look a bit more realistic.
