Using a 5" x 3 1/2" piece of light card stock, adhere it to a piece of 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" brown card stock. Center it in the bottom half of the card under the opening....and mark with a light pencil...the edge where you will be stamping.
Take the card back out and stamp the boughs and pinecones.
Put a very thin line of adhesive on each side of the inside of the bottom flap. Adhere it to the back. Add a piece of brown stitched ribbon to the top of the bottom half.
Then, stamp Merry Christmas at the top of the inside card.
Hope the directions make sense. I can see using this idea for different occasions.

This card, I think, could be used for either a male or female for their birthday and you can even change up the colors of card stock and designer paper.

Adding a little ribbon and a sentiment.......and you're good to go.
I love Fall......and I have a few more cards to share and then it's mostly Christmas after that.

Using the Top Note die, you create the scarecrows head. Then, using the Top Note die, again, you create her hat and brim from designer paper.
Using a small oval punch, you cut it in half for the eyes, black circles for the pupils, and a triangular shape for the nose.
I had fun recreating this card for several people. You can change it up and make the scarecrow a 'he' and give him/her different accents.
Hope you have fun doing this cute card!!

Then we used the Delicate Doilies die cut out of Very Vanilla card stock, 2 3/8" scalloped circle punch and the 1 3/4" circle punch to make the center design.
Very quick and easy card, yet so elegant.
I love this Specialty paper. The inside is just plain, so you can stamp on it.

We used Marina Mist card stock for the base card. We created a background on the card by stamping the steam stamp all over.
Then, we used a strip of designer paper and punched a circle using the 2 1/2" circle punch out of Cherry Cobbler card stock and a scalloped circle punched out of the same designer paper.
We added the Cherry Cobbler sweater trim.
Quick card to send to a friend to tell them to share a 'cup of coffee' with you.

The technique is called Rock N Roll. To get this effect, first ink up your stamp with the lighter color and then, very carefully, just roll the edges of your stamp in the darker ink and stamp onto glossy card stock.
We used the Gently Falling stamp set from SU.
So I wanted to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING with this card!!!
Hope you all have a wonderful day full of thanks!!!
