Autumnal Thank You


Today I am showing you a very simple card which uses a technique which requires very minimal equipment but gives a great effect and looks beautiful!

With autumn well and truly here I have focused on natural colours and have played around with copper embossing powder. As you can see here I embossed the beautiful give thanks sentiment from the Labels to Love stamp set.

I also embossed the edges of the woodgrain dsp that I used. I wanted to give the paper a more natural and distressed vibe for this card and to really highlight the beautiful copper colour that just makes me think of autumn leaves.

This effect is really easy to achieve. I just use the Versamark ink pad and lightly scrape the edges of the paper along the pad, when I get to the corners I angle the pad towards the front of the paper a bit more to give a thicker edge. If you are careful when you do the edging you can get a very neat line but with this card the more haphazard the better.
The stamp set I used is one of my favourites from the new autumn winter catalogue. It is a really versatile set and matches perfectly with our new label punch which is perfect for gift tags! This stamp set and its matching punch are a great starter purchase as all you need is paper and ink and you can make some really effective projects.

Thanks for stopping by today. Let me know what colours you are being inspired to use by the changing weather!
