Happy Autumn!

Hello Again! Well, I had some time to play with my Big Shot yesterday afternoon and came up with this Thank You card. Don't you just love Stampin' Up!'s Top Note die? It just makes everything look more elegant - like you put so much extra work into it - when all you really did was turn the handle on your Big Shot a couple of times!

The focal point on this card was also created with the Big Shot. I cut the Daisies #2 die twice from More Mustard cardstock, then I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and bent them up slightly for some dimension. I stacked them all together using a little 2-way glue to hold them in place, then attached them to the Top Note with a Chocolate Chip corduroy brad - LOVE these! The leaves were cut from Old Olive cardstock using the Little Leaves sizzlet die. These were also sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. To add some interest to the background, I stamped the cardfront with the Sanded background stamp using Chocolate Chip ink. The sentiment stamp is from the Thank You Kindly stamp set. I'm really pleased with how this card turned out. I just love all the dimension of that daisy!

I hope you enjoy this little taste of autumn! It is still very much summer-like here in Florida, so this is as close as I'll get to autumn for awhile.

Go out and make today a great day!

Great card Tammy - you used some of my favorte colors but alas, I don't have that flower die (yet) so I'll just have to be content admiring yours. The Big Shot is such an amazing tool.

Welcome to the world of blogging - I hope you have as much fun as I have had the last month.
