Let’s celebrate the season of gratitude with some handmade goodness! It’s amazing how many different looks you can create using just a handful of supplies. Imagination and variety of colors is all that’s needed!


To create this card, use a steel die by Concord & 9th and cardstock in a seasonal palette to cut out leaves. Layer them overlapping in one large bunch on the left side of the card. Simply glue one leaf at a time to create the layered effect. Place a few crystal sequins in various sizes along the leaves.


A sentiment with a few lines of text in black sends a meaningful message. Place the white panel on a light gray card base to create contrast. Notice how different the design looks by simply changing the color palette from a warm, autumn mix to a cooler purple one.

Thanks4SUPPLIES: Die: Concord & 9th. Stamp: Alt-New. Ink: Stampin’ Up. Sequins: Neat & Tangled. Cardstock: My Favorite Things.

Creating handmade goodness to send across the miles is a great way to bring a smile to someone you love. Keep is simple by limiting the number of supplies and techniques. Clean and simple can be bold and beautiful!
