MFTeaser - So Grateful

Welcome to day four of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!!

Today we're showcasing Thankful Leaves which coordinates with the Fall Leaves Die-namics. I chose the colours of fall to create this card and the layout is CPS 285. I used the Forest Branches embossing folder to create the background on the Kraft layer after stamping the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black.


I started by cutting out the leaves from Whip Cream card stock. Next I stamped the solid leaf images with Memento Bamboo Leaves, Memento Cantaloupe, and Memento Morocco. Then I stamped the veins on each leaf with Memento Rich Cocoa. I added a Hot Fudge button and some Hemp Cord loops to finish off the front.

On the inside I stamped the word Thanks numerous time along the left edge and left the rest of the space to write a message. A layer of Hot Fudge card stock helps the Kraft pop on the Whip Cream base.
