Give Thanks Leafy Trio

Today I have a trio of simple cards to show you. I made these for my boys to use as thank you notes, however they would also be great little note cards for the Thanksgiving season. They were quick and easy and I LOVE the dimension and texture achieved by using the Prima leaves.


The designer paper is Apple Cider by Imaginisce, apad of petite prints that I adore! A perfect backdrop for my larger leaves. And I also love the fresh, bright green in this pad — very refreshing! All paper pads in stock can be seen here.


I’m loving my new Prima leaves. All leaves on these cards are from a pack called October Autumn Leaves. All Prima flowers/leaves I have in stock can be seen on this post.


My leaves are adhered with SU Dimensionals and I tied on a little Burlap String and made a simple bow. All ribbon/string I have in stock can be seen here.


My beautifully scripted Give Thanks sentiment is one of 3 sentiments included in a set by JustRite called Give Thanks Nested Frames (shown below). It is made to be used with their new Clear Rectangle Stampers, making placement very easy! I used the sentiment only from this set today in the simplest of ways. It is stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, my favorite ink for crisp, clear sentiments. I carry the full line of JustRite Products. They can be seen, along with the ink, here. And if you don’t see a JustRite product you might be looking for, just ask, I have them all (unless I temporarily run out) and I dosometimes fall behind on getting graphics up and posted.


Just a close up of those leaves to show you the dimension and texture. What a quick way to add a lot of WOW to a simple card!


This is a graphic of Give Thanks Nested Frames by JustRite. It sells for $14.95. The new Clear Rectangle Stampers to use with it are $23.95. If you haven’t tried the new Clear Stampers yet, you’ll love them!!

All items used are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

To order, just email me at [email protected] with your list, your state/zip OR country so I can calculate postage, and I’ll get back to you with an invoice.

15% OFF on ALL ribbon purchased BY THE SPOOL runs through the entire month of September. All ribbon I carry is quality ribbon by May Arts (with the exception of the bridal tulle and ribbon sold on cards to coordinate with papers). It’s a gret time to plan your fall/winter projects and stock up on quality ribbon at an affordable price!


As always, I thank you for stopping in! We are feeling the crisp, cool autumn air which is so very refreshing! It just made me feel good to play with these Autumn Leaves today! Wishing you some fun, too, at whatever pleases you! See you soon!
