Welcome to the Poppystamps and Card Maker Blog Hop!
I am super excited to be part of a an amazing group of talented ladies to bring you this blog hop. If you are hopping along you should have reached me from Lezlye Lauterbach's blog.
My favorite season is Autumn and there is much you can do with it as a theme. One of my favorite things to do is to reflect and give thanks. Therefore, my offering for you today is a card themed around thankfulness.
This card is a standard A2 cardstock in a dark brown. I layered a leafy patterned paper and then a harvest golden color of card stock. Then I created an Autumn sunset with distressed inks on top of white cardstock.
I used Poppystamps Viva Tree Die  to create the tree and leaves. I die cut the tree several times in a harvest orange, gold, green and dark brown to get extra leaves. From there I cut of the leaves and attached them to the tree on the card.
Next I cut out a Poppystamps Woodland Fawn Die  in a light brown followed by the Poppystamps Woodland Fawn Die . I cut off part of the scarf that comes with  to create a shorter scarf for the baby fawn.
Finally, I stamped the Danke greeting on a cream cardstock and layers each size of the Classic Ribbons Die . After assembling the greeting, I trimmed off a little of the squared off end to shorten. Then I attached it to the card with a small green bow on a paperclip.
To finish the card, I added a cream cardstock inside with Poppystamps' So Much Cling Stamp [CS308B] greeting stamped. It may be a little difficult to see but I hand-colored the leaves, stem and greeting with markers of different colors to continue the multi-colored theme inside the card.
I hope you have enjoyed the card and are inspired to incorporate Autumn backgrounds and themes into your card-making endeavors.
