This is the first easel card I've attempted and it was alot easier than I thought it would be. After viewing some "how to" videos on YouTube - I gathered my papers, embellishments, stamps, and a bunch of other goodies. I used my Silhouette Cameo to print and cut (offset) the focal image and the leaves and flourishes. I also used my Cuttlebug to emboss some labels that I cut with some Spellbinders dies. The image was colored with Copic Markers. All in all - it was fun trying a new technique...

I love Autumn. I love the change of the seasons - even though it's been too many years since I've lived in a climate that actually had a change of seasons, and I love Thanksgiving. I love gathering with family and friends, new and old. For me, Autumn and Thanksgiving gives me a chance to pause and be thankful for all my blessings. My cards feature stamps from the Gina K Designs stamp sets Autumn Splendor, Fall Foliage, Petals & Wings, and A Year of Borders. I used GKD Pure Luxury card stock in Ivory, Dark Brown, Asparagus and Pumpkin Spice.

I also used various techniques from emboss resist to heat embossing with gold EP.
