It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players! This week, the lovely Claire has a theme challenge for us: Give Thanks! How perfect for this time of year!
I love creating fall/Thanksgiving thank you cards. For this one, I wanted to create something elegant, yet easy. The result is indeed both of these things. I hope you enjoy today’s easy and elegant thank you card!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This is such a fun card to make. Very Vanilla cardstock serves as the card base for this card. Copper Foil is used as the matting layer, and of course it was used for the elegant die cut leaves which were created using the Detailed Leaves thinlits. A little copper metallic thread serves as an accent, as does a double Merry Merlot & Copper reversible ribbon bow.
The sentiment is from the Falling For Leaves stamp set. It was inked in Merry Merlot, and stamped onto Whisper White. Layering Circles framelits were used to cut it out, and to die cut the Copper Foil scalloped circle. As a little helpful hint, make certain no stray dog hairs are on the stamp as you ink it up, as it will cause a little line like we see here between the “t” and “h”. (wink)
The real scene stealer on this card is the background texture. I used Shimmery White embossing paste and the Brick pattern from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks collection to create it. It’s absolutely stunning in person, and so easy to do. Just make certain you allow it to dry completely before continuing with the rest of the card.
Easy and elegant! Don’t you just love that textured background? I’ll be anxious to hear what you think, so don’t forget to leave a comment. And don’t forget to visit the rest of the Design Team for more inspiration!
