I think it’s safe to say, this is an Autumn card, since Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper provided the acorns. But, is it a corny thank you card?


I hope my husband likes it, because he was needing some masculine thank you cards, and I made it with this purpose in mind.  I started with his favorite, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, and a Very Vanilla card base.

I needed inspiration for the lay-out, and Fab Friday happened to have what I thought could be a winner.


I used one of the Layering Oval Dies for the oval window, and a slightly larger, scalloped one for the frame. I like how the acorns are flying around in there. 

The leaf was cut with a Seasonal Layers die, adding just a touch of vibrant color. Do you recognize the Designer Series Paper? (hint: Painted Autumn.)

The “Thank You” is stamped from the Banners For You stamp set, and cut with a die from Bunch of Banners. This is a die set I’ve found to come in very handy, and it coordinates with several stamp sets.


Thank you Fab Friday for the sketch inspiration. I think my husband will approve.
