Thanksgiving Leaves

November winds are working the last of the leaves off the trees as we go to celebrate Thanksgiving.

A fun little pop-up card using Karen Burniston dies and some thread to dangle fallen leaves from in the two open ovals. The pop-up mechanism, small trees, small ovals, and grass are from the Oval Frames Pop-up set.

The leaves and large tree are from the Tiny Trees Pop-up set. And the large oval and frame are made using the Oval Crosshatch dies. While acorns are from the Autumn Elements die set, the grass pieces are scraps from another project.

I glued two leaves together with a bit of cotton thread between them and then sandwiched the threads between two of the oval pop-up frames.

The sentiment is cut from two different shades of brown using the Autumn word set.

For a place to write a personal message, I used medium crosshatched ovals with two leaves as decoration.

As with all my cards that are sent in an envelope, I have decorated the back flap with a large oak leaf from the Autumn Elements die set.
