My take on the Stamping 411 challenge

I had time yesterday to play along with the Stamping 411 operators but am just now getting time to post my card. I wanted to use this wonderful Thanksgiving verse that is part of the Grateful Greetings stamp set in the Stampin' Up! Holiday mini catalog. I cut out Handsome Hunter and Whisper White cardstock using the Top Note die and then ran them through a second time positioning the top note so it was cut in about thirds. I then removed the outer part on the white note and distressed the edges using Stampin' Up!'s distressing tool. I stamped the verse on the white label with Chocolate Chip ink then layered the white on the Handsome Hunter piece. For the big leaf I ran a piece of Ruby Red cardstock through the Big Shot using one of the plates from the Texturz Plate Kit #4. Then I cut it out using the Leaves #2 die. The smaller leaves are parts of the Sweetest Stem Embosslit. All these parts were adhered to a base card of Soft Suede. An overhand knot of Dusty Durange Dotted grosgrain ribbon and highlights of Champagne Shimmer paint finish off the card. Thanks for the cool challenge, operators. Thanks to my visitors for coming to see me on my blog. Sue
