Thanks and Welcome!

What a great month it's been!

One of my favorite things to do is welcome new team members to my Trinity Design Stampers Team and this month, there were a LOT of cards and team handbooks to send out! I'm so proud of my downline team, they've really hit their stride with inviting their stampin' friends to join our family - this Mama is so excited for them!

I also love to send a special card to all of my clients who place an order through my website. Since I don't get to see them in person, I want them to get a warm "Thank You" because I appreciate their business SO much.

This month, I decided to use the same card for both groups of special people, I just changed out the greeting. Here, take a look:

It's actually a pretty simple card element wise, but as with many things, it's the little details that make all the difference.
My card base is Sahara Sand cardstock and I stamped the front with the Woodgrain Background stamp in Sahara Sand ink.
The leaves were cut out with the new Autumn Accents Big Shot Die in Riding Hood Red, More Mustard and Always Artichoke cardstock. Once they were cut out, I used a variety of Embossing Folders for my Big Shot to give them texture and depth - Houndstooth, Chevron and Argyle.

Both greetings came from a special stamp set that all of us who attended our National Convention last year received - Workshop Words. I stamped the greetings with Riding Hood Red and punched them out with either the Scalloped Circle Punch or the Extra Large Oval Punch. The edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink and they were added to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. The little button is from the new Naturals button pack and is tied with some Linen Thread. I adhered them with Glue Dots.

For a fun final touch, I used my Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker with the Color Spritzer Tool and added a few spritzes for a little more texture.

This would be an easy card to recreate for any Fall occasion, just change out the greeting!

Well, I'm off to the studio today - scrapbook designing for next week!
Have a wonderful day and go stamp something fun!
