I’ve entered this card in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge 181 and chose the top row across – Leaves, Ribbon, Autumn Colors. Here is this week’s challenge board:

I made this book fold Thanksgiving card using the beautiful Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set, the Country Wreaths Dies, and the Gingham Cottage 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. I used Fall colors for my card and check out all the dimension on the wreath, which is of course the focal point of the card!

I started off with a card base in Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I cut several panels from the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper to fit the front of the card, then matted these panels to Real Red cardstock then adhered them to the card front.

Using scraps of cardstock in fall colors, I stamped the three-leaf image from the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set multiple times, matching the ink color to the scraps of cardstock. I die cut multiple leaves and some greenery sprigs using coordinating dies from the Country Wreaths Dies set. I also die cut a wreath in Evening Evergreen which was used as my base for the leaves.

I began adhering the leaves to the die cut wreath until the wreath was full. The wreath was then adhered to a white die cut square which was matted to a Brushed Metallic Cardstock in copper (more rich Fall color!). This unit was then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A bow in Faux Suede Trim was added to the top of the wreath and I added several Brushed Metallic Dots in copper around the wreath. An additional piece of Faux Suede Trim was wrapped around the book binding portion of the card and tied in a knot.

An additional sentiment was stamped on the inside panel which came from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set. I also used the greenery stamp from the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set and stamped this in the lower right and upper right corners of the panel. The panel was then adhered to a mat in Real Red cardstock then this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.

The envelope got some love, too! The envelope front was also decorated with stamped greenery and I added a piece of coordinating Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap and fussy cut around the flap to finish off the envelope.

If you’re not yet a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, I encourage you to give Paper Pumpkin a try! Here are my top 10 reasons why Paper Pumpkin should be at the top of your list.


  1. You can subscribe to Paper Pumpkin on a month-to-month basis, a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription so subscriptions are flexible
  2. Pause and resume your subscription at any time – you have control over your subscription (just be sure to take action before the 10th of the month if you don’t want the upcoming months’ kit!)
  3. Kit contents are different each month and may include cards or a project so there is lots of variety
  4. Kits arrive around the 20th of each month
  5. The kit includes everything you will need to complete your kit
  6. Instructions are included to complete kits, or you can change things up and add additional elements, rearrange kit components, etc. You have control over how you complete the kit.
  7. Kit materials contain quality products
  8. Kits can be shared with friends, or get the kids involved
  9. Once you complete your kit you will have left over materials that can be used on future projects, such as adhesives, stamps, ink spot, etc. Don’t throw away excess card punch outs…use them on a future project!
  10. Paper Pumpkin kits can be gifted, just purchase a prepaid code at and give it to someone awesome!

Have I convinced you yet? I hope so! Paper Pumpkin kits are such a great value. If you’re a new crafter, it’s also a great way to dive right in and get your feet wet since the kits come with step-by-step instructions.
