Create this colorful fall thank you card using the Forever Flourishing and Amazing Thanks Dies by Stampin’ Up!


  • Soft Suede Card Stock: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, scrap for “thanks”
  • Pumpkin Pie Card Stock: 4” x 5-1/4”, scrap for leaves
  • Very Vanilla Card Stock: 3-13/16” x 5-1/16”, 4” x 5-1/4”, scrap for “thanks” shadow.
  • Old Olive Card Stock: Scrap for leaves
  • Crumb Cake Card Stock: 1-3/4” x 4”, scrap for leaves
  • Daffodil Delight Card Stock: Scrap for leaves
  • Ribbon: 12”


  1. Fold a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Soft Suede CS in half to create a card base. Glue a 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Very Vanilla CS to the back inside of the card base.
  2. Die-cut and punch a variety of leaf shapes using Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie CS. Randomly glue the leaf shapes to a 3-13/16” x 5-1/16” piece of Very Vanilla CS with Multipurpose Liquid Glue; allow to dry completely.  Using the large fern die-cut, add texture to the front of the card stock piece by dry embossing in several locations.  The “sandwich” for dry embossing using a die-cut is: Plate #1, plate #2, card stock piece facing upwards, die-cut facing down, Silicone Craft Sheet, and plate #4.  Glue the embossed card to the center of the 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Pumpkin Pie CS.  Mount to the center front of the card base.
  3. Die-cut “thanks” from a piece of Soft Suede CS and a shadow “thanks from a piece of Very Vanilla CS. Glue the die-cuts together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Mount to the center top of a 1-3/4” x 4” piece of Crumb Cake CS.  Wrap a piece of ribbon around the card stock below the thanks die-cuts and tie a knot; trim ribbon ends.  Glue the card stock piece to the card front slightly above center.
  4. Randomly add Gold sequins to the card front.
  5. Add a couple of die-cut leaves to the bottom right corner of the Very Vanilla CS piece on the inside of the card.
