Cheers to the Season is a stamp set that could be easily overlooked in the Sept.-Dec. mini catalog. It includes images for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. I added a little extra color to the leaf with daubers.

Card Base: Cut Pecan Pie 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.

Card Mat: Cut Basic White paper 4 X 5 ¼.

Card Front: Cut Pecan Pie Gorgeous Gingham 3 ⅞ X 5 ⅛. Attach the card front paper to the white mat. Emboss these papers with the Cross Hatch Basics embossing folder.

Use the largest square in the Stylish Shapes Die set to cut a large white square. Stamp the leaf image from Cheers to the Season stamp set with Daffodil Delight ink in the center of the white square. Use daubers to add Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin pie ink to the edges of the stamp and stamp again. [I used my Stamparatus to make sure my leaf stamp was aligned correctly.]

Attach the stamped square to the card front with dimensionals. Add 3 Neutral Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Card Insert: For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Basic White 4 X 5 ¼. Cut a piece of print paper used on the front of your card ½ X 4 (5 ¼). Attach to the top of the card insert. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
