Give Thanks

This weeks mashup over at the Friday mashup is one of my favorites. Heat embossing. I just love this technique. and we need to mash this up with a thank you. I can do this.

I had decided to go with a fall theme. But something happen with my colors. I some how went from orange red and yellow to Not quite navy and rich razzleberry. I don't know why it just happened. but any ways 

I choose to use an Angel Company stamp called Autumn Swirl for the background and I heat embossed it with gold. I even gold embossed the edges. Then I colored the leaves in with with Razzleberry and Not quite navy markers. The Give Thanks is from the Stampin up set called Holiday Best. I also gold embossed this as well as the edges. I added a piece of satin ribbon and some gold brads. Then matted it to a piece of Not quite navy and add mounted this to a rich razzleberry card base.


I hope you like my card. And remember to let the people in your life know how important they are to you.
