Drifting Oak Leaves and Lovely Oak Thank You Notes
by Anne

At Thanksgiving, I usually send out thank you notes to friends and relatives, sort of  "thank you for being you" cards.  I made three cards to share in this post.  Here are the materials I used for the first two cards:

I began with the DRIFTING OAK LEAVES cling stamp CS2217J stamped on white cardstock with Hero Arts Cup O' Joe ink for the background, cut and mounted on a Vanilla Bean notecard.  I added a bouquet of oak leaves using the LOVELY OAK stencil 88607--I inked several leaves with Hero Arts Cup O' Joe and Butter Bar inks and then fussy-cut them out.  And I used two of the thank yous from the THANK YOU die set.

 Finished cards:

For the third card, I stenciled the Lovely Oak on white cardstock again using the Hero Arts Cup O' Joe and Butter Bar inks, stenciling extra leaves to cut out for an oak leaf bouquet.

 The last thing I added to each card was a twine bow (and a few sequins on the first two).  These were fun cards to make combining a stamp, dies, and a stencil.

Happy Crafting!
