I decided to use the wreath die from Natural Prints Dies, the coordinating dies in the Nature's Prints Bundle, to make my Thank You card today.  Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a Thank You Card seemed appropriate.

The Basic White wreath is layered over Vellum that has been embossed with the Fern 3D embossing folders.  Dry Embossing Vellum is a technique that has been around awhile and seems to be making a comeback.   Kathi Ondus, my Connect to Create partner, reminded us of the technique of a few weeks ago.  When you emboss Vellum with an embossing folder it turns the embossed areas white and is really pretty.  My photo above doesn't do the technique justice, probably because I backed it with Basic White cardstock, but it is an amazingly simple and stunning technique.  If you are not familiar with it check out the video to see some additional examples.

The small Autumn Bouquet that decorates my wreath was made with several of the stamps from Nature's Prints.

The Fern was stamped with Evening Evergreen Ink, the stem behind it was stamped with Cajun Craze and the flower was stamped with Black Memento and colored with Stampin' Blends.  All images were die cut with coordinating dies.  Two long stems were cut from Gold Foil with other dies from the bundle and tucked into the bouquet to give it a bit of shimmer.

The sentiment was Heat Embossed with Gold Embossing Powder to tie in with the sprigs of gold in the bouquet.  The die used for the sentiment is also from the Natural's Prints Dies. After die cutting the sentiment, I die cut a second one from Evening Evergreen cardstock and then cut it in half horizontally and spread it apart a bit to create the small border above and below the sentiment.

The inside of the card was stamped with the same colors as used on the card front and a bouquet was created in the top left and bottom right corners.  This still leaves plenty of room for a short personized thank you note.
