Fall Thanks by Laura C

I'm thankful for so many, friends, home, and
so much more!! And then in the crafty realm.....I am sooooo
thankful for Tim Holtz.....ok, silly, I know.....but do you love
his inks as much as I do? And how amazing are these limited
edition fall colors?? I paired these with the awesome Mariposa
papers, and came up with this:

The soft look of these inks and the colors, are the perfect
match for the Mariposa paper!

The details: Using the 12x12 Mariposa Solid Cardstock,
I made a 4&1/4"x5&1/2" card base. Next was 2 of
the mats from the Mariposa Mat Stack. The peachy
patterned paper was the first layer (cut at 4"x5&1/4"),
Next was plain black cardstock cut to a 3&7/8" square.
The botanical "print" is from the mat stack as well (see
first pic above), I used the Ripe Persimmon and the
Gathered Twigs Distress Ink on this piece, then
trimmed it, rounded the corners and layered it onto
the black cardstock.

Finishing touches, of some seam binding ribbon, a
button, some Doodle Twine, Want2Scrap pearls,
and a stamped sentiment, and it's a sweet little
thank you....or it would make a great card for
any occasion....just depending on the sentiment.

Hope you get some fall scrappy time and can find
some inspiration here on the Cutter's Creek blog!
