1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from score line to create card.

2. Use Tip Top Taupe to stamp Hardwood image on 5-1/4" x 4" Tip Top Taupe card stock.

3. Use Big Shot and Woodland Embossing Folder to emboss 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" Sahara Sand card stock.

4. Use Big Shot and Leaflets Die to cut maple leaf from Shimmery White card stock; cut oak leaf and other leaf (don't know what the heck that one is -- maybe elm?) from Glimmer Paper.

5. Use Stampin' Sponge to apply Tip Top Taupe ink to edges of card front, Tip Top Taupe card stock, Soft Suede card stock; Sahara Sand embossed card stock, and tips of leaves (don't worry about trying to get into crevices).  Use Stampin' Sponge to daub Crushed Curry ink to Glimmer Paper leaves; repeat with Tangelo Twist.

6. Adhere Tip Top Taupe card stock to front of card; adhere Soft Suede over Tip Top Taupe; adhere Sahara Sand embossed card stock over Soft Suede.  Use Tombow Liquid Adhesive to adhere two Glimmer Paper leaves as shown.

7. Use Early Espresso to stamp fall scene on maple leaf.  Color in leaves and pumpkins with various shades of markers, and adhere over Glimmer Paper leaves with Stampin' Dimensionals.

8. Hold Linen Thread, Gold Cord, and Gold Metallic Thread together and make a double-loop bow.  Adhere over stem of maple leaf with a Glue Dot.

9.  Using Big Shot and Precision Plate, cut "grateful" from Soft Suede card stock.  Adhere as shown using either Tombow Liquid Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

That's it!  Hope you enjoy this fall-themed card.
