Autumn Leaf Gift Card Holder

I found more seldom (never?) used dies. ..sort of switched over to the thinner dies...and had a great idea to use up paper scraps.
I used the Brenda Walton leaf die to cut out the large leaves and glued on the words die cut from foil card stock (DCWV 6x6 pad).
Next, I tied on some fancy yarns and rustic Heiko ribbon (from Celebrations).
Finally,  I stamped the sentiment onto the label (cut with the die) and rubbed on Viva metallic paste/Distress ink on the edges of the labels.
At first, I was just going to use these leaf cards as Thanksgiving greetings or perhaps as place cards for the turkey feast. Gratitude notes can be written on the backs of the leaves.  One of the die cut leaves was too wide to fit in the pocket envelope so I turned it into a tag.  That reminded me of how grateful I am to have so many blogland friends who leave me lovely comments.  As a thank you, I am rewarding one of them with a $25 gift card from HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  The recipient will be chosen randomly from the comments left for me in the month of October. Please visit this site again to see if the lucky person is you.

These are lovely. I especially love the textures with the fancy yarn. And it's always great to give some love to rarely used supplies.;)
