Autumn Leaves Thank you Cards

One of my fav seasons is Fall!  I love the beautiful colors that Fall brings.  When I saw the Wonderfall stamp set and Autumn Accents Bigz Die (on page 33 of the Holiday Mini Catalogue) I knew that I had to get these stamping products.  Here are a couple of thank you cards I made to put into my Club Members' order bags.  I hope they like them.  

There is a big stamping trend out right now and it is called "Step It Up".  The above card is a simple design and the below card is similar but has some extras added to it to give the card a different look.  This stamping trend (Step It Up) is so fun and easy.  All you have to do is take a basic card design like the card above, add some pieces, try a technique and add elements.  On the below card I added an extra layer of card stock (pieces), the top of the acron is embossed with Early Espresso Embossing Powder (technique) and I did some paper piercing around the edges (elements).  All you have to do is add three simple things to your card layout and voila you have a different card.  Give it a try!  Make sure to post what changes you did to your card as I would love to hear about it.
