Card Creating Tuesday! Falling for you card

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today is card creating Tuesday and the design team were to make Thanksgiving cards or place cards. I decided that I would make a little Thanksgiving card for my Husband to let him know how much I am thankful for him.

So Lets get started.

For my card I used a craft card base to make an A2 card which measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 when folded.

Then I cut my mat layers. The plaid is cut at 4" by 5 1/4
The Orange layer is 3" by 3 3/4
The Green layer is  which I then ran thru the cuttle bug using a folder( from the paper studio sold at hobby lobby) before placing my paper in the folder I inked the folder front(the side with the words) with shabby shutter distress ink. Then I carefully closed the folder and ran it thru the bug.
I love that effect.

I then cut the tree using Create a Critter 2 from page 63 at 3 1/2".

The cuts

I then used a studio g stamp to emboss the sentiment on green card stock.
I then used the deco scallop punch  to punch a border out in the same orange card stock as the leaves.

Next I adheared all the layer together
 Then added the tree with foam tape.

and that finished up my card. Here it is again.
