This is an easy card with a lot of impact. I plan to use it for a Thanksgiving card. It could also be used for a sympathy card or a birthday card.

Cut leaf shape from wood textures paper.

Cut stitched shape square, use the one that leaf just fits in.

Adhere burlap ribbon around the bottom portion of Soft Suede card front.

Adhere Soft Suede card front to Early Espresso card base.

Adhere Merry Merlot square in top center of card front.
