Card #1: Gratitude for Days Thank You Cards

featuring the Gratitude for Days Pockets on pg 38 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I just love these pretty pockets, and you may remember that I used all of the orange, yellow and green ones for my Halloween Founder's Circle swaps.. so I had all the blue and gray ones left over for Customer Thank You cards!

The kit comes with the pockets, journaling cards for inside the pockets, and some stickers, twine and clips so that you can make this into a "30 days of gratitude" banner if you wish.  See all the details on pg 38 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

So who am I grateful for? Well, LOTS of people, but definitely at the top of my lists are my amazing Stampin' Up! Customers.  These are a few of the Thank You Cards I mailed out for customer orders in August.

My 2nd Project for our tour today:

Thanks card featuring the Seasonally Scattered thanks image and leaves and acorns from the For All Things Stamp set. Both sets can be found in the Holiday catalog (pgs 41 and 43).

The trick on this simple thanks card is to avoid stamping over the word thanks with the leaves, so that it remains white and crisp with a lot of contrast to the pretty fall colors.
