Stampin' Up! Day of Gratitude

I fell in love with this set and this patterned paper as soon as I looked at the new Holiday Mini Catalog, yet I've not found myself using it very much.  I'm glad I got it out yesterday and played with it.  I love the richness of the Autumn Spice textured patterned paper!  And Cajun Craze! Oh my! What a lovely fall color!
Do you like what I've done with the Day of Gratitude Set and Autumn Spice paper?  Coordinating products sure make it easy, that's one of my biggest loves about Stampin' Up!

Here are the dimensions:
Card base in Early Espresso is the standard 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded in half and creased with a bone folder.  The first layer of pattered paper is cut from one piece (it's striped on one side and has the leaf pattern on the other), 5 1/4 x 4 inches.  Then I cut it at 1 1/2 and flipped one side over. All edges were inked with Early Espresso with a Stampin Sponge. The leaf stamp was stamped in the corner as seen with Cajun Craze classic ink.  Another leaf was stamped onto a scratch piece of the same patterned paper and cut out.
The focal piece with the sentiment is a piece of very vanilla cut to 2 1/4 x 2 3/4 inches.  The patterned paper under that was cut at 2 1/2 x 3 inches.  The Cajun Craze layer under that was cut at 2 5/8 x 3 1/8.  All edges were inked with Early Espresso using a Stampin Sponge.
The sentiment was stamped using Stampin Write markers in Cajun Craze and Early Espresso.  I used Early Espresso taffeta ribbon layered with Chantilly Crochet Trim and tied around the focal piece.  I used a large Antique Brad on top of the ribbon. I also used this layered ribbon and trim on top of the first layer of patterned paper at the seam.
I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch to punch a piece of 4 inch Cajun Craze and then cut it in half and adhered the pieces just under the layered ribbon .
I adhered the layered focal piece with Stampin Dimensionals and the cut out leaf with Stampin Dimensionals.
