SSS November Card Kit

I received my November Card Kit from Simon yesterday and got right to playing!

SSS Nov Card Kit

supplies:  wood plank design paper, Flower Frenzy embossing folder, Delicata Celestial Copper ink cube, Thankful Heart stamp set, flower paper clip, all from the November kit, my own metallic copper cardstock

I've been loving wood plank design papers, and was thrilled that one of them was in the kit.  I trimmed it to A2 card size, embossed it with the included folder, and then lightly used the ink pad to add color to the raised parts.  The little cube is perfect for doing this.  The panel was mounted to a card base, and then I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine ink and embossed it to keep it from smearing on the copper panel.  I also die-cut a circle from the same copper to insert inside the flower clip, and that's where I added some adhesive to make it stick to the card.  I photographed my card with the beautiful copper metallic envelope that is also included in the kit.

Here's the kit - beautiful for fall!  It's called Thankful Heart, and includes everything you see:
