Double Trouble Guest Designer - Tall Card with Thin Dies

Hello Crafty Friends!  Today begins a new challenge on the Double Trouble Challege Blog and I've been invited to Guest Design with the Team this month!  I'm honored to be creating along side the wonderful and talented team and I'm sharing my 1st project. 

The theme is "Tall Card with Thin Dies" and I've created an Autum Themed Standard Slimline card for the challenge.  The optional Twist is:  Things that start wth "T" so I've chosen to create a card of "Thankfulness"

To start, I've stamped an image from the Memory Box "Autumn Gifts" Stamp Set on watercolor card and heat embossed with Copper Fine Detail Embossing Powder.  I used Gansai Tambi Watercolors to give the leaves the Autumn colors we all love as well as a subtle blue background.

The Slimline die is from Crafter's Companion and I've had it a few years now.  I folded a piece of 8.5" x 11" card and cut the card base; slipping one of the cutting edges over the fold so the base would have the stitching.  Lastly, I've added Gold Mine Rhinestones from Kat Scrappiness for added interest.

Please stop by the Challenge at Double Trouble and play along.  I've delighted to be Guest Designing and I'll be back in a few weeks with my second GDT project.  Until then, Happy Crafting!
