Thanks for Giving card

The current challenge at Impression Obsession is 'Tis the Season.  My card is for the Thanksgiving season; I may possibly make another card later for the Christmas season.

Here's how I made the card:

To make the leaves, I heat embossed some copper embossing powder after stamping the Tree Line stamp on white card stock.   Then I made a mask so I could line up the leaf shape and see exactly what embossed areas I would be getting inside the leaf shape.  I did this for both the larger leaf and the smaller leaf.

After making the mask and lining it up where I wanted it cut, I then slid the die back into the cutout and taped it in place.  Then I ran it through my die cutting machine.

After all the leaves had been cut, this is what the Tree Line stamp looked like (the "grey" leaves are actually my cutting plates beneath the paper).
