Fall Slimline Thank You Card

It's my birthday, and I'm having a great time today playing with a Stampin' Up stamp and die bundle called "Fond of Autumn." My son recently asked me what he could get me for my birthday this year, and this is what I asked for! It came last Wednesday, but I didn't break it out until today!

I'm playing along with a few challenges while also getting some much-needed thank you cards made. I try to use card challenges as a way to try new ideas/themes, and this time I thought I would try the challenge at Let's Squash It to make a card with only 2/3 of the card being embossed. Using a slimline card worked great because my standard A2 EF (Stylized Leaves by The Paper Studio).

I colored the stamps with Copics and used Wink of Stella on the sunflowers.

Here's a look at the supplies for this card:
