Stampin' Up Season of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project, Acorny Thank You, Sheltering Tree, Leaflets

The rain clouds have moved in today; but, they look more like snow clouds.  It's supposed to be in the 60's again today so it's too warm to snow yet.  The clouds are so dark looking; but, no rain yet!

My share for today is an Envelope Card Holder that I made for the cards and envelopes that I showed on my blog yesterday.

The Stampin' Up products that I used are Season of Gratitude Paper Pumpkin Kit, Acorny Thank You & Sheltering Tree Stamp Sets and Leaflets Framelits Dies.

Let's take a look:

I love the subtle elegance of my project.  The Very Vanilla Cardstock just makes it look so clean and elegant.

I made my Card and Envelope Holder using one of the envelopes from Octobers Monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit called Season of Gratitude.  I showed how to make the Envelope Holders on my blog last week.  If you missed it, you can click on the link below to check it out:

Here's a close up picture of my Card and Envelope Holder.

I used SU's 5/8" Burlap Ribbon for a Belly Band.  I then wrapped a strand of Garden Green and a strand of Gold Baker's Twine around the Burlap Ribbon and tied it off.

I tied a triple Bow with more strands of the Garden Green and Gold Baker's Twine and tied on two of SU's Mini Antiqued Pinecones with the two Garden Green ends.

I adhered 3 sequins to the upper left corner of my Card and Envelope Holder using SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle.

Here's a look at the back of my holder. 

Remember, you can leave the back flap standing up, tuck it inside the Holder or fold it back as shown in the picture above.

Here's a look at the inside:

There's plenty of room in the inside of the holder.

Here's another look at the cards and envelopes that I designed for the inside of my Holder:




And, another look at the Envelopes: 

I just LOVE how my project turned out.

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!



I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges, using them for their own card classes and (using them on their blogs as their own creations) - Please give credit where credit is due.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!


If you are interested in purchasing Stampin' Up products, you can order from me on-line at and please choose me, Lynn Gauthier, as your Demonstrator.
