Quick and Easy Handmade Gratitude Card

|

This Quick and Easy Handmade Gratitude Card is perfect for saying thank you to the special people in your life. What better way to show you care than making something yourself?

I’m a sucker for leaves – especially in the Fall. For this card, I decided to be bold and go with a color combination I’ve never used before for leaves:

Cardmaking Color Combination in Cajun Craze, Pale Papaya and Balmy Blue

It’s pretty different, isn’t it? But I love it! If you prefer a more traditional color palette, I have several you can choose from in my Color Combination Library. Here’s how I made this card:
