Truly Grateful, Cut Up! FMS98

This Truly Grateful card expresses how, 
"Truly Grateful" I am for all that Stampin' Up! has brought to me.  
It has brought me income, cruises, trips, all the crafting supplies I could want and the "bestest" part (I know that is not a word!) are the people I've met along the way.  Many started as co-workers or customers...and are now friends!  I still see and chat with people I met in my first year as a demonstrator!    
THANK YOU ALL, for your support and loyalty!  
You allow me to do and share what I love! 

OK...enough cyber hugging ;-)

I couldn't pass this set up!  So many great elements!

Perfect for a challenge!
Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper (132184) is a perfect partner to anything fall!!  This paper really looks like a sweater.  It seemed natural to emboss it with the Needlepoint Border (129383) 

I'm all for easy, but sometimes you just have to cut something out by hand to get the look you want. 
Stampin' Up!'s Paper Snips (103579) are amazing.  They make quick work of the cut out.

I loved the look, so I cut out the other elements too!  Hand cutting really isn't that bad.  I think it get a bad wrap when people try to do it with the wrong tools.

The sentiment is from the Truly Grateful set and has that rustic look.  I decided to distress the edges with Stampin' Up!'s Stampin' Distress Tool (127562) a great tool for just $4.95.

I'm a clean and simple gal.  But sometimes I need a little texture!
This is definitely a card to hold in person.
