Pumpkin Friends

As Thanksgiving approaches, it's nice to send appreciation and thanks to your friends.  This card works perfectly for that.  The cinnamon cider background is the perfect backdrop.  The first layer is embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder.  The side panel is from the Blackberry Beauty specialty designer paper (which means there is shiny gold accents throughout one side of the paper).  The gold leaf on the bottom is from the Giving Gifts dies (there is a set of 5 leaves, and I used only one of them).  The Pretty Pumpkins bundle has the best pumpkin and sentiment.

Technique Time!  I'm calling this card a diamond gate fold card.  It opens like a gate fold, but has a diamond shape across the front, giving it an interesting look.

Designer series paper:  4 x 5-1/2   Mark at 2" and 2-5/8" (half of each side)
Basic White:  4 x 5-1/4
