T he Brightly Gleaming paper paired with a copper foil leaf makes for a beautiful card. This is the Thanksgiving card I am sending out this year. I love the sentiment on the front of the card. It came from a stamp set I used once and was sure I would never use again! It is from the Barn Door stamp set, I made one card with with Barn Door stamp and dies. It was too detailed for me. I thought I was done with that stamp set. It just shows that it is good to look at different ways to use a stamp set.
