    I’m with Debbie H! Need more magnetic refills for all the tiny dies like the leaf for this tutorial. Such a cute idea and a beautiful card.

    Someone else asked about how to tie the double bow. Could you give us a quick tutorial on that please?

  12. Kaye Lystad Kirk says:

    Very pretty, Anna, and looks pretty simple to accomplish. I just need to find the right ribbon to use on the card.

    ***Anna, would you consider selling your holiday ribbons separately that go in your ribbon box for those of us that already have purchased your ribbon box with the pastel ribbons inside it?****

  13. Grama Pei says:

    Anna and Crew, I hope your Thanksgiving celebration was joy-filled and that peace and contentment descended upon your busy lives for a while… What a pretty card for Fall/Thanksgiving! LOVE it! I am excited that the previews are starting next week! YAY! Made my day to hear that!

    Hi Anna, enjoyed the great card. I am going to make one just to keep as a sample for next year. You know Christmas is coming and I have to get busy with those cards. Love you, (I say that to friends)

    Product Request … Noticing, that this card is from the
    ” Perfect Patterns For Him Cards & Envelopes ” makes me ask … Would you please design more, base cards — cards like the one shown, but title them — ” All Occasion ” — Seems, like these cards are much more than ” For Him ” — and it kind of gives you a funny feeling, when wanting to use them for women, etc. — because of the name, and they are so worthy, as they really are ” The Perfect All Occasion Base Cards. ” Your products are so, Amazing, Beautiful & Elegant ! I Just Love Them !

  16. SheliaP says:

    Such a pretty card … need to know how to tie the bow though. I’ve tired and all I come up with is frustration and a mess. I just can’t get it and it makes me bonkers.

  17. Sharon Bounds says:

    Hi,

    Hi Anna and Team,

    Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving. Love the wreath card. Very unusual and beautiful. I want you to know now I intend to steal this idea. Thank you in advance for all the complements I will be getting. See you in January.

  28. Maureen says:

    What a great tutorial , it’s great how you show us such simple ideas that turn into magic, wishful thinking dies have other dies that can be made into wreaths, I never thought of that, that’s why you and your team are so marvelous, endless ideas. Thank you for these weekly blogs, I just love them. I agree with Debbi I hope magnetic refills will be offered soon. Happy holidays to you your team and all your followers.

  29. Linda Kirchner says:

    Holy cow! I can see this wreath in Autumn colors topping the napkin at every Thanksgiving table place. This is so beautiful.

  30. Chris H. says:

    I wish I would have seen this before thanksgiving. It is beautiful. I do need to learn to make bows as perfect as you do Anna.

  31. Mary Ann Larson says:

    Love it. I need to see if I have that die in my stash! I really want to learn to make your bows! Looking forward to all the goodies coming out in 2018!

  32. Deidra says:

    What a great card. Sometimes at this time of the year I need card ideas for cards that are not strictly Thanksgiving or Christmas. This one is perfect for those occasions. Looking forward to the 2018 Product Previews!

  33. Debbi H says:

    Hi Anna. What a lovely way to use leaves for something other than fall décor. I can’t wait to see what you’re bringing us in the new year. I hope it’s magnetic refills for the die storage notebooks. You told me they were on the design teams to do list ;-D
