Free Standing Pop up card and Blog Candy

I love the sentiment that comes with the Day of Gratitude stamp set.  I had been wanting to make some sort of frame or picture with that sentiment to set out for fall.  When I saw Gilda Fellows free standing pop up card on UStamp I just had to give it a try.
The Autumn Spice Speciality DSP worked nicely for this as it is a heavier weight.  I really like the how this thicker paper looks when punched- like a nice quality die cut.
The large medallion is handcut from the paper.  I am always amazed how adding little touches like pearls instantly dresses up a project.
I have so many things to be grateful for!!!
