I used Cat's OSW template using an 8 ½ x 11 sheet of dp: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/64563? These will probably all be used as birthday cards, but were made according to the OSW fall/Thanksgiving theme. The point being that I'm thankful for my friends and that they're having another birthday as well as encouraging them toward thankfulness also.
I used everything but about one square inch of the paper, using leftover bits here and there and even making this 11th card from leftover scraps which really took a lot of thought. I had to fudge a bit on the four thin strips as I didn't have enough scrap to make them all the same width and even. The orange strip at the bottom shows through from the inside as the front of the card ends with the scallops. The leaf die seemed to be the touch that made it look like I planned the whole layout. Ha!
