CAS Day Of Gratitude Thank You

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope you’re enjoying a blessed day with your loved ones. Here’s a quick CAS Thank You card I made while I was making some Thanksgiving cards for my family. I started with a Very Vanilla card base. Then I cut another layer of Very Vanilla and ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. (That adds so much depth and dimension to a simple card.) After the embossing, I punched a circle with the 1-3/4” circle punch.

Next, I stamped a leaf from the Day Of Gratitude stamp set with Pool Party ink on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the Thank You greeting with Soft Suede ink on top of the leaf. Now for the tricky part, I attached the stamped scrap to the card base so it’ll be visible through the punched circle. Once I have it attached in just the right spot, I attach the punched and embossed layer with lots of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally, I stamped another leaf on a scrap of Spice Cake DSP, cut it out, and attached it with the non-stamped side facing upward. I added a knot of quilted Early Espresso ribbon with a glue dot, and it’s done. It sounds a lot harder and longer when I type all the directions! But it really is a 10-minute or less card.

Don’t forget about the Digital Scrapbooking Event that starts tomorrow and the FREE Downloads. Click HERE for all the details.

Thanks for stopping by, and please let me know if you have any questions.
