Good morning! I love sending hand-stamped cards to my extended family for their birthday, Christmas, Easter, all sorts of occasions. But I really don’t send Thanksgiving cards. I don’t know why; I just never have. Well, this year when I started thinking about my aunts and uncles, I decided to make cards to let them know I was thinking of them on Thanksgiving.
I have a few bits of the Spice Cake DSP leftover, and I thought the Pals Paper Arts PPA120 sketch challenge was the perfect way to utilize some of this beautiful paper. I combined it with the Day Of Gratitude stamp set, one of my favorites. The leaves in this set are the perfect combination of masculine and feminine. That way I can make some cards that won’t be too “girly” for my uncles, right?!
My card base is Very Vanilla, with a Spice Cake layer. Then the focal layer is River Rock cardstock with the Soft Suede stamped greeting. Next, I stamped one leaf with Soft Suede and the other with Pool Party. Then I cut them out and popped them up with dimensionals. I finished the card with another bit of Spice Cake DSP, some Pear Pizzazz cardstock, and a couple silver brads.
Don't forget about the Stampin' Up Online Extravaganza running now through Nov 30th. CLICK HERE for complete details.
