Gratitude



Today is my last of the Harvest of Thanks cards. I have really enjoyed working with this set and will probably use it to make my Thanksgiving cards this year.

I had created a card yesterday, but struggled with the design layout and pattern selection.  I was going to remake it, but decided I would just leave it until morning.  Well morning came and I was still not pleased with it. So you might have guessed, it made it's way to the trash bin! Thus a late post!

I was up early to start again. I perused some sketches on line choose this one.  It is an earlier OWH 146 sketch, but I flipped it and used a different image shape. Finally, I was pleased with the outcome.

I used the Sweater Weather DSP again. I paired it with Soft Suede CS and ink, Crushed Curry CS and ink, and Very Vanilla for the main card. 

I used the Deco Labels framelits #130102 for the first time on this card to highlight the turkey image. You can, of course, not do this extra step, but it does add interest to the card layout.

Also used was the Naturals Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Square Lattice folder, and the Bitty Banners die cuts. 

The envelope was made using the Envelope Punch board, did I tell you I love this new tool! I think I did. :>}

I finished it off this time by cutting a 4x4 piece of coordinating card stock. 
Folded it in half, punched the end with using the EPB , 
glued one half with SNAIL. That was it!  

   I hope you enjoyed seeing ways on how to use this stamp set and DSP.
I would love for you to drop me a line and let me know what you think.

MAke it a great day and stay CRAFTY!
