Purchased Thanksgiving

As I've mentioned before, I like to give cards at Thanksgiving that express my appreciation for the people in my life, so I need to start on them early.

This card demonstrates what one can do if the element you want for a focal is too small.  Matting it a couple of times makes it look bigger visually.  In this case the mats are framed with Peel Off stickers.  The focal and the border both make use of printed die cut elements from Hot Off the Press.

The card base is a printed one - also from Hot Off the Press.  Sometimes I find it a real challenge to create a nice card with these printed cards, but I DO like the way this turned out. This card also demonstrates the way that borders or mats around elements really help them stand out nicely.
