Here are a couple more Thanksgiving Cards. You will notice that this year I decided to expand my color choices, rather than doing everything in the traditional fall colors. These focals once again feature stamps from JustRite's Antique Autumn Tags One stamp set and were cut with the matching dies. For both of these cards, I stamped the tag in brown and then colored them in with chalks.
The background paper for this first card was from an 8X8 set of papers, but I don't remember the manufacturer. The brown frame started as a rectangle of brown glitter card stock. I used the largest die from the Radiant Rectangles set to cut out the inside. I also used dies from this set to create the cream-colored oval which holds the stamped greeting. I used my scissors to snip around more of the die-cut elements so I could slip the tag through each end (you can get an idea of how the tag looked to begin with when you look at the next card. The pink vellum piece was cut with a die from the Resplendent Rectangles set - as was the white mat that sits behind it.
This card showcases background paper from a 4.5 x 6.5 DCWV matstack. The pink/purple is a mylar-type wrapping paper (it's not the easiest to cut with dies, but persistence works wonders)! In addition to the JustRite die, the dies used here were (all Spellbinders):
- Marvelous Squares die for the corner pieces (cut apart)
- Radiant Rectangles for the bottom cream mat layer
- 5X7 Enchanted Labels 28 for the Pink/Purple mat layer
- Tag from Ornate Squares for cream top pieces ("innies" glued at each end of the greeting, and the tag cut apart with ends glued top and bottom behind the greeting.
