Hi, Cutie Pie - Happy Thanksgiving // Card Creations

11:00:00 AM

Hello everyone all welcome back to my blog! It's weird how things work some times. I have yet to make a single Halloween card, but here I am with another Thanksgiving themed card! Well, at least I'll be early for one holiday. I mean, before you know it, I'll be doing Christmas cards before Halloween cards! I must say that I have been wanting to use some of these autumnal themed supplies and have finally gotten around to it. Let's dive in to today's creation!


I made a brand new size card! I've never made a card this size before, but I had some envelopes laying around and decided it was about time I put a card in to them. My base is made out of 110 lb white cardstock and cut to make a 5" x 3 1/2" card. I like smaller cards for some of my smaller stamp sets or when I have a little less to say. A handmade card will make anyone smile no matter the size.


The background panel of my card is a simple patterned paper from one of Craft Smith's new paper pads. I was in the autumnal mood when I went to Michael's a couple of weeks ago and the hot buy paper pads were calling my name and they were on sale. That being said, I definitely, definitely, definitely do not need to buy more paper. I cut this patterned paper to 4 3/4" x 3 1/4". I wanted to add more detail to this background, so I ended up using my Recollections scalloped bored punch. This punch is great for large and small projects with the large scale scallops. I also think that the dainty dots add a nice touchy of whimsy.


I then moved on to the stamping portion of this card. I used this absolutely adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set. I used the cute pie and sentiment on the front of the card. I did a quick round of watercoloring on my pie and cut the sentiment in to a cute banner. Since this card is small, I didn't think that the entire space needed to be filled. I did want to add more texture. To achieve this I used tan embroidery thread in a neat little bow.


To finish off this card, I used the accompanying sentiment from the set on the inside. I also stamped this in Memento black ink. I hope you enjoyed this little Thanksgiving card. Do you send out Thanksgiving cards? Since moving away from home, I feel a constant need to send things to friends and family. I suppose that is a good urge to have. Thanks for stopping by!
