So Very Thankful Card

Hello Everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope that you all have a very happy thanksgiving surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones in celebration of what you are most thankful for.  Today, I'll be headed over to my parents house with my family to spend time and enjoy everyone's company....and to help my mom cook her fantastic Thanksgiving dinner!

For my third and final Thankful card this week, I'm featuring the Concord & 9th Give Thanks Stamp Set and the My Favorite Things Words of Gratitude Die Set (which looks like it may be discontinued but there are several alternatives that can be used).  I'm not sure what the proper term for this technique is but going to call it die cut dimensional inlay.  This is the first time that I've personally tried it and I really LOVE how it turned out.  The thankful die cut is subtle but still stands out.

Here's a video showing how I created this card using die cutting dimensional inlay.  

I hope you guys enjoyed these 3 Thankful cards created this week.  It pushed me to create more cards that I do not normally create, which is a good thing.  

Check back soon, as I'll be starting the Holiday Series of 2017 in the near future!!

MFT Grateful (OHWC)

Hello Everyone!

As promised, I have a few more fall/thankful cards for you all.  I can't believe that Thanksgiving is this week...where did the month of November go?!

For today I have a OHWC (One Hit Wonder Card), meaning I'm strictly using one stamp set to create the whole card with very little extra embellishments or other dies.  Today's card features My Favorite Things Grateful Stamp set.  I simply adore the font used for this stamp set, so much can be done with the flourish, and the price point is fantastic.

In the video I talk about and show how I turned a mistake into my card design, after a slight panic! hahaha

I'll be back very soon with another Thankful card for you guys.  I have 2 more to showcase this week! 

See you back here soon!
