Well here we are in September, which is really hard to believe. Our Canadian Thanksgiving is only 5 weeks away, so I thought I would be a bit pro-active and get a couple of Thanksgiving cards made. I usually keep putting 'holiday' cards off and then before you know it, it's here. So this is my first card of two that I'm sharing today.
I received my order from PTI a couple of weeks ago and this set Autumn Adornments was just waiting to be used.
I started with my top layer measuring 5.5 x 3 7/8. I stamped the flourish in each corner using distress milled lavender. Added the acorns with distress antique linen, and the small pink flowers using PTI - sweet blush.
I used a piece of scrap paper (5.5 x 1) in kind of a plum/grey tone and placed that along the left edge of my folded card base. I then adhered the the stamped layer on top of my card base about 1/8" from the right side of the card. For my sentiment I used the Thanksgiving blessings which comes with this set stamped using PTI - dark chocolate onto a piece of kraft c/s. Along the top of the kraft strip, I adhered a piece of Little B gold washi tape. I cut this kraft piece a little bit wider than the top layer because I wanted to overhang on each side of the main panel. Under the kraft panel I stamped 'so grateful' from a Flourish stamp set using distress antique linen.
The leaves were cut from scraps using the leaf from the die Phrase play #7 die.
So now for the finishing touches- I added some PTI Rainstones - love how crystal these little gems are, little white bow made from silk ribbon, wooden bird, and then for the center of the bow I added crystal self adhesive from Prima.
