Thankful for You

Sharing another Thanksgiving card today from my stash of "I bought them and I MUST use them!" stamp sets. I love the sentiment on this card...especially appropriate for those special people in your life.  What a great time of year to remind them that you count them first when you count your blessings.

A Few Details:

  • The base is Papertrey ink Dark Chocolate that was stamped with a French script background using Versamark.  A strip of scrap fall leaves photo pattern paper was added, and then the entire base spritzed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist.
  • This card is a study of browns and neutrals, so for the central image, I used Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip ink and clear embossing powder on PTI Kraft cardstock.  That was accented with some Old Paper Distress Ink, also spritzed with Heirloom Gold PPM, and layered on Chocolate Chip cardstock.
  • Layers of crocheted lace ribbon, brown polka dot ribbon, a Maya Road chiffon flower, metal elements, and twine all build on the brown/neutral theme while adding texture and interest.
