Can you believe it is the middle of November, the month that just started, and that Thanksgiving is on its way?! I realized I should probably make a card with fall colors and ended up with this Flourish Thinlits Dies Thanksgiving Card. I really just kind of grabbed some scrap pieces of card stock in fall colors and I ended up with a 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ square card, Crumb Cake cardstock as the base. Later I decided to put the Very Vanilla front layer of the card over a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock for a thin border.
I just used my Big Shot and Flourish Thinlits Dies to cut as many pieces as I could fit on the cardstock scraps I had to make a bunch of pieces and then I could play with them and come up with something! The greeting is stamped from the Suite Seasons Stamp Set, one of the stamp sets on sale during November. I ordered it, along with the new Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, and I’m so glad I did. I’ve already used it several times on cards and projects! You can never have too many greeting stamp sets. As a side note, this stamp set has a greeting you can use for a sympathy card or some other kind of serious caring type card, and we often do not have a good saying to use for a card like that.
Be sure to check out the Stitched From the Heart collection of the new framelits and all the stamp sets on sale until November 31.
If you are new to stamping or do not have a Demonstrator, I’d be happy to mail you the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs! I have some extras right now and can send them out pronto! They make the best reading material!!
Time to be making some Thanksgiving cards if you plan to mail some out or Thanksgiving favors or decorations, so let me know if you need any ideas or help.
