Thanksgiving is right around the corner, are you ready with your cards? With being in need of a quick card to share for today’s post, I went to the usual suspects: foil paper, an embossing folder and dies. Throw in a piece of patterned paper and we have a great recipe.
Starting out with a folded cardbase of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, I used a strip of patterned paper and then backed it with a piece of gold foil paper. Coordinating the vanilla in the patterned paper, I used the Pretty Paisleys embossing folder and then fussy cut around the design. There was just enough room in the center of this piece to stamp the perfect sentiment from Suite Seasons.
With the same gold foil paper, I die cut two pieces from the Paisley Framelits dies and hung them on a string of golden twine. I feel the simplicity of this card design is offset by the use of gold accents. The message is allowed to take the focal point and let the earthy color tones ground the design. In other words, I like the way this card looks 🙂
Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card project. Links are here that you can click to get product info and purchase items as well. Thank you for your support with your purchase 🙂
Thank you for visiting my blog today and checking out my latest card making project. As the sentiment reads, In everything give thanks. Sage words as we run face forward into the holiday season this year. I’m glad we could make it together!

JOIN THE SWAP!! One more day to sign up!
If you would like to participate in an “Across the Miles Swap”, please contact me to sign up. Here is how it will work: You will need to sign up to participate by November 15th. Once we close off the sign up date, I will contact you to let you know how many cards to make for swap. You will get back as many as you send in. If you want to swap one card, then sign up to send in one card. If you want to swap with all particiants, I will let you know how many to make and that’s how many you will send in and get back. This is a great way to share your work with others and to see what everyone else is doing. I do not anticipate this swap to go too big but if it does then I will break us into groups so as not to have everyone make a ton of cards. Are you ready to join the swap? You have until Nov 15th to sign up. Let’s make it together! (open to demos and non-demos)
