Thanksgiving

I got my fall/Halloween box out today. So I made this Thanksgiving card. First I made the embellishment. I had an embellishment that I keep in my fall box of a wreath made out of leaves. I don’t know who it’s made by or how I came to have it but I like it enough I try & duplicate it each year. Here is this year’s version. I stated by cutting out a circle using Spellbinder’s circle nestablities. I attached adhesive to it & started sticking leaves I had punched out in several colors & shapes using Martha Stewart punches. I have 3 different leaves. What I couldn’t attach using the circle I used either Pop Dots or Glue Dots. When you want to get adhesive to one particular place a Glue Dot works well.

Using the computer I typed out Thanksgiving in several fonts & sizes. I then cut a banner out using the Sizzix & die. I attached with removable tape the banner I cut out over the Thanksgiving I decided to use. Ran that through the printer & it printed Thanksgiving on my banner just the way I wanted it. I used this same technique for the prayer I found on the internet for the inside. I attached a forest green piece of card stock to a pre-made card. I then attached the banner to the wreath & the wreath to the card. Again using Glue Dots for their accuracy.

Inside I printed the Thanksgiving prayer I found on the internet. Google search. I cut it out using deckle shears.

We give You thanks for all You’ve done
Especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son

  1. I like the fact that you have a special box for fall/Thanksgiving. So organised. These leaves are so effective, like a wreath. It felt autumn today in England. Perhaps autumn has really arrived.
