That’s right – it’s already the Holidays and I’m sure that I’m not the only one out there wondering where this year has gone. And before you know it, we’ll be on our way to 2015. But before we reach that point, we need to take a moment to be THANKFUL for everything that we have and for those who are part of our lives and make us who we are.
I wanted to make something a little on the “traditional” side of things for this Thanksgiving greeting and I knew that the Authentique Grateful paper collection would be perfect! I absolutely love the colors and patterns in this paper, they’re perfect for Fall even if you don’t want to use them for Thanksgiving.
Let me show you just how easy it is to create this card….
Start by cutting your card base from “Observance” printed paper to finished size of 5˝x7˝. Mist the die cut piece with Shimmer Spritz Gold and allow to dry.
Now it’s time to die cut a couple of layering pieces from the “Foundations” paper. Cut one piece each using the #1 and #3 Labels Twenty Eight dies. Spray both with irRESISTible Gold texture spray. Once dry, edge both pieces with Delicata Golden Glitz using a Sponge Dauber.
Die cut the last layering piece using the #2 Labels Twenty Eight die from the “Kindred” paper. Edge with Delicata Golden Glitz, then mist with Shimmer Spritz Gold.
Now it’s time for some card assembly. Start by adhering the largest die cut piece onto card base. With the next layering piece, carefully pull this gorgeous ribbon from C’est Joli through the die cut holes on the sides. Dove tail cut both ends of the ribbon, then adhere the embellished layering piece with dimensional adhesive.
Adhere the remaining layering piece with dimensional adhesive. Edge the sentiment sticker with Delicata Golden Glitz and mist with Shimmer Spritz Gold. Once dry, add to the front of the card.
