Thanksgiving Card

I made this simple little card for the Cricut Cardz Challenge, #48 which is to make a card for Thanksgiving. I have very few sentiment stamps, so I covered up part of a stamp that said "Thanks you're sweet" so that I could just have it say Thanks. Ideally, I'd have liked it to say "Give Thanks"...but I do what I can :)

The cardbase is from Plantin Schoolbook (I don't know that it's a card "feature", but a card was one of my button options. Is that the same thing?), leaves are cut from the Create a Critter at 2 3/4 inches, the brown craft paper is from my stash, the rest is from Stampin' Up. The brads are from JoAnns.

I embossed the orange leaf with my new toy:

Sizzix Texture Boutique! I love it! I only have two folders right now (8 more are in the mail!). It's not funny how quickly I'm outgrowing my craft space. There are just so many fun things out there right now.


  1. What a cute card. Yes, this counts as a card feature. That's what I used to make my DT card. You'll have so much fun with your Texture Boutique, especially when all your other folders come. I love how you worked with what you had when it came to the stamp...way to adapt. Thanks for playing along at CCC.

  2. I just love this leaf, I used it not long ago one of my cards and you did a wonderful job with it and on the challenge, thanks so much for joining with us at CCC.

  3. Soo cute! Love the embossing! Thanks for playing with us at CCC!

  4. This is so cute! Love it. However, those three little dots could easily become acorns if you wanted more fall festivity.

  5. Keep on creating. You're love your Texture Boutique - I have one too. Love it! Thanks for joining us at CCC for this challenge.

  6. Thanks for the suggestion, Nicole, I will add some acorns! The brads do seem lonely.
