I had several stamping projects for the Thanksgiving holiday. This is the best time of year to use all those beautiful fall colors of ribbons, and papers, and inks.
I wanted to make a couple of Thanksgiving cards to mail to family far away. This one uses the cut out from the leaves, with a patterned paper behind. I love that little acorn stamp!
This one says Give Thanks, and has a lovely scene with a pumpkin, a bird sitting on a milk jug, and some fruit. I think my stamp pads are drying out, and they are getting a bit frayed. Santa, if you’re listening, I could use some new ones – (hint hint).
The green card on the left uses the leaf print ribbon, so pretty for autumn. It has a little iridescence to it. The one on the right was stamped with a brand new pad I got recently. That is what made me realize the others were getting a bit old. The cornucopia is much clearer on this card than the scene on the card above.
And this one says Thankful Thoughts, and I used a silk leaf for an embellishment.
Then I made some place cards for our holiday table using cut-out leaves and gold card stock.
These postcard style cards went with the Autumn Candle Wreaths to our wonderful office staff. I started with the same tuile ribbon with fall leaves and gold card stock. I removed the wire in the edge so it was easier to glue down. I glued another card to the back to hide the raw edge.
I added cut-out leaves and a Thinking of You stamp.
Each one is a little different, because the leaves are different.
Done and in the mail, or gifted!!
