Have you been wondering where my Thanksgiving card pics are? The cards got finished over a week ago but I don't like to post the pics until they are in the mail. So, they got sent out last Saturday, yet I still didn't think about putting them on my blog. I need to get better about that! I made about 20 cards dividing between two prototypes. But I also did a different one for my mom and one for my hubby. Here they are ...
This second card was a challenge for me. I had a similar idea in my head but when I went to do the placement on the A-2 card size which I do 90% of the time, it just didn't work. The stamp, which is from DeNami designs was too large to show off much of the scrapbook paper which I had in mind to use here. So, I went thru envelopes and found I had enough that I could make a 5 x 7 size card instead, so this is the result. The punch I used is from Fiskars and one I have had for a number of years. And one I don't think I have ever used. But when I made the prototype I fell in love with it for this card. More challenges occured when on the second card I made I broke the puncher tab and I had to go buy another one at Michaels! And then the dots on each scallop are those dot sparkler stickers from Stampendous. I ran short, so I had to ask for help. Fortunately, a friend (ex-customer) came to my rescue and I was able to cover every scallop with a beautiful orange dot!
When I ran out of the dark orange paper, I decided it was fine and I would make a more simpler version for my mom. She loves pinks so I picked out this peach paper which is closer to that color scheme. I gave it to her today and she loved it!
And last but not least, this is the card I made for my hubby. I hope he likes it, I will give it to him tommorrow! I think it came out really cute. I wish I would have made more of this one to send. But I had already cut all the cardstock and scrapbook paper pieces when I came up with the card. There is always next year!
Gary's children and granchildren are coming for the big Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday. I am cooking all of it ...wish me luck! Just think, on the day that Thanksgiving is just a memory to you is the day that we will be having ours! Have a wonderful holiday with family and friends!
