Give Thanks





Here are a couple of Thanksgiving cards. I haven't really made many as I don't usually send out Thanksgiving cards. The first one is a beautiful stamp by Northwoods that I purchased a few months ago with a gift certificate I received for my birthday. I thought it was so pretty and I have nothing like it! It is very detailed, takes a long time to color but it is really pretty. It is large so to mount is on a 1/4 sheet sized card (A2 or 4-1/4 x 5-1/2) you really don't have much room to make any sort of arrangement with it. However I really like how it came out and the papers I used with it worked nicely.

The second one is the same stamp however I framed it with a circle frame I made with a corner punch. You take the corner piece off the corner punch and take a circle and basically punch it eight times evenly in a circle and trim where they meet and the center piece falls out. Then you have a frame! It looks so cool. You can see the tutorial here or video tutorial here.

The bottom image is of some Fall cards I made last year at a Stampin' Up class. I just thought I would post them for ideas for this season.

The first card you posted is fabulous! (Not that the rest aren't.) I can't imagine how long it takes to color that image in, but you did a great job!
