Happy Thanksgiving Card

Friday, September 19, 2014
Hello there! I can't believe we are in the mid of September already, where has Summer gone?! With Autumn approaching (although it feels like it already) , I want to share a Thanksgiving card that I created using CutCardStock Card Stocks, I know....I can't believe I totally skipped Halloween! lol. Anyway, I hope this project gives you an idea of what to create or inspire you to create something else for this coming Thanksgiving! :)

Step 1: First you will need a couple of fall leave cut images, then you can make a new image from there by creating a frame with attached fall leave around it. Following is silhouette's designer software screen shots for illustration for this step.

Create a frame such as the above and make sure to select all and click "Make" from the "MODIFY" window

Place leaves around the frame, be sure each leaf touches the side (but not over) of the frame. In the same "MODIFY" window, click "Weld" and the following image will appear.

Cut three smaller leaves for decorating the card later

Step 2: Take a piece of gold Basis Card Stock that is slightly smaller than 4- 1/4" x 5- 1/2" in size, run it through a fall-themed embossing folder (I used Darice's)

Step 3: Using double-sided foam tape, place and adhere embossed card from Step 2 above behind the cut-out frame from Step 1. I find it easier if you stick foam tape behind brown card stock (around frame) instead of on the embossed gold card stock.

Step 4: Embellish some of the background leaves with some patterned cut-out fall leaves (smaller size to create the shadow effect), stamp sentiment. 

I hope you like this card and decide to make one too!
