Thankful

Thanksgiving is not a big card-sending (I refuse to use the H word) holiday.  But I always send a hand made note to one of my husband's aunts a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  She hosts a huge holiday feast every year for the Austin family.  The majority of them live in the New England area, and because we are in North Carolina and flights into the Vermont area are not very cheap for a family of four, especially on this particular holiday, I've only been to a couple of these great gatherings.  We always get a festive invitation in the mail, and it makes me a little sad each year that we don't make it up that way to celebrate with those relatives, so I like to drop Aunt Paulie a quick note.

I got my layout inspiration from the gals at Freshly Made Sketches!


Recipe:
  • Soft Suede card base
  • Baja Breeze card stock cut to 3 1/2" by 4 1/4"
  • Bigz Autumn Accents Big Shot die
  • Teeny Tiny wishes stamp set
  • Soft Suede ink pad
  • Summer Starfruit stitched ribbon
  • Patio Party Designer Series Paper
  • Soft Suede card stock
  • Dazzling Details
Baker's Tip:
I gave a little extra dimension to the acorn by using Dazzling Details in a criss-cross pattern across the top.
Also, the ribbon is adhered across the top of the Baja card stock before adhering to the card base.  Then, I tied the bow separately, and attached it with a glue dot.
