Thanksgiving Card

Well this week has been crazy with customer appointments, the election, and a Board of Directors meeting at work--seems every minute is just jammed packed.
I need a little creative break so I made a simple Thanksgiving card.

Card base is a simple A2 card from Kraft paper.  I cut all the layers all at once and then trimmed them down--still all stacked removing the bottom layer each time--this way you get perfect fitting layers each time.  I used my all time top pick ribbon from Joann's that I buy multiple spools of each time because I use it so much.  I tied a simple knot nothing fancy.
The stamp is from CTMH and in the current idea book-I stamped the base of the pumpkin then used versamark ink and brown embossing powder to second step the pumpkin.  I also used the same brown to emboss the 'Thanksgivin'.  I used a moss green powder to accent the leaves and vine .
This would make a perfect thank you card for someone who has invited you to the big turkey dinner!
Make it a great one-

Decorated Treat Box

So I have gotten on a kick of giving yummy treat for celebrations.  Recently I missed a birthday of a friend (who also happens to be the guy who helps run the wine shop I frequent-not a bad friend to have if you like wine) of mine because I was in NYC on business.
So to celebrate and let him know I did not forget and that I was sorry for missing the party--I bought bite size cupcakes from my fav place in NYC and brought them home--well you know I could not just give them in the box they came in!
So I took a white baked goods box from Joann's and worked some paper magic-

I measure the box and cut everything 1/8" short so that it would fit perfectly on the box, inked the edges, used some red line and started the over haul.

To create the 'window' I layered up my two pcs of paper and paced my spellbinders die and sent it through my cuttlebug--this took all of 5 minutes and the box was as big a hit as the bit sized cupcakes!

We are off on another week (this year had  flown by) so make it count!
Make it a great one and we will see you back here soon!
