Happy Thanksgiving card by designer Patty Folchert

Well it is that time of the year, time to get cozy and be thankful for all of our blessings. Here is a homespun card with some rustic appeal courtesy of Jillibean Soup papers and stamps.

Happy Thanksgiving card by Patty Folchert

This card began with the weathered wood background paper (Soup Staples III/Kraft Triangles), I added stamped “Thanksgiving” and “xoxo” in brown ink on a diagonal as shown.

Then I added the border strips in layered Orange Salt and Wood Floor across the top. Then I added some vintage gold twine around those layers as shown. Next I grabbed the quilt star from the New Sweet Sunshine Soup collection and added some yellows, oranges and greens to enhance my Thanksgiving theme. Then from that same collection I cut out the “Happy” embroidery hoop and clipped them together with a clothespin. I tied the gold twine around the clothespin too for a little shimmer. Last I added some of the brand new Jillibean Soup adhesive sequins in yellow, perfect finishing touch.
So is just another example of how stamping can enhance almost any card. Best wishes to you and your families for a blessed Thanksgiving.
