Gobble, Gobble! It is that time again when we reflect on our blessings and focus on what we have. Many also are generous with their blessings and are able to share with others. Today’s cards are thank you cards to a couple of people who went the extra mile for my family, so it was a perfect time to send them a little Thank You card for their thoughtfulness.
The first card was for a friend who is a retired tradesman, so I used a wood grain embossing folder and tape measure patterned paper, all tied together with CTMH Fern twine. Then for an added touch, I stenciled a paint splotch to highlight the sentiment using Tim Holtz Splatters stencil 🙂 The sentiments were stamped using Memento Cocoa Brown ink and the CTMH Finding the Words stamp set.
The next card was coffee themed, and carrying that over to the inside as well. I just LOVE the Tim Holtz stencils. This one has the coffee cup rings (LOVE IT!)
The Tim Holtz Sizzix On The Go Texture Fades embossing folder is one of my faves. After running my kraft card stock through the eBosser I then sponged some Tea Dye Distress ink over the top, just to capture the texture. I die cute Thanks from my Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts die, I actually did this four times so I could layer it to give it depth. I mounted it on a banner and popped the banner up over some CTMH Fern Twine.
On the inside I stenciled the coffee cup rings and splashes using my Tim Holtz Splatters stencil. Oops, I almost forgot…First, I stamped the To-Go coffee cup using my CTMH Treats of Friendship, and I masked it when I stenciled the coffee stains. I colored the stamp in with Distress Markers.
I would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday. Please click on the Follow Me button and Like us on Facebook so you don’t miss a thing.
