Houndstooth Give Thanks Card

Hello! I have a quick post this evening to share my Houndstooth Give Thanks Card. There are many Fall/Autumn challenges out right now and I thought it would be a good time to get a head start on my Thanksgiving cards. It seems I always procrastinate and end up making them all the week before I need them. This year I'm trying to be a little more proactive.

With the exception of the sentiment and embossing folder, all the products used on this card are by Stampin' Up!. Many of the products are retired but they had the look I wanted for this card. I used last years Festival of Prints paper stack, French Foliage stamp set, Cajun Craze dsp and More Mustard card stock. The current products are Natural cardstock, Old Olive cardstock, Early Espresso Core'dinations sandable cardstock, Antique Brads, and Old Olive Candy Dots. The sentiment stamp is part of a larger stamp that I masked and it's from last years dollar bin at Michaels. For the embossed borders I used an Organic Flourish folder by Cricut Cuttlebug. After all was put together I really wished I would have moved the sentiment, brad, and strip of Cajun dsp down a quarter of an inch. It would have centered the brad between the two bottom leaves. Hindsight is always 20/20. Thanks for stopping by and have a great night and pleasant tomorrow!

My Houndstooth Give Thanks Card is entered into the following challenges:
