Apple Pie Give Thanks Card

Mmm... Apple Pie is my favorite kind of pie and it's a must have at Thanksgiving! However, it must be homemade and not a store bought pie, there is a big difference.

The image used on this Apple Pie Give Thanks Card is by Meljen's Designs. It came pre-colored which makes life easy when I make multiple cards with the same image. I bought this image before Meljen's changed her store, not sure you can buy it individually anymore. The layout is from the challenge Tuesday Morning Sketches and this sketch was designed by Jessi Fogan. Click here to see her card. The background patterned paper is from the Sweater Weather paper pad by DCWV and the banners were made from scraps. The edges were sponged with Frayed Burlap distress ink (I may have gotten a little carried away with this process). The Give Thanks sentiment is from the retired hostess set called Good Greetings by Stampin' Up! To add the "stitching" detail from the sketch, I used a little punch with woodgrain paper and added little brown rhinestones for some sparkle. That's it! Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Beautiful card, Andrea! You've matched your papers perfectly to the precoloured image. Love the soft colours and the sweet Meljen's image. It's a shame her store has closed.

  2. That is a really nice card and would work great for Thanksgiving -- love the holiday that we only give Thanks and Eat! No gifts, no colored eggs -- just family and food! Your card meets the criteria for a perfect Thanksgiving card.

  3. This is soooo cute! I love this image and your wonderful papers!
    Thanks for playing along this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
