Handmade Give Thanks Card

Hello and happy Labor Day! I hope you're lucky enough to have the day off to rest, relax and CRAFT. My hubby took a couple additional days of vacation so we've had a long weekend together and it's been nice. We didn't make any plans and have taken it one day at a time. Sometimes it's nice to just do nothing!

On Thursday I saw the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts to use: Delightful Dijon, Old Olive and Cajun Craze. These colors are perfect for a Thanksgiving card, so I made this Handmade Give Thanks Card. I've used a mix of new, current and retired supplies by Stampin' Up! along with a circle stitched die by My Favorite Things.

Handmade Give Thanks Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Delightful Dijon, Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla cardstock. Patterned Paper from Bohemian dsp.
  • Stamps: Thankful Forest Friends and For All Things.
  • Inks: Stampin' pads in Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze. Stampin' Write markers in Old Olive, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.
  • Other Stuff: Finishing Touches edgelit, circle stitched die by My Favorite Things, Vanilla/Gold Twine, wooden Autumn accent and stampin' dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!


  1. I love your handmade give thanks card! Lots of details especially with your backdrop card stock! Thanks so much for including the PPA in your stamping fun this holiday weekend!

  2. Beautiful card! I think fall colours are my favourites - I love fall!

  3. The special oak leaf on the twine really sets this card up to be so special and the graphic in the center is so complimentary to the paper selections.

  4. Great card Andrea, love the autumnal colours

  5. This is such a great card for Fall. I love the little wood element and the twine just finishes it all off nicely. Thanks so much for sharing with Pals Paper Arts.
