Thanksgiving Wishes

Fall is just whooshing past me this year with hardly a second to breath. So I know Thanksgiving will be here before I know it. Good thing I am already set with a simple yet gorgeous card.

I created this hybrid MDS card for my most recent swap.  I started by searching My Digital Studio for some nice Thanksgiving stamps. Never used the search function before? It is only the most amazing and helpful tool in MDS- check it out in your bottom right hand corner. It makes finding the perfect stamp/saying/embellishment a snap with just a key word. Awesomeness. I found some great stamps in the Autumn Traditions kit and got started.

So, here is what it looked like at the end of my MDS portion of the designing. A little blah right now, but don't worry- I've got plans to dress it up like a princess. This is just the solid base we need to get started.

I printed this card front four to a piece of vanilla cardstock (with a margin around the outside) and then chopped it up. Then comes the tricky part. I punched the sentiment right out of the printed layer. Don't worry about the hole- it will be hidden later.

I also punched out two labels from the green In Color cardstock. I cut one in half vertically, the other horizontally, and then mounted them to the back of my sentiment with a sliver of a gap between each of the halves. This gave it a sliver of a border color.

Last but not least I punched out some little flowers- roughed them up a bit so I could peel the paper into two layers (gives it a softer look) and then mounted everything to the card. And it was beautiful. Love it. Hope you do too!

Fluttery again soon!

Pin It!
