I am continuing my trend of non-Christmas cards (although I do have some to show you soon) with the challenge from SU Only Challenges this week. Our theme this week is “Thankful”. Let’s face it, many of us have so much to be thankful for that it is nice to be able to share that gratitude with others. A handmade card speaks volumes about how much someone means to you!
I knew I wanted to use my Day of Gratitude set again for this card. The variety of projects you can make from this is seemingly endless! This particular leaf is so great when it is cut out and even better when you have a bunch of them. Fortunately, it is also very easy to cut out!! I decided on a really clean presentation for this one and love the results! The leaves are attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots. I created a banner for the phrase (the one word inked with a Stampin’ Write marker). A Basic Black button finishes it off with thread colored with a marker.
The colors for today’s card are from Create with Connie and Mary. Yes, that is SU Only Challenge’s very own Mary Brown. These strong colors were perfect for my leaves!
I’ll be back tomorrow with another Freshly Made Sketches layout!! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
