Non-traditional Thanksgiving Greeting

>> Wednesday, October 22, 2014

A couple weeks ago I created today's card for the DRS Designs "I'm so hungry" blog challenge, but due to a nasty computer virus I was unable to get it uploaded onto my computer to share.  I'm glad that's all in the past now because you can only do so much on a smart phone and I'm happy to have my computer back! 


When I first sat down to create this card, I really wasn't giving it much thought and as this card progressed it turned out to be a Thanksgiving greeting using non-traditional colors! I really liked the way the olive green, mauve pink, and the yellow color combination came together.  I first colored the Indian Corn (151H) with Copic markers. Then, the image was masked and light brown ink was sponged around the image while it was in a Nestability die. On the pink cardstock in the background, I stamped the new Silhouette Cornstalk (179B) repeatedly using Versamark ink to create my own pattern paper. The One Line Thanksgiving Greeting (841D) was stamped above the image, and I used a portion of the new Thank You Lord Greeting (165G) for the sentiment below it. The finished card size measure 4.25" x 5.5" and other than the knot in the ribbon, this card is nice and flat for mailing. Have you made your Thanksgiving greetings to send out yet?

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to stop by today. We appreciate your visit! 

Until next time,
Smiles,
Jennifer
