Hi Stampers!  I hope you are all ready for Thanksgiving – it’s coming up on us FAST!  Just one more week.  I can’t believe how FAST this year has gone.  Seems like the 2015 Holiday Catalog was just released and now they have already announced the retirement list!  As a demo, I an order items from the 2016 Occasions Catalog and the 2016 Sale-a-bration in just a few short weeks.  If you too, want to be able to order these products a month before the public can even see the catalog – ask me about how you can order $125 worth of product for just $99 and test drive our demo kit at now risk to you. But, back to Thanksgiving…  Today’s post is for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge #276.

PPA276This card starts out with a Cajun Craze card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″). The next layer is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Very Vanilla card stock.  On the Very Vanilla layer, I stamped the small leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves stamp set in Cajun Craze, Hello Honey and Old Olive ink on the lower left side (as shown on our sketch).  I then used Hello Honey ink and the watercolor blotch stamp from the For All Things stamp set and stamped the sentiment (from the same set) over that in Cajun Craze ink on the right side. Before attaching this layer to the card base, I adhered a 5.5″ strip of 1 1/4″ strap of burlap ribbon across the top, tucking and adhering the ends onto the back of that layer.  I then tied a 15″ piece of gold cording over the top of that, making a bow on the front. I used stampin’ dimentionals to adhere this layer to the card base (because it would allow for the bulk of the burlap wrapped behind the layer).

Now to get this card into the mail before the week is up and it’s too late!

Happy Stamping, my friends!
