Giving Thanks

Posted by Picasa
I just love the colors in the Designer Series Paper AUTUMN MEADOWS # 116769
Here I used just one corner of the 12x12 paper to pick up all the fall images.
I love the  TAKEN WITH TEAL color, it just adds such a nice contrast to the other rich autumn colors.
Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon was used under the sentiment GIVE THANKS #115364 ( Holiday Best Level 1 hostess set). Grosgrain ribbon adds a nice touch of texture and sponging the edges of your card stock adds extra depth. I sponged my edges with CLOSE TO COCOA creating soft, warm edges.
The sentiment was stamped in choc. chip  and punched with the WIDE OVAL punch # 112082. Do you see the layer behind it? It's the DESIGNER LABEL punch #107590, but because it is smaller than the wide oval I cut it vertically in half and then took the two pieces and had them peek out of each side. I love the LOOK, how about you?
This was the perfect card to use one of the mustard colored buttons from the PLAYGROUND # 116313 designer buttons  box. It is tied with shredded pieces of choc chip grosgrain ribbon. It's a quick and simple card to make, yet so rich in color.

Card stock : Taken with Teal, More Mustard, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Autumn Meadows Designer Series Paper
Punches: Wide Oval, Designer Label
Accessories: Grosgrain ribbon, sponges
