Vicky Gould asked the CCEE Stampers to make a Fall or Thanksgiving card this week. My family is coming to my house for Thanksgiving dinner next week, and I like to give everyone a card -- so I was happy to do this challenge. Here's the card I made for Vicky's challenge:
I wanted to try something that was new to me on my card. While not totally new to me, I rarely use direct-to-paper. I punched the leaves from a piece of yellow copy paper (cardstock was too heavy for my punch), and then I swiped a multi-colored inkpad across the punched-out leaves. After gluing the leaves down across the center of the cardstock, I scored a line above and below them and drew a line through the score-line using a marker. Then I stippled some grey-green ink around the leaves between the lines.
We'd love for you to join us and make a Fall/Thanksgiving card. Just link your card, using Mr. Linky, on the CCEE Stampers blog.
