Stamping cards for Thanksgiving is an annual thing for me. My family would think that Thanksgiving hadn’t come if they didn’t get a card. I think I started a trend many years ago, as some have been sending them to me for a while now too. Of course, I love the process of making them, so I got out some stamps, papers and inks to play. The set I am using is discontinued, but the individual sentiments are still available on Impression Obsession.
This year, I wanted to recycle some elements from cards I have received.
I cut up those cards, fussy cutting some cute motifs. Adding ribbon or patterned paper underneath, and come cute stickers completed these two cards. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession.
Some of the inside sentiments made wonderful card fronts, with the stamp sentiment inside, as this one on the left. On the right, stamped leaves and acorns next to a patterned paper is topped with a cornucopia sticker and the sentiment.
Next, I cut a larger card’s sentiment down to a small size and framed it in brown, then added some patterned papers and a leaf sticker. The card on the right has a dimensional turkey and I added a pilgrim hat. The thankful sentiment is another one from Impression Obsession. Patterned papers and leaf stickers, along with a pumpkin complete the card.
This last card was one I made last year, and it just didn’t turn out that great on the front.
It is a tri-fold card, and the second leaf looks good.
The inside is pretty cute with the chef holding the turkey.
I decided to dress it up just a little, with a dark chocolate paper bar across the bottom, and a leaf and acorn dimensional sticker. Adding the Happy Thanksgiving at the top made it look more finished. It was ready to send now.
If you are planning a gathering for Thanksgiving, please do be safe, quarantine now, and have a happy holiday!
