So close to Thanksgiving, I decided to interpret the challenge with an invitation of thanks:
I started out with a blank piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and had the idea to leave a scored section for the sentiment. First, I stamped all the images from the Four Feathers stamp set in Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow. These colors are so pretty together--love the pop of deep purple from the Blackberry Bliss.
I scored a section for the sentiment but decided it needed a little more pizzazz....so I stamped the sentiment on a strip of vanilla and framed it with some Gold Foil paper. Ah, much better. Getting a little bit further and further away from "clean-and-simple", oh well!
I had already stamped the line and spot images from Gorgeous Grunge in Sahara Sand and I loved it but.... with the Gold Foil paper framing the sentiment, I needed to coordinate some gold somewhere so.... I highlighted the speckles by stamping some more in Versamark ink and embossing in gold. Really like the way this looks!
I did say this was an invitation, right? :-) We were lucky enough to receive the Holiday Invitation stamp set at convention and this was the first time I inked it up! I probably would not have purchased it for myself but now that I have it, I love it! This was a pretty quick and easy card to make, in fact I made 5 of them in about an hour! Perfect for a holiday celebration whether on Thanksgiving or during the Thanksgiving weekend.
I hope you will pop over and check out the other designers at The Paper Players. Such a great group we have!
