Simple Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone! Just a quick post today to share the last in the series of cards we made last week at my stamp class. By the end of last week, I was completely out of creative Mojo and could not for the life of me come up with a great Thanksgiving card. I played with several fall sets and finally decided on Autumn Splendor with a simple layout.

The card base is a single sheet of 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" Cajun Craze onto which I layered a standard A2 Whisper White card, trimmed just an 1/8" on each side to fit onto the Cajun backer. I used a single layer backer on cards like this because the white card stock doesn't generally feel sturdy enough to support all the other layers on the front.

The windows were made by punching 1-3/8" squares evenly spaced in a 5-1/2 x 2-3/4" white strip and 1/2" strips of each color were added on the top and bottom edges. The leaves were stamped in Old Olive, So Saffron and Cajun Craze, cut out and mounted on double thick dimensional dots to stand out from the frame. A greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set was stamped with Basic Black ink and punched with the Word Window punch. 

Super simple and easy to mass produce for the holidays!

Hope you're having a great day~
