Gobble Gobble Day 2

Welcome to day 2 of Gobble Gobble previews!!  I am thrilled to show you some of the fun images and sentiments in this set because it's not all about the turkey. 

One of my favourite images from this set is this leafy stem.  What I love about it most is the dotted leaf outline.  It just adds another element to the leaf.

CARD #1

I created this card with the notion of simplicity meets rustic.  I stamped the background layer using polka dot basics stamp set and then distressed the edges of the remaining layers.  I added the twine and the button as well as a cut out sentiment



INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Create card base, layers and die cuts.
  2. Stamp image, background and sentiment.
  3. Distress paper.
  4. Attach twine and thread button.
  5. Adhere all layers.

I LOVE that first card! Such a good balance of blank space and stamping. I love how my eye is drawn outward from the center to the edges. Beautiful!

Love the layout of the first card, great combo of rustic simplicity. However I'm traditional and love the color combo of the second card. Both are beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
