Gobble Gobble Day 5

Hi peeps!!
Can you believe it’s day 5 already??
When I created Gobble Gobble I wanted to create a set full of opportunities.  I decided to create some stamps that could be used as backgrounds but that could also double as focal images.  On today’s card you will see the acorn and the string of “thankful” words.  This card is 3.5x3.5.  I like to create cards of all different sizes and shapes but thought this one in particular would be a nice card to place on the Thanksgiving table for each of my guests.  You could always personalize it by putting the guests name on the outside side of the card.  Instead, I plan to write a personal message telling my guests why I am thankful they are in my life J  Sometimes it’s just the little things that make a difference.
Today’s cards features a pallette of fall colours.  I just love the acorn from this set and wanted to highlight it as the focal image.  I cut out tags and stamped and coloured the image, added the sentiment and punched a hole at the top and addeda bow.  I also made one of the paper strips scalloped for an added accent.


    1.       Create card base and paper strips.
    2.       Stamp image and sentiment.  Colour image.  Punch tags.
    3.       Punch hole at the top of the tag and tie ribbon.
    4.       Stamp “thankful” sentiment strip.
    5.       Punch scallops and adhere remaining layers.

Your tag is adorable. The colours are so zesty, yet have that autumnal twist. Looks new and refreshing!
