Be Thankful!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Pilgrim Boy from the new September release. This image also comes with 2 other sentiments “Happy Harvest” and “It’s turkey time”.  Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up soon and I’m looking forward to having a nice big turkey! Yum! Yum!

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut. I used a black marker to ink around the edges of the image.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. Echo Park Paper Co. – Farmhouse Kitchen paper was cut to the same size as the base and applied using double-sided tape. I fussy cut P13 – The Four Seasons – Autumn paper and applied it to the left corner using double-sided tape and glue. I thought the little squirrel was adorable, so from the same paper pack, I fussy cut around it too. The sentiment was fussy cut and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. I then ran this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to Momenta – Cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around it and applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin around the edges. The images and sentiment were then all popped up on the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. To finish off the card, I edged around all sides using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Vintage Photo.
