Happy Thanksgiving! Thankful for the Day of Gratitude handmade card that was in my mailbox. Godby (God-be) With Us Stamper ROXANNE UKRAINSKY made this lovely Thanksgiving Day card for me. Did you bless anyone this year with a Thanksgiving Day card?
The Day of Gratitude stamp set was used as the focal points for Roxanne's beautiful card. The large medallion stamp and greeting are both from that stamp set. Love how Roxanne lovely framed the insightful greeting. The frame stamp is from the Four Frames stamp set. Trying to picture this stamp set? Click on Four Frames to view the set of four frame stamps.
Before moving on, I want to point out how Roxanne used the Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon on her card. Do you see spots? They are all hidden on the opposite side.
For three reasons I really like that Roxanne turned the ribbon over:
1) polka dots seem a bit cutesy for her elegant card.
2) the polka dots are white and not my favorite when using Very Vanilla Card Stock.
3) the simply action of turning it over provided a ribbon with out-of-the-ordingary edging.
Creative thinking at work here.
The Day of Gratitude stamps are against a fantastic fall leaves background created with the French Foliage stamp set. Three Stampin' Up! stamp sets, one beautiful card.
The Square Lattice Embossing Folder and Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cut Machine provided the great texture to Roxanne's card. By sponging More Mustard Classic Stampin' Pad ink over the embossed card stock, it allowed the large medallion to stand out on her card.
