American Crafts | So Grateful Card Set

It's getting close to one of my favorite holidays...Thanksgiving!  It's always so fun to get together with family, and of course, eat all of those yummy Thanksgiving goodies!  It's also a great time to share what you are thankful for, and that's just what the Design Team at American Crafts has being doing all this week!  I shared two cards on the American Crafts Blog yesterday, for So Grateful week, and wanted to stop in and share them with you today!

How to: Cut several different patterned papers and place them over your card base to create a patchwork look. Die cut a leaf shape and cut a square around the negative image. Place the negative leaf on the left hand side of your card. Add a sentiment to the top and bottom of your card using the Oakleaf Thickers. Machine stitch through your Thickers. Remove the paperclip from the chevron arrow in the Decorative Paper Clip pack and use it as an embellishment on your card. Add one of the Matte Puffy Stickers to the center of the negative leaf image.

Supplies: Autumn Crisp (366523) - Cedar, Autumn Crisp (366524) - Poplar, Autumn Crisp (366517) - Cherry, Autumn Crisp (366535) - Stickers, Autumn Crisp (366536) - Matte Puffy Accents, Autumn Crisp (366534) - Decorative Paper Clips, Thickers (366527) - Oakleaf

How to: Cut a 4.25x5.5" base from the Harvest patterned paper to place over your cardstock card base. Trace three leaf shapes onto the paper, using a die cut leaf and brown pen. Add a Photo Overlay from the Autumn Crisp collection over the front of your card and add machine stitching to hold it in place. Create a cluster for your sentiment using pieces from the Die Cut Cardstock Shapes, Decorative Button, and Matte Puffy Accent.

Supplies: Autumn Crisp (366525) - Harvest, Autumn Crisp (366533) - Photo Overlays, Autumn Crisp (366532) - Die Cut Cardstock Shapes, Autumn Crisp (366536) - Matte Puffy Accents, Autumn Crisp (366531) - Mixed Buttons

Thanks for stopping in today, and I hope you have a great weekend, and can get in some crafty time!!
