Ready for Thanksgiving?!

Ok, so you can give thanks any time of the year, but these papers are perfect for a thanksgiving card.
I know its early but might as well start now and be ready :)

I wonder who will get this one in November?!....hmmm....

This is the Autumn Melody stack by DCWV. The embellishments are from the matching embellishment pack I cut out the journaling tag from one of the tags in the stack. The 'ribbons' are thin pieces of paper. the leaves are actually ribbon from May Arts :) 

Here's how I made the easel card: 

The base is 10x5. I scored the base at 5" and 7.5" 
Then I folded: 

Then I cut a 5x5 piece for the front 

The front gets attached only to the top flap. make sure you put glue on the flap only, in case you forget (like I did) and go around the whole 5x5 square! lol

 To keep the rosette in place: I punched out 2 circles and glued them on the front and back of the rosette using a fast drying liquid glue. I held in to it for a couple minutes and then set it aside to dry. I glued the sticker right on the rosette using some more liquid glue on the little ridges under the sticker. 

Easel cards are my favorite! I love that they are simple to make and they are made to be displayed, not just put away in a drawer. When I give an easel card, I usually tie it with ribbon or wrap a matching paper around it. No point in hiding it in an envelope! 

Hope you enjoyed!

  2. Hi! Just saw a link to your blog via the DCWV blog and am so happy I did! Love the colors on your card and I am always on the lookout for interesting cuts and folds for cards.


I'd love to hear from you!
