Thanksgiving (02)

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

It's Thanksgiving week here in the US. It's such a wonderful holiday where we have the opportunity to reflect on what we are thankful for in the past year. Also, it's a great family time. 

I made a few more Thanksgiving cards than I have in past years. I had an older Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up that I wanted to use up. I posted these cards yesterday. 

For my first card I used an acetate sheet with a gold design for the background. Layered that on an old olive card base.  The angled embossed panel is a box that was included in the kit. I just cut it apart to use as a background for the leaf images. The large leaf was included in the kit, and I stamped the leaf design on it. The stamp set comes with the kit. Stamped & added the tag and some sequins to finish off this card.   
This next card is the same design with a few changes. I didn't stamp the large leaf and used a different acetate pattern for the background. The angled embossed panel on this one is a small card base from the kit. I cut it to use as the background for the leaf images. I sponged the 3 leaves with distress inks on this one. 
This last card is using a gold patterned acetate sheet over a cajun craze card base. I cut apart a small envelope that came in the kit and used a die to cut the circle. Stamped the sentiment and added some gold leaves that come in the kit. Sponged the green leaves with distress ink, added the cajun craze baker's twine (also from kit) and a few sequins to complete this card. 
Well that's it for this post. I have a few more thanksgiving cards I will post tomorrow. So until next time......God bless.
