Thanksgiving Card Take III

     Today I am back with another Thanksgiving card.   As I mentioned in my previous posts, my goal this Thanksgiving is to make 6 different cards using some of the same elements.  I am also trying to incorporate some of the Stamp-A-Faire Challenges. My first card had a front cover cut back by a 1/2  inch. My 2nd Thanksgiving card was one I submitted for PTI"s October Blog Hop.  The elements I kept the same for today's card was the pumpkin, Mat Stack #1 and kraft cardstock. The challenge (Stamp-A-Faire #6) was to use notches with the ribbon.

      I inked the doily with Sepia ink.  The pattern paper is from the First Fruits Collection. Tying the ribbon took forever.  I had to watch Dawn's McVey's tutorial several times. It took me a dozen times before I was able to get the bow the way I wanted. (Okay part way)


     I have two other Thanksgiving cards finished that I'll be posting in the next day or two.  Thank you for stopping by.

Supplies: CS: Kraft, Orange Zest, Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate
Die: Mat Stack 1
Other: Sepia ink, ribbon, doily, pearl

Great card. Love that distressed doily, the stamping on the Mat Stack, and, of course, that clever pumpkin.

This is so pretty with the layering on the doily!

You did a great job on that bow, like the added pearl! Pumpkin with the doily is neat too.
