Hello Tonic Fans! Debbie Seyer here today to share with you a fun Thanksgiving card. My mom always hosts Thanksgiving. She makes our Thanksgiving dinner very special from setting the table “just right” to sending out special invitations. Can you see where I am going with this? LOL Yep, that means that I am always in charge of our special Thanksgiving invitations. So today, I decided it was time to sit down and start designing them. I wanted to keep them simple but elegant so I used the 1415E Eastern Oyster Layering Basics Die set from Tonic to help me. Here is my invitation…..
To begin, I cut the base cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11. I scored it at 5 1/2″ and then folded the brown cardstock. I then cut the green cardstock to 4 x 5 1/4″. The patterned paper layer was cut to 3 3/4 x 5″. Then I stamped and colored the cute pumpkin image. Using the 1415e Eastern Oyster Layering Basics Die set, I die cut the image and die cut a piece of patterned paper that is slightly larger. The increments in size for this set are really nice! The largest die in the set is 3 3/4 x 5 1/2″ so the dies are the perfect size for card making. Here is a closer look at the image. Can you see the 757N Golden Sunset Glitter Drops that I added to the berries? That just added the right touch!
To complete the card, I printed the sentiment onto white cardstock using my computer. Then I positioned the die into place using some repositional tape and ran it thru the Tangerine die cutting machine. I used a slot punch on the right-hand side of the main panel to punch a place for my ribbon. I really like using this technique on my cards because it gives me plenty of space to add a bow.
Thanks for stopping by today!
