First, let me start by wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Whether you are with family and friends for the holiday, or just having your typical day at home – I hope it is a wonderful day for you!
I always love the time to get all of our family in the area for an afternoon of relaxing and eating an awesome meal – especially when it is like this year and I am not hosting! 😉 I love having people over, but after the last year or two hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is kind of nice to get to take food to someone else’s house this time.
Well, before I head out to eat way too much good food – I thought I would share a thank you card I made with my group in our last team meeting. It is a great clean and simple card that doesn’t take a lot of time or supplies but looks really nice in person.
This is the technique of using a clear block to stamp a background image. I used my ‘H’ Clear Block and inked it up with Crumb Cake ink. Stamp your block directly to your card base, if you don’t get a solid image – try again either with your cardstock on a softer surface (like on a magazine) or pick up your cardstock and block and flip them over so you can rub the paper to help pick up the ink.
Then stamp your images – in this case, leaves and acorns from the Day of Gratitude stamp set. Then, just add a bit of bakers twine, to the top and you are done!
