Hello Echo Park fans! It’s Aly Dosdall here with you today to share a Thanksgiving card I created using the new Made from Scratch collection and the darling I Heart Fall Mini Theme. I love that the two collections mix together perfectly!
I used sticker accents and cut out some leaves from the I Heart Fall Mini Theme paper to add a fall feel to this Thanksgiving card, but the rest of the card is from a collection that isn’t fall or Thanksgiving themed. You don’t always need themed products to create a themed look on your projects. Picking the right color scheme can help accomplish that as well.
I also used the Hexagon Nesting Designer Dies to create a geometric design on the front of my card. I cut hexagons using the three smallest dies and arranged them randomly on my card front. Then I added some hand stitching to each one. Design tip: I used an old mouse pad under the card front while I pierced stitching holes with my needle. Then I used a single strand of white floss to backstitch a border around each hexagon.
Since this is a “give thanks” card I thought it would be fun to share one way our family gives thanks this time of year. We always make a list of our blessings that we post up on the fridge during the month of November. Each member of our family adds one blessing to the list each day. Before we begin our Thanksgiving feast while we’re all gathered at the table we read that list. It really helps us all to see the wonderful things we have in our lives.
