I make Thanksgiving cards for friends and family to show my thankfulness about having them in our lives. Some years I set out to buy specific paper stacks based on color but this year I went through a bunch of stacks I already have (imagine that!) and pulled out coordinating papers from different stacks or from my loose papers. I found myself drawn to these colors which may not be traditional but neither am I!
I had a bunch of these gold foiled transparencies from stocking up on past sales. I love how stylishe they make projects look! So those became the background panel for the cards, cut at 4.75 by 6.75. To maximize the yield from my 12x12 patterned papers, I cut these panels 4x6 and got 6 panels per sheet.
I'm a Creative Fabrica subscriber so I downloaded this beautiful Floral Pumpkin to use as the focal for my cards.
I imported into Cricut Design Space, sized, and cut my layers. This is where Mr. Chocolate usually appears in my craft room to say "Too much work!".
I attached layer 2 to layer 1 with foam tape, layer 3 to layer to with my tape runner, and layer 4 to layer 3 with spray adhesive.
You can see that some of the cards had a solid base layer in different colors, others had a patterned base but they're ll the same construction and color palette.
To finish, I attached iridescent sequins with dimensional glue, and then tiny rhinestones to the center of those.
I hope the recipients like them!
