Authentique Gracious Thankful Thanksgiving Card
Hello, Friends! Today I have the sweetest little Authentique Gracious Thankful Thanksgiving card to share with you. Thanksgiving is my very favorite holiday of all: family, food, fellowship….pie?!? How can you beat that? Growing up, my whole family would gather at my Grammy’s house up on the hill to celebrate together. All the aunts and uncles, all the cousins, great-grandparents crammed into that warm and gracious home, sharing great food, lots of laughs and lots of hugs is one of my favorite childhood memories!
Gracious Thankful Thanksgiving Card: Tips and Tricks
One of the reasons I love the Gracious Collection so much is that it reminds me of my Grammy’s home and those fabulous family gatherings. This 5″ x 7″ top fold card practically made itself!
- Top a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base with a 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ panel of the plaid pattern from the 8×8 paper pad.
- Next, mat a 4″ x 6″ panel of the autumn gourds pattern on brown cardstock. Top with a 4″ x 3″ panel of the teapot/teacup panel. Mat just the top and bottom of the smaller panel on brown cardstock.
- Trim the “Thankful” image to measure 2″ x 1 3/4″ and mat on brown card. Adhere below the center panel.
- Die cut 4 leafy wreaths from the acorn paper. Stagger and adhere together with Darice Foam Strips. Place foam strips on the bottom of the wreath and adhere as seen in the photo.
- Tuck the sides of the cardstock image under the sides of the wreath and adhere in place.
- Add ribbon, novelty buttons, foliage and flowers.
Gracious Thankful Thanksgiving Card: A Peek Inside
The inside is sweet and simple with a framed sentiment and a lovely treat pocket.
I created little folios with my scraps, then topped them with images and cardstock elements from the 12×12 collection kit.
One folio has room for a small photo and hand written note. The other has a yummy chocolate pocket!
