For These Gifts


Hello and welcome to Bountiful Blessings!

I have a very simple card to share today, but one that says a great deal! I guess I am pushing for the Thanksgiving holiday a little soon. We are barely into Fall. I just couldn't resist using this new stamp and punch! I started with kraft cardstock and stamped a background with images from a new PSX stamp set. I then layered DCWV patterned paper from the Fall Indian Summer Stack. The sentiment is stamped on ivory card stock with an image from the same PSX set. It's hard to read in the photo but says "For These Gifts We Gtve Thanks". The place setting is a 1 inch punch in textured silver with a 1/2 inch circle punched from textured copper card stock. The spoon and fork are punched out also. The sentiment and the place setting are then punched with a scalloped oval punch and adhered with dimensionals. I rounded the corners and added faux stitching as an accent. I then added the brown organdy ribbon by cutting a slit in the side of the card. I really like this stamp set and I am fairly pleased with the colors and layout of this card. Thanks for allowing me to rush the season a little. But, when you think about it, we should be giving thanks every day and not wait for a holiday, right?

I am so glad you stopped by today and I hope you will visit often! It always makes my day to have you drop in! Feel free to stay a while and look around! You are never a guest, just a new friend I haven't met yet!!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
