Thankful Blessings...

Hey, there!

Here's a little card that works for both Thanksgiving and Christmas...

It was published in Paper Crafts Card Creations earlier this year but I thought I'd save it for the season.  It's a fun little project because I was able to use one of those rather large stickers that comes on a 12x12 sheet of stickers.  I love those sheets for the number of elements on them, but sometimes they can be a bit awkwardly sized for cardmaking.

I stuck the sticker on my card front, leaving a bit of the sticker hanging over the top edge of the card.  (I trimmed the overhanging part right off.) Then I just cut the card front along the spine right up to the sticker and all the way around it.  That left the card with a little sticker shaped card frontlet - perfect for sticking a litle money underneath :)  I stamped the inside of the card with Papertrey's Text Style background and the outside and inside of the sticker with a few sentiments from Technique Tuesday.  I have a old Making Memories interchangable tool that makes the slots to hold the bill and added the magnets to hold the flap shut. 

I think it looks pretty with the ribbon sticking out from underneath.
Kind of a fun layout for a change of pace, right?

Anyone else going to brave the grocery store today?
I, of course, put that off until today so wish me luck and survival skills!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have this exact same Basic Grey sticker sheet and matching 6x6 designer paper pad. I was just looking at this sticker over the weekend wondering what I should do with it. Thanks for the inspiration to not use the entire sticker on the front of the card.

Great card idea. Will have to give that a try...now to find those little magnet thingies! I, too, braved the grocery store this afternoon and it wasn't that bad. My pumpkin pie is cooking up now and the crust is looking a little on the dark side. May have to run out early tomorrow and buy one..ugh. The store will really be crowded then. Oh well, tis the season. Have a very happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Robin B.

I grocery shopped today and it was easy peasy. 'Course I live in Canada so it's not really an issue here today. ;-)
