Give Thanks CASE

Now that we’re firmly into November and temps have finally started to cool off in Southern California, I decided to move all of my Halloween-themed stamps out of my primary rotation stamp area on my craft table and put them back into their permanent storage location. In their place, I pulled out some more Fall and Thanksgiving theme sets to put in their place instead. Since I had them out and handy anyway, I decided to make a Thanksgiving card for my aunt.

I absolutely love how this design turned out. Amazingly enough, it was a CASE based on a card created by Catherine Pooler. While our cards are vastly different, mine still definitely pays homage to hers. Here are five things I took from her card and incorporated into mine:

  • She had narrow panel with patterned background layer behind it. – I did the same.
  • She had a strong area of color concentrated in one corner. – She did some watercoloring in the lower left-hand corner of her panel while I opted to do some ink blending and concentrate my strongest color in the upper right-hand corner.
  • She used a die cut in the lower right-hand corner. – I did the same.
  • She used a script sentiment. – I did the same
  • She embellished with sequins. – I did the same.
