Beautiful Autumn Thanksgiving Card

Today’s card is my version of the scrappy strip technique . It is a fun way to use up bits and pieces of paper.  I love this Beautiful Autumn bundle because it includes the 3 little punches (see below).

I embossed the Mint Macaron cardstock before cutting it into strips. Then you just cut angled strips of that and the DSP and alternate it with the 1/4″ strips of copper foil. I used a mat of Mint Macaron cardstock and put down 4 rows of adhesive and then attached the strips to that. Cut your strips a little longer than you need and when finished just trim the excess away. I attached this completed piece to a mat of copper foil. Punch out some leaves from the foil before attaching it since it will be covered. The sentiment is embossed with copper embossing powder (sadly, it has retired). The leaves are Mango Melody cardstock stamped with Cajun Craze ink and Merry Merlot cardstock stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink. The acorn is Crumb Cake stamped with Soft Suede ink. There is also a leaf punched out with copper foil paper. 

 

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? My family and I are doing a very non-traditional meal. We are having soup and salad bar. We have done this several times in the past, sometimes for Thanksgiving and sometimes for Christmas. When I asked if they wanted turkey and all the trimmings or soup and salad they all chose soup and salad. My daughter and son and I all make different soups so there’s lots to try and leftovers to take home. For the salad, we put out a “fix your own salad” table with everything you could imagine putting in a salad. Add some rolls and desserts and it’s a yummy meal. And so easy.
