The Sisterhood of Crafters has a new challenge using this Mood Board. What do you see in this photo that makes you want to make a card?? I chose the colors and the words “Give Thanks” to make a Thanksgiving card for my family. This card is using the Country Home stamp set, which is wonderful for Thanksgiving, and pairing it with a die that I had purchased a year ago and never used. Isn’t it beautiful??

My Secrets to Making This Country Home Project

  • Isn’t the background cool? I absolutely love the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint!! I applied the paint with a dauber to the Very Vanilla cardstock after running it through the Big Shot in the Quilt Top embossing folder. I’m no expert with it yet, but I can guarantee you that there’s “no experience needed” to have fun with this shimmer paint! The photo can’t show the lovely bling the paint has added, but it’s very festive IRL.
  • The flowers and vase stamp was stamped in Cajun Craze, then I used a blender pen to gently pull the ink from the outlines to add a hint of color to the image.
  • The 1/4″ copper trim was tied into a bow and only the loops were pulled apart to add a little more fullness.
