Thankful at Paper Crafting World

It’s time for another post for Paper Crafting World.  Today I’m using the Pumpkins Corner Vine Cut File to make a Thanksgiving or thank you card.

Card made using Paper Crafting World's Pumpkins Corner Vine cut file

I decided I would cut the pieces of the pumpkin, vine and greeting, which is Lori Whitlock cut file purchased in the Silhouette store, from patterned paper rather than card stock.  I opted to use digital patterned paper for the ability to size the pattern to the pieces.  In this case I used the Pumpkin Patch kit by NitWit Collections.

I decided to keep the card base very simple and let the combination of patterns do all the talking.  As always, I sponged the edges to give added dimension.  I can’t stress enough how much I suggest you do this on your projects, too.

A few things “extras” I did to this card include popping the turquoise panel on craft foam.  I’ve talked about using craft foam previously.  If you missed that, you can find it here.  I also brushed the pumpkin and the “thankful” with clear Wink of Stella.

Inside, a simple sentiment.  The inside panel is accented using some of the same pieces from the card front, converted to print only.  I created the sentiment using Times New Roman and color matched it to the pumpkin.
