Howdy! Today is a new month and I am over at the a2z Scrapbbooking blog with my fall thankful card for the November Challenge. The details for the challenge Give Thanks and more card inspiration are on the blog. I decided some plaid and farm animals were the way to go.
The Sugartree Farmhouse digital kit worked really well for what I had in mind. You can get this digital kit at the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy shop. There are so many things you could use this for from Spring to Fall.
To start out I brought the 3 animals into the Cameo Silhouette software to create cut files so I could cut them out using one of my favorite papers ever from the Lawn Fawn paper pad Perfectly Plaid Fall. I just saw them in plaid right when I started looking at this digital kit. After I cut them out I inked the edges using Quick Quotes ink. The cool thing about the Quick Quotes ink is they have points on the ink pad to make it much easier to get in the small areas.
Next I used a pierced die to cut out the rectangle from a darker kraft paper. The orange plaid rectangle is cut with a die also called Wonky Stitched Rectangles. And then an A2 size panel out of the same darker kraft paper. All of these were inked around the edges. The top most rectangle is popped up by using a slightly smaller piece of fun foam.
I printed the sentiment on a piece of Neenah cardstock changing the font color to a brown. I cut the sentiment out using a banner die. I used Quick Quotes ink again to ink over the banner.
