Grateful Greetings November 15, 2016 07:00
Hi Just Nick friends! It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today. All week long we will be sharing with you cards made with some of our favorite Just Nick designs.
The month of November tends to be the time that we are most often counting and sharing our gratitudes with one another. With that in mind, I knew I wanted my cards to have a thankful theme. The new Many Thanks cut file was a great starting point for both of my cards, as it includes a bevy of thankful sentiments.
For my first card, I paired the word 'grateful' from Many Thanks, with the pumpkin and leaf images from Sights of fall.
The scripty sentiment from Many Thanks looks beautiful when cut out of a gold glittery cardstock. It's definitely the focal point of the card, but placing it atop of the pumpkin design guarantees that the seasonal icon, also won't be missed.
My second card was built on a foundation of feathers from the Feathers 2 file. I cut the trio of designs from three different patterned papers and mounted them to my card front with foam adhesive.
I heat embossed the tips of the two outside designs, to tie into the sparkle of the sentiment piece. Once again, the sentiment makes a fun and eye-catching statement, when cut out of gold glitter cardstock.
I now have two beautiful greetings to express my gratitude to some well deserving people in my life. I'm off to personalize and pop them both in the mail!
Join us again tomorrow for more card inspiration!
