Thanksgiving Slimline Easel Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful readers. As an ex-pat Brit now living in North Texas, Thanksgiving is not a holiday that I was familiar with until we moved here just over 19 years ago. While it is a day for food and football it is also one for quiet reflection, thinking of the things that we are thankful for and I shall be doing just that!

Today’s card in another of the popular slimline fold cards, this time an easel fold card using some of the pretty autumn themed products in the 2020 August – December mini catalog……………. and showing you how it all goes together with a video tutorial.

Thanksgiving Card – Funfold with Leaves and Pumpkins

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are in Thanksgiving week and while this year has not been the best there are things to be grateful for, starting with the health and wellbeing of family and friends, followed by having a roof over our heads and food on the table.

Today’s card features the Gather Together Stamp Set with the co-ordinating Gathered Leaves Dies. I love that stem of corn in the set as well as the cute little pumpkins and I used both on this card.

Come to Gather Pocket Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I hope you all had a peaceful Christmas, we spent some time ‘Face-timing’ with family in the UK with the grandchildren excitedly sharing what Father Christmas (Santa Claus) bought them for Christmas –  technology and the internet is a wonderful thing, especially at this time of year.

Today I have a fun fold to share – I used the Come to Gather Suite of products but change out the greetings and you could have a perfect birthday or thank you card. I have added video to show you how all the pieces go together…… so enjoy!

I have bought it up to date with the beautiful Come Together Suite of products, choosing the  Pretty Peacock and Pear Pizzazz colors from this suite.

New Neighbor Card with Gather Together

welcome back to my corner of the world.

We have new neighbors! The house next to ours has just sold for the 3rd time in 5 years! – not sure if that is a reflection on us or just that previous owners were young couples with growing families running out of space!  hopefully it is the latter!

Of course a welcome to the neighborhood is always nice and I had a new stamp set from the 2019 Holiday Catalog I wanted to play with Gather Together which I paired with the Delightful Day Stamp set because it has a teeny, tiny stamp that says ‘ on your new home’ – how simply perfect for my card!
