Happy Friday! I hope everyone has enjoyed a great and productive week!
Tomorrow is our day…Woo hoo! Saturday, October 1 is World Card Making Day. You’ll want to check out the information below, so you don’t miss out on any of the fun! It’s going to be GREAT! Imagine an entire day of crafting!
Today’s Thanksgiving card is all about the beautiful Rustic Harvest 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper! It’s gorgeous!
I started off with a card base in Basic Black cardstock. I adhered a piece of the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper in the pumpkin print to a Crushed Curry cardstock mat then adhered this unit to the card front. I cut a piece of the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper from the Crushed Curry print to 4-3/4″ x 2″, then cut a “V” on one end to form a banner. This DSP banner was then adhered to the top of the card front, lining up with the pumpkin print paper.
Using the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set, I stamped the sentiment “Happy Thanksgiving” to a Basic White sentiment label in Crushed Curry, then adhered the sentiment label to a Basic Black mat. The sentiment label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and centered on the card front.
I used the grass stamp from the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set to stamp the grass several times onto a white inside panel. This panel was matted to a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock then adhered to the inside of the card. I chose not to stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card. A sentiment can always be added later.
The same grass image from the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set was stamped onto the lower corner of the envelope front and I added a piece of the pumpkin print Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap – fussy cutting around the flap to finish off the envelope.
To finish off the card front I tied a double bow using Linen Thread and adhered the bow to the top center of the sentiment label using a Mini Glue Dot. Two amber gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack were added to either side of the sentiment label.
This card came together so quickly, and the beautiful designer series paper makes for a lovely and simple Thanksgiving card that anyone would love to receive! Change up the sentiment on the front of the card and this would also make a perfect Fall birthday card, get well card or thinking of your card for either male or female!

Product Ordering Details:
World Card Making Day is all about making beautiful, heartfelt cards. During the event, Stampin’ Up! will walk you through several projects, and you can create the cards along with the presenters. You’ll end up with new project ideas and some stunning new cards!
To make the most of this experience, you can order the Cottage Rose Bundle from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog, the Cottage Wreaths Bundle from the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog, or the Warm Welcome Bundle (which you can get EARLY from the January–June 2023 Mini Catalog beginning September 1)! The bundles aren’t required to attend the event, but if you’d like to make the projects presented, you’ll want to get the bundles!
As an added bonus, when you order ANY of the three bundles used for the event, you’ll get a FREE gift of Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels! (Note that even if you order all three bundles, you’ll only receive one Iridescent Pearls gift.)
Check out the Product Flyer below for the bundle ordering information (click on DOWNLOAD). You can still attend this event without ordering the bundles, but it’ll be a lot more fun to craft together if you have one or more of the bundles!
While it is probably too late to receive the focus bundles for this event in time for Saturday, if you order by October 1st you’ll still receive the free Iridescent Pearls provided you place your order by October 1.
I’m really excited for these events – The Stampin’ Up World Card Making Day event and our Inkin’ Krew event! I hope you’ll be able to join in on the fun! Don’t forget to invite your crafting friends and family, too! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. See you soon!
