Thanksgiving Card - So Much Goodness



I took a break from all the Christmas colors to create one more Thanksgiving card before the Holiday was over.   Gee!  How did we even get this far into the year already?  My family has been planning our Thanksgiving meal for about 2 weeks now.  Not really planning though.  It's more of confirming who is bringing which dish, although, every year we bring the same ones!  Hard to break tradition!


Ok - Back to my card.  I loved the colors over at The Play Date Cafe and couldn't help doing one more card.  Besides, I'm in love with our Dreamin' papers and they are perfect for the color inspiration.   I paired them up with The Friday Mashup!



Here is the Friday Mashup Challenge:
1. Make a project using Paper Rosettes
2. Make a project using the sketch
3.  Mash it up and make a project using the sketch and use paper rosettes!

I love how the Dreamin' (X7142B) paper looks as a paper rosette!  I used a Harvest Charm (Z1633) for the center.  The sentiment is from the retired November stamp set.

Paper rosettes are easy to make.  I made mine using a strip of paper cut 1 1/4" x 12".  I scored the paper at every 1/4" and then 'fan folded'.   Once it was folded and glued it end to end and attached my charm to the top.  You can also use buttons for the center.  Get creative!   
Over at Friday Mashup they have a link to a tutorial on how to make a paper rosette from a border.  Be sure to check it out.

  7. Oh that charm in the center is perfect! Really gives your Rosette another look and you are right that pattern paper is so pretty as a Rosette. I hope you don't end up with too many double dishes at Thanksgiving. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup this week.
