Thanksgiving Easel Card





I had to use the new stamp set Gifts of the Earth from Stampin' Up! again. I love the images.
Today's technique challenge was to make an easel card. It's pretty simple and the instructions can be found by following the link in the 1st post of the challenge. The fold that is made in the card base makes the card easy to stand up and displayed.

I also used the colors from last week's color challenge. That challenge was to use Mellow Moss, Whisper White, and Kraft.

I used Spellbinders Nestabilities - Scallop Squares to help with the layering on this card. I like how you can cut it out and add the embossed edge to the cardstock.

I also added a button from my stash of old buttons from my mother and grandmother, (it's fun to use some of these little treasures), and also some of my SU HodgePodge Hardware.

I hope you like my card.

Carstock: Kraft, Whisper White, SU Designer Series Paper (hostess pack)
Stamps: Gifts of the Earth, Teeny Tiny Wishes (both from Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Stazon Black, Mellow Moss, SU Markers
Ribbon is a scrap piece I had saved for the right project.

Wow! This is fabulous! What a cool fold! It would be great for place cards at the Thanksgiving Table. I haven't seen this fold before. I worked all day yesterday, so I didn't get the chance to check out the challenges. Love the color combo with this image too! Great job!
