Avery Elle: Thankful

Good morning folks!  Just a quickie post today with a card using the new Avery Elle set Thankful!  This mini set is all about the oversized acorn!  


I decided to go with a more natural, organic look for this card and here's what I ended up with.  I used the large wreath stamp from the new Winter Wreath set as a background.  The wreath stamp is actually not that wide, I just used a mask to stamp a wider image.  For a little bit of definition, I lightly colored over the leaves and the acorn cap with a Copic.  Lastly, I used a banner stamp from the new set Build A Banner.  This is a good way to use a banner stamp when your sentiment is slightly larger than the banner:)


I'm so happy to be working with this set because this is definitely how I've been feeling lately!  Even with the day-to-day craziness in my life, I'm feeling very thankful for family, friends, my home, and even my job;)  Hope you all are feeling it too!

Thank you so, so much for stopping by!  Heather also has a project today, so be sure to go visit her blog!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  4. Thankful is a wonderful way to feel :) Love your card - and the perfect scatter of pearls & sequins! I must say I'm glad acorns aren't actually that big...I've been hit in the head a few times but I don't think I could shake it off if they were the size of my hand ;)

  5. I love how you made the 'Acorn' the star of the show on this card, JJ! I love how you placed the wreath behind it, and how you used the banner with this pretty sentiment, too! Such a beautiful autumn card!!!
