DIY Give Thanks Easel Card
It has been a while since I’ve designed a card and I thought I’d create a fun fold of sorts for the Thanksgiving and Harvest season that I could send to those I am grateful to have in my life.
Fall Inspired Colors
For the colors and papers I found inspiration in the fall embossed cardstock I found while browsing my local craft supplies store on a trip to get something entirely different (ever notice how you go in with one item in mind and come out with several other project elements? Just me? Oh…).
This card is a 5 by 7 inch card that fits standard envelopes for cards of that size but can be resized easily within the software.
Print and Cut for Quick Assembly
I was in a pinch for an embellishment type I wanted to use so I made them myself and the DIY is in the instructions. You can go all paper piecing with this card or Print and Cut some or all of the sentiments and designs, even the layered panels don’t have to actually be layered; it’s up to you. As with many cards some portions can be swapped out for or covered with some of the wonderful Digital Papers from the Pazzles Craft Room, a comfortable place to be inspired.
Cardstock – fine textured dark brown; dark brown and cream fall embossed cardstock, smooth red, orange, yellow, cream
Printed patterned paper
Burlap – two pieces, about 2 by 4.5 inches
Dimensional foam stickers – 8 small, approximately ⅛ inch square or diameter
Dot embellishments (or make your own, see below for *DIY dot embellishments trick)
Glue pen or crafter’s tape
E6000 (optional for DIY dot embellishments)
DIY Dot Embellishments Bonus Idea:
To make your own dot embellishments, start by squeezing small dots of hot glue on a piece of parchment, moving the glue gun in a fine circular motion while pulling up. Let cool, peel, and adhere to the card with a tiny amount of additional hot glue on the back or with E6000 adhesive (longer drying time) applied with a toothpick. Color them with Sharpie or paint pen or nail polish prior to adhering them to the card. Do try gold!
