My Sheri Crafts Challenge #123: Thanksgiving

Our challenge @ My Sheri Crafts asks simply that you create a project that's Fall or Thanksgiving related -- so let's see yours!

Simplicity ruled for me, as a family emergency consumed several days. All ended well, so that's ALL that matters in the end and I now need this card for a neighbor that helped me in my time of need. I designed this card with him in mind and kept it very simple and as masculine as I could. I chose Kraft CS and a deep red-orange Bazzill CS to add behind my Spellbinders' die-cut bottom edge. Using JustRite's stamp set (Give Thanks Nested Frames & Occasions - retired) and two coordinating Just Rite die sets (retired), I stamped my leaf/acorn frame and sentiment and popped them up with foam dots for dimension atop my brown ribbon. That's it for me now, but I'll be watching for your project @ MSC!!!

Marge, This may be simple, but it is very warm, inviting, and wonderful! I just got the Grand Calibur for my birthday and the first thing I did with it is use one of the SB's fancy edge cuts! I just love the look of it and it really adds something to the card! Love the use of the JR stamps too!
Happy Thanksgiving!

This really is a lovely card and to find time to make one was remarkable, I would not have been able to. Your card is perfect for a man to receive , so clean and thoughtful .
