November Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Pals Blog Hop. We are thankful you stopped by! This month we are showcasing projects that show our thanks, including both thank you and Thanksgiving themed projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from stop #22 Lisa Ann Bernard's Queen B Creations. You are on stop #23. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog to see all of the amazing projects.

My first card's base is the Under the Tree Specialty designer series paper. Meant to be Christmas themed, this bold Early Espresso stripe can be used for any occasion. I added a burlap leaf cut with Autumn Accents Die as a base for the sentiment leaf cut from Crumb Cake. I stamped a sentiment from For All Things in Early Espresso ink. I accented my leaf with a Very Vintage button tied with Linen Thread. Underneath the leaves is a band cut from the same designer series paper, but I turned it over and used the opposite side. I adde a piece of Venetian Crochet Trim using Mono adhesive.

I changed the elements on this card. I used the same Autumn Accents Bigz Die, but I used two leather scraps in brown and red. On to of those I added another leaf cut from a piece of Burlap Ribbon. There is a Naturals designer button on top of the smallest leaf. Under my sentiment and leaves is a band made from Cotton Ribbon.

Hi Patti! Love your cards :) I've used leather in the past too and love the look. Did you know that you can use our embossing folders to add unique texture/pattern to the leather? It's totally cool!!

Patti MacLeith said...

Thanks, Nicole! I'll have to try using embossing folders to add texture to leather!
