Card Crop: Thanksgiving with Lee

I'm not sure how many of us actually send thanksgiving cards. But I really enjoy the earthy colors of thanksgiving and I just know a card made with such colors would brighten up anyone's space, so lets make a thanksgiving card and promise to mail it to a friend this year!!

Here it is - simple yet elegant!!



1. Cut an a piece of cardstock so it measures 10 1/4 X 6 inches.
2. Score one side 2 7/8
3. Score the other side 3 1/2
It should look like this (with the shortest side being the front page.
4. cut two pieces of patterned paper: one that measures 3 1/4 x 5 3/4 and one that measures 2 1/2 X 5 3/4.
5. Attach lettering down the sides of the patterned paper and attach ribbon. I used Basic Grey letters, worked perfect.
6. Attach the patterned paper to the card stock.
7. Embellish, ink edges and wrap with one larger piece of ribbon.

You'll have until Monday, the 16th at midnight CDT to post your card in our gallery and add a link in the comments here or in the matching thread in the forum {linked} to be eligible for prizes. We'll see you in an hour with another card.
