Thankgiving Mum

So this digi mum has been printed out & in my stash since last year....and I forgot about it until yesterday. I do love making cards for the very last second, though :) It's not like they go bad if they don't get used until next year!


Supplies: digi mum image from Graphics Fairy; patterned paper from MME; kraft die cut & natural twine in a bag of goodies from Barb; Cuttlebug embossing folder; buttons from stash; Tonic edge distresser

After running the edge distresser around the printed piece, I then gently folded up the edges to rough them up a bit more, and then mounted it with foam tape. 

little red wagon is having a Thanksgiving challenge this week, and Papercraft Star's inspiration photo  with orange flowers & straw had me remembering this image & reaching for the kraft paper! 

xoxo,
Jessi

What a beautiful card! You always find the coolest things for your cards. I'm going to find that image, too. It's beautiful and totally looks hand colored!

Lindsey said...

Maybe I'd actually use at least one of the Graphics Fairy images I dutifully save if I printed a few out... glad you remembered this one at just the right time for this pretty card.
