A very happy Thanksgiving to all of our American friends! Today I'm sharing two cards featuring Bella's 6 x 8 Paper Pads. And what better day to also feature cards that celebrate "Thankfulness" than this day, specifically set aside to reflect on gratefulness!
For my first card, I started with a clear background piece from the IF You Are Loved 6 x 8 Clear Cuts Paper Pad. All of Bella's pretty colors lines up in a row like this makes me extremely happy! :-) For my focal image, I created a cascade of coordinating leaves (which were die cut from the Oh My Stars 6 x 8 Paper Pad). The cute polka dot background layer is actually an Oh My Stars Gift Tag, cut down just a little.
For the sentiment, I die cut the word out of black cardstock four different times. I adhered them all together, giving the sentiment more dimension, as well as making it sturdier. That is important as I smeared glue over the whole top of the sentiment and then sprinkled black glitter on top. The extra layers underneath keep the sentiment from warping. I finished the card off with an She Blooms Mix Enamel Heart.

Thank you cards are definitely the ones I find myself needing the most. Showing gratitude with something heartfelt and handmade is so important to me! For my card, I chose papers entirely from the Addison 6 x 8 Paper Pad. The fun colors and patterns mix so well! I embellished with some stickers from the Addison Fundamentals sheet as well as one of the Addison Designer Clips.
