So Grateful with Glitz Design

Happy Thanksgiving week sweet friends!  We've been celebrating gratefulness at Glitz Design this month and I thought I'd add a little pink goodness to the celebration!  There's nothing like getting out of the box and creating something totally unexpected!!  I am usually a very traditional person, so creating a pink Thanksgiving card was a lot of fun and totally off the wall!  I do have to say, thought, I'm kind of loving it!!
I used Glitz Design's Hello Friend 6x6 paper pad and a Whatnots frame for the inspiration for this card.  Love, love, love the colors of these papers and embellishments!  I layered the backside of the Clouds paper onto a white card base, and then I layered the Clouds paper underneath the Whatnot frame and glued the frame onto the card base.  Next, I stamped the leaves onto white paper and cut them out.  I die cut two rustic cream felt acorns and then I die cut two more acorns using white paper covered with Hello Friend tapes.  The tapes make a great contrasting top on the acorns!  I added some ribbon, a grateful tag, and a Happy Thanksgiving tag to embellish the card.
The next card celebrates friendship.  I am so grateful for my friends and I need to make sure they know how much I care about them, so I think this card is perfect for this month's theme!
One again, I used Hello Friend papers and embellies.  I am so loving the new tapes!  They are definitely a new favorite for sure!!  I stamped the Hero Arts Musical Walk onto the Clouds paper and covered it with a sweet circular Peek a Boo.  I added a stamped border on the bottom third of the white cardstock and added two layers of patterned paper from the 6x6 Hello Friend Pad.  I made some banners using the sweet Coral Polka Tape.  I added a little birdie from the Hello Friend Paper Garland to embellish the banner.  I love the garland so much, I am using it sparingly so I don't run out too quickly!!  I just love adding a little bit here and there!  I added a stamped butterfly, Puffy Word Stickers, hand dyed seam binding, and some little rolled flowers to embellish.

I LOVE them both, but the first is for sure my favourite... between the pink leaves and felt acorns, it has so many beautiful elements! And pink IS fun for fall, I have to remember that!!
