So Thankful

Here is a quick and easy fun card made with the set 'Sew Thankful'.  The image is paper pieced with Rustic Chic paper with the top and bottom colored with my Copic Markers.  It is on two different Spellbinders dies, Labels 5 and 20 in two different sizes .... for the image and the words.  I scored the left side five times, 1/8th inch apart using my Scor-buddy, for texture.  This is an example of how design leads to new ideas ..... it needed something else so I stamped the thread at the bottom and colored it but forgot that with Copics it shows on the other side.  So ......

the inside became a pocket for a giftcard, money or check!  I added more of the Rustic Chic paper with a border of the blue CS with buttons stamped on it.  Mistakes lead to creative creations!

Yesterday I was able to do a lot of cleaning out in my studio getting ready to have movers come and move my hutch.  When it is out of my stamping room I will be able to put in a die cut area!!  I am really looking forward to that.  Hopefully it will be started the end of next week.  Hope you all have a great day!

Great combination of several Spellbinder shapes. And definitely one of my favorite stamp sets.
