Moving on

Time to move on to Thanksgiving. I'm not sure how many people actually send Thanksgiving cards, but I try to send them to family members I won't see.
For the first card, I thought I'd try a grid layout. I don't think I've ever done this style of card before. It can be somewhat tedious to line up the elements evenly. I "think" I came pretty close!
This first card uses the acorn image from The More The Merrier and the sentiment from Loads of Love Accessories. Probably not your usual choice of sets to use together! I used classic fall colors, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.

I'm trying to get in the habit of showing the insides of my cards. Here I used the pumpkins from Loads Of Love Accessories all across the bottom of the card.

This next card I really like alot. I stamped my own background papers. I used the large oak leaf stamp from Lovely As A Tree. I used the rock and roll technique to get the color variations on the leaves. Then on the More Mustard layer, I stamped the small leaf image from the same set.
The turkey image is from Voila To Go. I watercolored it with inks and blender pens. The sentiment is from Holiday Best. I did pop the sentiment up with dimensionals.

For the inside of this card, I stamped the oak leaf image again in Always Artichoke for a tone on tone look.
I don't make many square cards, these are 5" square. I had fun making these ones.
Thanks for looking!
All supplies are Stampin'Up!
