Make It Mailable
It's Monday, and time for another Make It Mailable card! The Thankful Tablescapes kit is packed full of goodies that can be used for card making. I probably won't use it for the table settings it was originally intended to make, so repurposing it into cards works for me. I calculated that I could easily produce 20 cards, with lots left over. Not bad for $19.95! The birch bark paper comes in 3 long sheets, each about 5" x 36" long, and has a lovely texture.
The die-cut maple leaf (there are 10 in the kit) was sponged with Cajun Craze and Real Red. The autumn colors were complemented with a pop of Island Indigo ramdomly sponged on the Whisper White cardstock. And for a little glimmer, some of the fab Gold Foil was added. Even the little banners were cut from paper included in the kit!
