Day of Gratitude CASE

...And a clean and simple card for the Paper Players. This card was inspired by a card made by the great MaryFish. Click here to see her blog and directions on how to make the red die cut. I tipped the card on its side and changed it up a bit. This image is from the new set 'Day of Gratitude which you will find in the current Holiday Mini. I stamped the image in Poppy Parade, cut it out and sponged the edges with Early Espresso. The flower in the middle was made with the 5 petal flower punch. I cut out 2 flowers, sponged the edges, and offset them to make the flower. Then I popped an antique brad in the middle to finish it off. The whole thing was popped up on dimensionals. I finished off the bottom with chocolate chip grosgrain and some of the new buttons and pumpkin pie taffeta ribbon.

The Fun Stuff:
1. Stamps - Day of Gratitude
2. Ink - Poppy Parade, Early Espresso, Soft Suede
3. Paper - Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
4. Accessories - Top Note die for the Big Shot, 5 Petal Flower punch, 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Antique Brads, Neutrals Designer Buttons

Sandra, I loved that you left this card without a sentiment. I think this is a fabulous CASE. You kept the main elements from Mary's card, but made it all your own and I love it.
Thank you for joining the Paper Players this week.
