Hey Stamp & Scrapbook Expo friends and fans, Becki here to share with you a hand stitched Thanksgiving card. I’m thrilled that November is finally here. It’s my favorite month of the year! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and my birthday month. Today I have a Thanksgiving themed card to share with you that I created with the Vintage Blessings collection from Simple Stories. This card could be used a couple of different ways. I think it would be a great thank you card or an invitation to Thanksgiving dinner. Because I’m not hosting Thanksgiving at our home, I will be using it as thank you card. This collection has such a warm, cozy, homespun feeling so I decided to emphasize that feeling throughout the card. The main embellishment on this card is the quilted heart. There was stitching printed around the heart so I decided to do some hand stitching on top of the printed stitching. I used cream embroidery floss (all six strands) for my hand stitching.
Hand stitching makes such a big impact on this card. It only took about 20 minutes to do all of the stitching on this card. I LOVE how it turned out. I can’t wait to share this card to thank our extended family for hosting Thanksgiving this year. Do you create Thanksgiving themed cards? Are you creating Thanksgiving cards to use as invitations or to thank your hostess? I’d love to hear what you’re creating.
Thank you for stopping by the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog to see my hand stitched Thanksgiving card. I’ll be back next Thursday for another edition of Inspiration Station. I’ll see you then!
