A Little Giving Thanks!

I'm being featured today on Kerri Bradford's blog with holiday ideas. Being that Thanksgiving is only a week away, I thought I'd show a really quick place setting idea!

I started off cutting up a box to get the corrugated cardboard. Then cut out a bunch of leaves on my Silhouette.


I used my Dylusions sprays on my craft sheet and dipped the leaves in, hit them with the heat gun between dippings to layer the colors.


Then with my left-over leaves I created a card for the host!  I cut out "Giving" and Thanks" to do an inside message. "Giving" is sitting on a strip of acetate so I could lift it to create shadows.


I colored the 'Thanks" with YG93 Copic Marker and glued it to the inside.



I hope you enjoy!
