Thankful with Stinkin' Inkers!

This  month's theme at Stinkin' Inkers is "Thankful".  With so many tragedies happening, it's the perfect time to try and remember what, and who, you are grateful for. I know my gratitude list would be miles long. And if no one told you today, let me be the one to tell you that I'm grateful you're here.

I decided to challenge myself a bit and use nothing but my CAMEO to make a card.  I hope you like it:

What I used to Make my Card:
White Square Card Base
Silhouette CAMEO Designs: Leaf Wreath, by Dresden Carrie, #225912 & 225903
Various Brown Card
Green Card Panel
Authentique 6x6 Paper Pad, Harvest, #HVT008 {retired but available}

After I cut all the pieces out, using the CAMEO, in different shades of brown, I wove the large leaf through the wreath in various places.  I lightly glued the wreath to the green panel - just enough to stick it to the paper, but leaving lots of places open so I could tuck the little leaves around.  I began to tuck the small leaves around the wreath and I decided I needed just one more color.  So I pulled dark brown card out of my stash and just cut the smaller leaves - one of my favorite things about the Silhouette is the ability to pick and chose what to cut, and that you can cut as many as you want with the touch of a button.

After I was happy with the leaves, I took my cutout of the word "Thankful", which was cut from the Authentique patterned paper and them attached to the wreath.  Easy card to male and send to someone your thankful for. I hope to see your creation at the Stinkin' Inkers Thankful Challenge! Thank you for reading my tutorial ~ hugs, Christi
