Thankful for You - Sketch Frenzy Friday

Now that my craft shows are slowing down a bit I am finding more time to participate in challenges.  Certainly I haven't done one with SFF for quite a while, but today I'm doing the sketch and making a card.


I made a Thanksgiving card that has a window in it and a frame around the window.

  • The base card is Soft Suede, layered with first Whisper White cardstock and then Into the Woods DSP.  All layers were sponged with Soft Suede ink.
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the bear from the stamp set "Thankful Forest Friends" using Early Espresso ink.
  • After I attached the DSP and the Whisper White, I used an Oval framelit to create a window in the card. I used the size of the bear to determine which size of Oval framelit to use.
  • The bear was also die cut with an Oval framelit, but using a bigger size than the window.
  • I then adhered the bear to the window on the wrong side of the paper.
  • To create the frame, I used Soft Suede and 2 sizes of Oval framelits and ran it through the Big Shot.  The edges of the frame were then sponged.
  • A Neutrals button was threaded using a tiny sliver of  Early Espresso cardstock and attached to the lower frame with glue dots.
  • The sentiment is from the same stamp set, but it was inked up with markers:  Early Espresso, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze.  It was die cut using the Lots of Labels framelits, the edges sponged, and then adhered to the card front.
