Thankful - Papercraft Star

Hi, I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! This week at Papercraft Star, the challenge is to include some type of flourish on your project. Today I have a couple of fall inspired thank you cards to share with you. 

I used kraft cardstock for the base of my card and cut my main images (scallop circle, circle and flourish tree) using my Silhouette SD. I cut the flourish with my Big Shot and cut it apart to give the flourish a new look. The circle in the middle of the scallop is cut from the Text Writing Backgrounds Card Makers Series 141 from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.

I then added a button tied with some string from a tag and added a leaf that I had left over from my fall card a couple weeks ago, it too was cut using my Silhouette.

I was so inspired that I decided to make two cards.

I cut a banner shape to put my main images and added the same embellishments as the other card. For texture and interest I added some cord and some staples. 

I hope you enjoyed my projects today and are inspired to play along with us this week at Papercraft Star! For your chance to win prized from our sponsor The House Across The Bay, please have your entries linked up on the PCS blog by 6:00am EST on Monday November 7th.

This isn't the "typical" card for a flourish, that is for certain ! You always have your own little stamp on things you do, always fresh and new.

Regan these are simply perfect fall cards! The colors and patterned papers are wonderful! I love the way you made the flourish from the digital image!
Kindest regards,
