Thanksgiving Greenery

I was much inspired by PTI’s release of Holiday Greens and while I would love to add it to my collection, I’m on a budget and other items were more important to me this month. I am playing with PTI’s Create Along with Us challenge to help me find suitable stand-ins.

Although there was lots of inspiration for the Holiday Greens set, I really fell in love with Lizzie’s Happy Holidays card. Here is my take:

Sprigs & Pinecones | by karen @ carefree creations

I didn’t want to completely copy Lizzie’s card, so I used autumn colors and a thanksgiving sentiment. Sigh, I haven’t even finished my Halloween cards, and I’m already creating Thanksgiving cards. (Probably because I designed my Halloween cards in my head way back in July. I knew I should have stamped them right then!)

While I did use different stamps, my intent was to get as close as possible. I’m quite happy that I was able to use supplies I already have. While there are details to the Holiday Greens set that keep it on my wish list, I know I can make due until I can get it.

The angled edge is just done with a trimmer; I wish I hadn’t made it so severe an angle, but I still like it.

Thanks for taking a peek!
