So thankful

As Thanksgiving approaches, I am feeling very blessed and grateful for all the good in my life....(ok technically since I live in Canada, I already celebrated Thanksgiving...but it doesn't hurt to keep being grateful!  And maybe, someone will cook me a turkey?  Anyone? hee hee)

I decided to pull out my Now and Then collection and make a "so thankful" card.  It is a super simple card to make that I might just have to replicate it many times and send it off to all the wonderful people in my life!

Here is how I made it:
1. Use a 4.25 x 5.5 white cardstock base.  Round the corners on the bottom.
2. Trim two pieces of patterned paper to 4 x 2.75.  Adhere them together (one side will be slightly wider than the other).  Wrap twine around and adhere to the back, attach brad, then adhere the whole piece to the cardstock.
3. Add paper flower diecut..curling the edges up a bit for dimension.  Adhere a button the the middle.
4. To finish off, add sentiment sticker (I used pop dots for extra dimension) and an enamel dot (love these!!).

I wanted to make a special card for my sweet husband so he knows how grateful I am to have him in my life!

Have a wonderful holiday!
