Expressing Gratitude With Handmade Cards

Thanksgiving Holiday is getting closer. This is one of our favorite Holidays. This is the season we focus on giving thanks to the Lord for all the blessings.

There are many ways we can express our gratitude to others. One way I love is by sending them handmade cards. You pour your love into the cards you make for them and they will appreciate every moment you spend to make it for them.

Today I am sharing some the cards I made as part of the Joyful Stars Blog Hop this month. If you arrived from Marie’s blog then you are on the right track 🙂 The blog hop starts at Joyce’s blog where you can find the whole list of participants.


All cards I made are using the new stamp set, Harvest Wreath (D1662). This one stamp set has lots of beautiful images you can use for Fall theme projects.



The first card, I stamped the wreath straight on the White Daisy card base and added the stamped embellishment, sequins and sparkle clear on it.

The Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors is the best sciccors to fussy cut.



Supplies you’ll need to make these cards:

  • Harvest Wreath stamp set (D1662)
  • Woodgrain Embossing Folder (Z1996) – you can use CTMH embossing folders with any kind of die cut machine like Cuttlebug, Evolution Advanced, Evolution, etc.
  • Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads: Goldrush, Flaxen, Canary, Cranberry, Pear, Olive (retired, new ink pad Fern is best for stamping the wreath and leaf.), Black.
  • My Acrylix stamping blocks: 1″ × 1″ (Y1000), 1″ × 3 ½” (Y1002), 2″ × 2″ (Y1003), 3″ × 3″ (Y1006)

  1. Such pretty cards!! This is one of my favorite new fall stamps, and I love what you did with it! The kraft cards with the embossing are just beautiful!

  2. Great cards Helen. You did a fabulous job with a stamp set that I didn’t like!!! *Ü*
    Sorry for the delay in commenting. I was on vacation.

  3. Helen, these are LOVELY! The white base one is my favorite (of course) but the woodgrain embossing is also fabulous. I love how you embellished each wreath with such perfect placement of lots of different elements…they all work so well because of that. Thanks so much for sharing with the Thanksgiving Crusade. Blessings!
