Birch Bark Card

I'm ba-aack!!!

I know I have been seriously MIA on the blog front this summer but I am back!  I have all of my blog glitches fixed (after watching lots of YouTube videos ;) and doing some reading) and things are good to go!  Technology and computers are NOT my strong suit but I am ready to conquer this blog thing!

This was fun fall card to create!

Today I want to share with you a card I created for a card swap.  It features a kit you may have overlooked in the Holiday catalogue called "Thankful Tablescapes" (item #133463).

 I LOVE the components in this kit!!   It has lots of fun products that can be used for many crafting projects!  One of my favorite components is the birch bark paper.  The texture on this paper is FABULOUS!

 I used that paper as my inspiration for this card and the rest of the design followed.  I used some gold embossing to brighten things up and give a bit of shine.  Gold is s big trend this season!  I also used the greeting from the "Best of Greetings" (Best of 25 years) set. (item #133485 clear).

Check back this week for another card featuring the Thankful Tablescapes kit!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a great card. I'll be looking at the Thankful Tablescapes in a new light now. Great use of the birchbark.

  2. Thanks Penny! I wasn't a fan of the kit until I got it and now I have used so much of it I need to order another one :)
