Do any of you enjoy going to dollar stores? I love visiting Dollar Tree. I almost always find some sort of surprise there that I can use in my papercrafting.
A couple months ago, our retail-starved community was treated to a new Dollar General. Recently I was there, browsing through all the autumnal offerings, when I came upon these rolls of burlap "ribbon" in a few fallish colors. And they were a delightful price: $2.00! I immediately was especially taken with this rustic looking teal color and snapped it up, knowing I would find some use for it.
Sure enough, once I got home, I discovered some retired Designer Series Paper in a gingham check with the exact same color in it!
Yay! A Thanksgiving card idea was born.
Awhile back, if you remember, I'd gone a little nuts die cutting from autumnish DSP a plethora of fall leaves. Well, obviously I had a lot of them left over from other projects I'd used them for. Once I'd decided on the notion to use some of these leftover leaves I was set. The card, from there, practically designed itself.
