Thankful For You

Hello my friends, I'm sharing a Thankful For You card I made with the Grateful Fall Leaves Adhesive Transfer Sheets and Thermoweb Foil that were included in Simon Says Full Of Thanks November Card Kit to wish all my friends in the USA a very Happy Thanksgiving, I am so thankful for their friendship, love and support. The kit is still available to purchase HERE at the time of writing, but supplies are limited. 

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 4" x 5.1/4" and stamped repeatedly with one of the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Brushstrokes stamps, inked with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide.
I trimmed around the adhesive transfer images with Simon Says Fine Detail scissors supplied in the kit, removed the backing and pressed on to the panel. The Adhesive Transfer Sheets can be used with a die-cutting machine or laminator so I decided to give it a try with my Sizzix Foldaway and placed the panel inside folded copy paper.
I removed the transfer pieces which revealed a sticky image of each transfer on the panel. I cut small pieces of the Foil Sheets, from one of the 8 sheets in the kit and from other sheets in my stash. I replaced the panel in the folded copy paper and ran through my Foldaway again.
And voila, as if, by magic, the images and sentiments are now covered in shiny shimmery foil.
To add a little interest to the foil leaves and background, I stamped the script from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Exquisite with Jet Black StazOn because I wasn't sure if Distress Archival would dry on the foil.
I diluted Walnut Stain Distress Reinker with a spritz of water and added splatters.
To finish I matted the panel on to an A2 Kraft HeavyStock card blank.

Happy Crafting
Hugs Kath xxx
