ScrapMart: Thanksgiving Thanks

Hope my friends in the U.S. had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a VERY low key but productive day - opened windows (in the 60s!) and cleaned the entire house, top to bottom! LOL! Today, it's in the low 30s with sprinkles of snow?! Only in Chicago! LOL!!

With all the Thanksgiving festivities, you will need to thank your host (unless you are the host - lol!), right? So I created a series of thank you card just for you :0)

Market Square Card Folder and Cards by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: American Crafts; Card Base: Core'dinations (David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System); Patterned Papers, Cardstock Stickers, Stickers, Flowers: FarmHouse Paper Company (Market Square Collection); Marker: KURETAKE ZIG (Black Writer); Pearls: KaiserCraft, Want2Scrap and Queen & Co.; Trim: Maya Road; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S2-013 Medallion Two, S2-014 Medallion One, S2-017 Medallion Three, S2-019 Grate Works, S2-021 Medallion Four, S4-161 Labels One, S5-131 A-2 Matting Basics A and S5-135 A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (the Best Glue Ever); Other: Brown Satin Ribbon

I searched online for a folder to fit cards in and found several but I like Mirkwood Designs Card Folder the best. For the inside, I covered with patterned paper and embellished various stickers (border, chipboard and regular) from FarmHouse Paper's Market Square Collection.

On the front, I cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ die templates: S5-131 A-2 Matting Basics A, S5-135 A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader, S4-161 Labels One and S2-017 Medallion Three. To finish, I placed the flower in the center, threaded ribbon, tied a bow and added pearls.

For the cards, I used S5-131 A-2 Matting Basics A on all and then placed various Spellbinders Die D-Lites™ (Upper Left ClockWise: S2-019 Grate Works, S2-021 Medallion Four, S2-013 Medallion Two and S2-014 Medallion One), highlighting one for each card front.

To finish, I added trim, pearls, flowers and wrote a sentiment on the stickers with my ZIG Writer. The folder only holds two but I got carried away and created four! These Die D-Lites are just so cute!!

All the Spellbinders Die Templates are available at! If the die you are looking for is not listed, check back later as we just had a big blow out sale on them and they will need to reorder.

Hope these cards give you some ideas for those thank you cards!

Thanks for stopping by!
