Thankful and Thoughtful November

As we officially head into the holiday season, the Dream Team are challenging all of our followers to be especially "Thankful and Thoughtful" during the month of November. We hope that you will link your creations with this theme in mind on the Dream It Up! blog using the Inlinkz tool. Our "thanks" to you is providing you with the opportunity to win the stencil of your choice, and a bonus stencil of our choosing could be yours for using Dreamweaver product(s) in your artwork. I'm posting this for you today:
Here, I have put together an easy, French themed thank you card.  Aside from some Graphic 45 paper, I used some black coated aluminum, Stencil LS1011 Merci and Stencil LL 447 Fleur De Lis.  I simply ran them through my Cuttlebug with this sandwich:  A Plate, stencil face down, metal colored side down, Stamping Details Rubber Embossing Mat, and two B Plates.  I then used my Teflon Tool from the Metal Beginner Tool Kit to push the metal out a little on the Fleur De Lis.  I filled the back with Mercart Metal Filling Paste.  I let it dry and then sanded all of the metal and attached it to the card.  Done!  So, this week, I was able to make it thankful AND easy!

By the way, the Dream Team are very THANKFUL when our followers are THOUGHTFUL enough to leave us a nice comment on our posts! Here's the "A" team lineup for this week, as well as our very special guest designer, Linda Neff!



  1. This is so pretty! I love the paper with the stenciled metal.

  2. Very cool card Laura! Reminds me of New Orleans.

  3. I have this patterned paper and the stencil - but had not thought of putting the two together! Thank you for the idea. I think that with a change of greeting this would make a brilliant masculine card too.
