Happy Thanksgiving with Tamara Dixon



Every day is filled with blessings, large and small. Scripture instructs us to be thankful at all times, but it is still to fun to have a special day set aside each Fall for giving thanks, don't you think? For this week's share, our Guest Designer, Tamara Dixon, has created a gorgeous card celebrating this extra special day of Thanksgiving.

To make her card, Tamara used an image and sentiment from the "Autumn Blessings" set. She combined a gate fold with an easel layout.


Tamara used some of the glorious "Fall Harvest" papers by Tim Coffey (K & Company) to set the stage of her card, along with richly-colored cardstocks by Bazzill.  She cut out the image and sentiment pieces using the "Petite Ovals" and "Petite Scalloped Ovals" dies by Spellbinders. She also inked these pieces lightly around the edges, giving them a little visual "pop" along with a very elegant and polished look! Finally, Tamara accented the area around the sentiment piece with a few brown "baby bling" rhinestones by Want2Scrap. The final result is a "card" that is an delightful gift as well! Who wouldn't cherish having this to display on their mantel throughout the holiday?

Thank you, Tamara, for blessing us with your share today! To see more of Tamara's lovely creations, please stop back next Wednesday, or visit her gallery at Splitcoast Stampers.
