INVENTORY CHALLENGE NO. 58 - Thanks Giving card.






Good morning friends,
Today for our Inventory Challenge, we have Thanks Giving as our theme; we Canadian celebrate Thanks Giving in October, and we usually don't send any cards... Sooo under the circumstances, I decided to cheat a little bit... and make a thank your card. My problem remained, being taken with some computer problems, and some blog problems, I was all in my head... Thank your Claudia, for always posting some eye candy and total inspirational projects. This week, she had made a more decorated version of her Gate Fold card. That put me on the track, and was complicated enough to tuned my mojo on thinking about only one thing at the time! cause I complicated things quite a lot!

Bon matin chères amies,
Aujourd'hui, le thème de notre défi est ThanksGiving. Mes copines américaines célèbrent en grand cette journée, qui est déjà derrière nous, canadiens. Alors, dans les circonstances, j'ai triché un peu: j'ai réalisé une carte de remerciements. Cependant, j'étais en panne d'inspiration... toute dans ma tête que j'étais! avec un problème d'ordinateur, un difficulté avec blogger. Je remercie donc Claudia queje visite quotidennement, pour partager avec nous ses petites merveilles qui m'inspirent à tout coup. Cette semaine, elle a réalisé encore une fois sa fameuse gate fold card dans une version plus décorée. Je l'ai choisie parce qu'étant un peu compliquée, elle allait réussir à tourner à OFF le piton de mes pensées qui vagabondaient à l'extrême.

A view of the closed card, with beautiful Tilda with Hellebores, stamped on Bristol Vellum and colored with Prismacolor. The edge of my image is embossed with the beautiful Vintage Garden stamps from Stempleglede ( a gift I treasure and one of my essential stamp); I added some distress inks with a sponge, all around: in Tea Dye, Tattered Rose and Shabby shutters.

Une vue de la carte fermée, mettant en vedette Tilda with Hellebores, une de mes images préférée de cette dernière collection. Tilda est étampée sur Bristol Velin, et coloriée avec les Prismacolor. Le tour de l'image est décoré avec la magnifique étampe de Stampleglede, Vintage Garden, embossée avec dela pourdre claire, et encrée à la Distress dans les couleurs suivantes: Tea Dye, Tattered Rose et Shabby shutters.

Opening the first layer reveals Tilda with ribbon, that I "traficated" by adding a cut oval with the sentiment. I distressed the edge of the parchment writing paper, with the Tim Holtz distressing tool, added some inks, and embossed to give the edges some texture. I aslo included a little pocket to insert a gift card, or a personal wish.

En ouvrant le premier pli, on découvre Tilda with ribbon, que j'ai un peu altérée... J,ai collé sur le ruban un oval portant le sentiment, j'ai découpé autour de ses mains, et j'ai glissé la pièce. Le sentiment est imprimé sur un papier parchemin, que jai aussi vieilli, embossé et encré. de l'autre côté, une petite pochette pour y glisser un cadeau.






Under the last layers, I made sure to place a large enough space to write, thought this sentiment was very appropriate for any day in the year. I used the same distressing technique around the parchment paper, and cut this nice vine with a spellbinder.

En ouvrant les derniers plis, on découvre l'espace d'écriture avec un sentiment tellement joli - dommage qu'il ne soit pas en français! J'ai décoré cette carte d'écriture avecla même technique. La jolie vigne décorative est coupé avec un spellbinder.



dont let yourself be impressed by the style of the card, It is more complicated to take a picture of all the folds than making it! however, if it is fun to work with coordinated papers like I did, one can aso use losts of leftovers! Same as using turkey leftovers!!! Improvise...

Ne vous laissez pas impressionner par ce style de carte, qui en soi est vraiment simple à réaliser. C'est la déco qui est un peu longue! Mais très pratique, si je me suis servi d'une collection de papiers coordonnés, On pourrait très bien improviser et utiliser des restes, que nous avons toutes en grande quantité. C'est comme la dinde... on improvise et on crée des recettes avec ce qui nous reste!

Hope you liked this card, and have fun!

Oh que c'est beau!

J'aime tellement les cartes avec un pliage différent. Personne ne peut rester insensible en recevant un chef d'oeuvre pareil.

Vert, beige, ocre quel beau mélange. Quoi dire de l'idée de l'encrage clair avec de la distress autour de ta Tilda. Magnifique.

Grosse bise.

Norma a dit…

LOL, Danielle, I can't see a picture of your ENTIRE card, but the 2 closeups are of beautifully coloured Tilda. You're a master in colouring with you Prismacolors!!! Every time I see one of your cards, you make me want to do one too in coloured pencils. I keep switching back and forth between those and markers. Love the tag you've added to Tilda's banner--inspiring.
Hugs,
Norma
