News from A Walk Down Memory Lane!

First it's the 15th so I have a new project to share from A Walk Down Memory Lane!

I created this "Thankful" gift card holder to celebrate Thanksgiving. I love autumn and Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love the fact that it's a holiday where the sole meaning is to be thankful for all the blessings in your life. There is no pressure to shop for the perfect gift or spend hours at the mall. In my family we meet at my sister's house and eat a huge turkey dinner and watch football. Pretty typical for Thanksgiving, but my family doesn't all get together very often so it is really special and fun.
So instead of skipping straight to Christmas like most people seem to be doing I decided to create a Thanksgiving gift card holder. It is super easy and perfect for thanking your child's teacher, your Thanksgiving dinner host, or anyone special that deserves a little pick me up. Best of all they wont' be expecting it, because typically there are no gifts for Thanksgiving!
Two patterned papers
Letter stickers

Thankful Gift Card Holder
1. Trim cardstock to 3 inches x 12 inches.
2. Score at 4 1/4 inches and 9 inches.

3. Adhere the right flap on top and bottom of card to form pocket for gift card.
4. Trim patterned paper slightly smaller than top of right flap and adhere.
4. Fold left flap over right flap to form trifold card.
6. Trim a second patterned paper slightly smaller than top of pocket and adhere.

7. Embellish front with chipboard, diecuts, stickers and raffia.
8. Insert gift card and give to someone you are "thankful" for!

I used Pink Paislee Fecthing papers and chipboard on the gift card. The blues and oranges were perfect autumn colors. And best of all Pink Paislee is 15% off al month in the {AWDML} store. Check out the Fetching papers and all the new Mistletoe and Co. and Amber Road lines.
Speaking of Pink Paislee- Since they are the feature manufacturer for November {AWDML} will be holding a Pink Paislee chat night!
