Thanksgiving Card Free Tutorial

Thanksgiving Card Free Tutorial

I pulled together two stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!’s 2021-2022 Annual Catalog to create this Thanksgiving card — Beauty of Friendship and Banner Year. The card goes together easily and quickly. Enjoy the free tutorial below.

Thanksgiving Card Free Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! Supplies:

Cutting & Scoring:  

  • Basic White – 8 ½” x 5 ½” scored at 4 ¼”, 5 ¼” x 4”, 3 ¾” x 2 ½”
  • Gold Foil – ¼” x 5 ¼” (2)
  • DSP – 5 ¼” x 1 ½”
  • Ribbon – 4”


  • Die cut the 3 ¾” x 2 ½” Basic White Card Stock with the Stitched Rectangle Die that measures approximately 2 ¼’ x 3 ½”
  • Stamp the tree trunk/branches image with Early Espresso ink onto the die cut rectangle.
  • With Cajun Caze ink, stamp the large, more solid-looking foliage stamp on top of the trunk, creating a tree image. Set aside.
  • Choose the “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set and stamp with Cajun Craze ink in the bottom, right-hand corner of the 5 ¼” x 4” piece of Basic White card stock.
  • Tape the DSP piece (pattern shown above) to the 5 ¼” x 4” Basic White card stock, with the top edge about 1 ½” down from the top. Add each Gold Foil strip, one on top of the DSP and one on the bottom. These are nudged close to the DSP, but do not overlap.
  • Fold the 8 ½” x 5 ½” Basic White card stock in half. Adhere the 5 ¼” x 4” stamped and decorated piece on top of this.
  • Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the tree piece and place on the card front, on the left-hand side.
  • Tie a knot in the ribbon and place on the tree image with a Glue Dot. Trim ribbon as necessary.
  • Add three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.
