Thanksgiving will look much different for many families this year. The large family gatherings may need to be put on hold and for some, it just won’t feel the same. To help redirect focus from what we’re losing over to what we can celebrate, I designed today’s project as a means to share gratitude with the people we will be celebrating with this year. The Sharing Gratitude Thanksgiving Placecards add a warm, fall touch to your Thanksgiving table and brings the family together to share their gratitude for each other.
Bring a little Autumn to your Thanksgiving Table
We all have something to be thankful for about each of our family members. In addition to tagging people where they’ll be sitting for Thanksgiving dinner, this Impossible card design provides a pocket on the reverse side. Each family member shares a quick note of gratitude for each other, and tucks their appreciation into the pocket on the reverse side.
This project uses the Autumn Goodness bundle from Stampin’ Up and the beautiful foiled paper from the Gilded Autumn product suite. I love the little harvest cart in this set and the sketchy style of the stamps made it easy to quickly color the decorative elements. The designer series paper that I used on the card front features the beautiful Cajun Craze foiled pumpkins. I really had a tough time figuring out how to use this paper on cards; but when I designed this project, it turned out to be the perfect design.
Because this project is intended to be created for families, I created a handout that allows you to make multiple cards fairly quickly. The handout contains instructions and cutting references to make 4 cards. There’s also a page to assemble just one card if you want to simply make an Impossible card. You can even find .svg files for your Silhouette, Scan n Cut, or Cricut machine in the premium area of the Crafty Friends Club Vault.

If you have an electronic cutting machine and want to skip all the manual cuts on this project, SVG files to create 4 cards at once can be purchased from my online store:
