Thanksgiving Blessings

>> Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Hi Everyone, 

Now that Halloween is officially behind us, it only seems fitting to showcase a Thanksgiving card on November 1st.  I just adore all of the colors associated with this time of year, so I colored up the new Cornucopia stamp using my Copic markers.  I fussy cut it and then layered it onto a piece of brown card stock and fussy cut it once more, giving it a small dark mat.  

I took inspiration from the colors of the stamped image and made my own background.  Taking a piece of acetate I added some inks, spritzed them with water and then smooshed my paper onto it, giving it a watercolor effect.  


While the background was drying. I stamped the Thanksgiving Blessings in brown ink, adding a punched border to the strip.  When all seemed dry, and before assembling, I rounded the corners on all my card stock and created an embellishment of die cut leaves to finish it off.

Thank you so much for peeking in today!

Pretty border on your sentiment panel and I love that beautiful bg you created!!! Cute punched/die leaves with the bow too!
I love how you matted your cornucopia to match your other matting, great idea to help it stand out from your lovely bg!
