To Give Thanks!

Good morning!  Sherry here today and I have a quick and easy card to share using the new set To Give Thanks.


I had the idea for the image before I started anything else with the card.  The background pumpkin was stamped in VersaMark, sprinkled with copper embossing powder and then the embossing powder was rubbed off.  (I actually came up with rubbing the embossing powder off after a few trial and errors while trying to get this image to work.)  The pumpkin and leaves were water colored with markers and the excess water was dabbed off to create a softer look.  “Happy Thanksgiving” was then stamped over the image and embossed in copper.  The sentiment was then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Small Ovals and while still in the die, was sponged with Antique Linen.  Coordinating paper was die cut/embossed with the Large and Scalloped Ovals.


I pulled out some old KaiserCraft paper from my stash that I thought would go with Thanksgiving and used it for the card.  The edges were distress and then inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The ribbon was dyed with Bundled Sage Distress Stain.  The bottom border for the card was die cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Borders Two.


That’s all for me today!  Thanks for joining me.
