Thanksgiving brings grateful hearts


Hello and Happy Friday!
I cannot believe next week is Thanksgiving can you! So much to be grateful for... With that thought comes this card I made using a beautiful Cornucopia image from Art Impressions SKU# U2493. I LOVE this image, and loved coloring it with my alcohol markers, then matching it with some lovely fall harvest designer papers. Love the combination of rusts, reds, browns, olives and yellows. My card size is 6" x 5-1/2". I seem to love that size lately. I first stamped my image with black ink onto cream cardstock. Colored it with a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. Cut the image out and distressed the edges with Vintage dye ink. I popped my image up with 3M foam tape for dimension. I die cut various leaves with Spellbinder dies. For some added texture I ran two of the leaves through embossing folders. I distressed the edges with Vintage dye ink. Added three color coordinated buttons for the final embellishments.


Here is a close-up of the colored image and die cut leaves. For the inside of my card I used a really beautiful Ai Thanksgiving script sentiment, SKU# J167.




I hope you have enjoyed the Thanksgiving card I made today. Have a fabulous and safe weekend and thank you for visiting.

Tammie, this card is so lovely! Your coloring is just perfect - I love the way to mix and match markers and inks! The textured leaves and background papers really make your design complete.

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
