Happy Thanksgiving - Cornucopia

Hi, everyone!  Kelli here and I have a Thanksgiving card to share with you!  Can you believe that it's only one week from today?  Wow!  I absolutely love this time of year, but hate that it just flies by in the blink of an eye.  (I rhymed, lol.)  Now, onto the card for today!  I used the super fun Harvest Season stamp set by Lawn Fawn which I stamped in Memento - Tuxedo Black ink.

Even though the image isn't very big, I used a lot of Copics to color it, so I'll just list them.

I decided to try something I've never done before with the layering.  I basically went from back to front (if  it were 3D) and cut out separate parts of the image and popped them up on dimensional adhesive.  It took more time than I was expecting but I think it was worth it!  When you are doing this, I think it makes a huge difference when you go around the outside edge of the card stock with the Memento - Tuxedo Black marker so that you can't see the white core of the paper.  I feel like it just gives you a clean, finished look.

For the leafy yellow paper I used the leaves that came with the Harvest Season stamp set and just randomly stamped them in different fall colors creating a coordinating patterned background.

The sentiment is from the same set as the cornucopia and leaves.  I love how the style of all three are similar since they are from the same set, so it all ties together really well!  I finished off the card with a little linen thread and tied it into a bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!  :)


Kelli, this card is awesome! I love the Thanksgiving colors and the layered colored stamp! That's very cool... especially the popped up grapes. :)

This is really festive, love the fall colors. I thought the stitching was real until I looked up close, not I think it's marker. If it is marker I really NEED to know what brand or what color. Hugs!

@Melissa - The stitch lines were done with the Signo Broad Uniball White Gel Pen. I hope that helps! :)
