I've been busily making both Halloween and Thanksgiving cards to sell at our October Church Fair. I love how I can sit down and stamp all day if I want to, now that I'm retired!
Today I have a Thanksgiving card to share.
I used my brandy-new Mix and Mat - Pinked Edge Die that has this beautiful leaf cut out in the middle of it. I cut it out of Arches Watercolor paper and then colored it by rubbing Distress Inks on my craft mat, spritzing the inks with water, and dragging and pouncing the die cut panel in the colors.
I layered it to a panel of Brown Kraft Core Coredinations paper that I sanded to reveal some of the Kraft Core. I embossed the sentiment in gold on a strip of vellum and attached it over the panel with small brads.
Tomorrow I'll be back with a Halloween Card!
I'm linking my card to:
this is the first time I've used the pinked edge leaf die
