Give Thanks

Happy Saturday! It's the beginning of September and that means the fall creating can begin. I love this time of year! Today's card features Give Thanks and the brand new coordinating dies.

For the wreath, I ink blended marmalade, buttercup and parsley inks onto white cardstock and splattered with gold and brown paint. Next, I stamped the leaf image with wheat ink over the background and die cut the images out. I stamped the berries with wheat onto brushed gold cardstock and die cut. Originally I left them plain, but decided to add paint splatters to them too.

I embossed the thanks sentiment with gold powder, die cut and stacked with 3 more plain die cuts to create depth. I assembled the wreath as seen, adding more paint splatters afterwards. I glued the word in place, added foam tape to the back and set aside to make the background.

The background is really easy. I die cut the panel, placed the Leaf Branch stencil over the top and inked with antique linen distress ink. I splattered with gold and brown paint and stamped the sentiment with walnut stain distress ink. I matted the panel with dark brown, put it on a white card base and attached the wreath to the front.
