Cheery Lynn Designs Give Thanks
The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs is Give Thanks. I decided to make a Thanksgiving card. This poor holiday gets shoved out by Halloween and Christmas. I began my card with copper metallic card stock, 5 x 7 inches, adding a piece of cream card stock that I dressed up with my Lace Edger. I added a panel embossed with the fabulous Foliage Embossing Plate. This paper is quite heavy but look at all the lovely detailing (I chose to use the debossed side, the innie instead of the outie!) I used my Silver Coved Rectangle Stacker to die cut the Thanksgiving sentiment.
Now came the fun part, using my Dimensional Small Leaves 1, Dimensional Small Leaves 2, and Dimensional Large Leaves 2 dies, I cut an assortment of leaves using glossy paper. To get all the beautiful veining on these dies, you must also emboss them with your rubber mat. Using stipple brushes and dye inks, I added fall colors to the leaves. I created the flower using my Embellishments #1 and then added some Iris Leaves for final accents.
