Being Thankful for you card

Hello again!

I am back to share an autumn thankful card.  This card was inspired by the sketch at Mojo Monday and Quietfire's new Being Thankful stamp set.  Unlike the quick and easy tag I shared in the previous post, this one took a little more time but was well worth it!
The base was made from Kraft card stock.  Patterned paper from Tim Holtz' paper pad, French Industrial, was cut to size and Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain applied.  Quietfire's "Being Thankful" and "For You" was stamped using black Archival ink on scrap Tim Holtz paper.  Forest Moss and Vintage photo were applied to the edges.  Kraft card stock was dry embossed using a TH Sizzix embossing folder.  Vintage Photo was applied on the swirls.  The newly released Stickles in Rose Gold was applied to some of the swirls.  Spellbinders die from Gold Circles One die cut orange TH paper and distressed.  Card board was die cut from Spellbinders Little Leaf Sets and from Assorted Leaves.  Clear Crackle was applied on two of the dies and stain was added after they dried.  One die cut was left unfinished and only had Wild Honey Applied.  The smallest leaf had more of the Rose Gold Stickles.  Seam binding and Distress Stains in Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Mustard Seed, and Forest Moss made the bow.  Below is a closeup:

  1. Whoa, girl, this is just fantastic! The composition is spot on. Love how your sentiment guides the eye around your focal. The colors are rich and of course the deign has everything, lines, shape, texture and depth. Nicely done! Thanks for dropping this off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create. I'm sitting here working on a project for Tuesday using the same palette. I hope my outcome is one fourth as dramatic as your...I would be over the moon.
