I must say that the year is zipping by and it is already almost Thanksgiving! This is the inspiration for our challenge at Retro Rubber for the next two weeks. Be thankful! And use the photo for your color inspiration.
I recently purchased a fun die from Cottage Cutz that is the Cornecopia. That was the start for my card, but then came the Retro Rubber inspiration to use a really old Fiskars burlap roller from about 1998, plus Unity Stamp Company’s . . . today I am Thankful set from October 2014.
Ink burlap roller stamp with Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves and roll over white card stock. Trim to A7 size and round corners.
Ink Unity Stamp Company’s . . . today I am Thankful sentiment in Memento Luxe Peanut Brittle, stamp on white cardstock, and heat emboss with clear embossing powder. Die cut with Spellbinders Labels Eleven and ink edges with an Ink Blusher and Memento Luxe Peanut Brittle.
Die cut white cardstock with Cornucopia from Cottage Cutz. Identify each tiny piece and shade to Pastels chalk. This was the quickest and easiest way to color and shade the tiny pieces.
Assemble the card by adhering burlap stamped background to A7 size Kraft card base. Adhere the Cornucopia pieces together with repositionable Xyron adhesive. I ended up moving them around before I was totally satisfied! Apply permanent adhesive to the completed composition and adhere to the card from. Adhere sentiment with dimensional foam adhesive.
