Give Thanks, Always
Stampin’ Up! hit it out of the park with this Come to Gather Suite, which includes traditional and non-traditional Thanksgiving colors. While the majority of the colors are darker and traditional, there are some lighter, more southern Thanksgiving colors. However, for this Global Design Project card, I used the darker, traditional colors., including Pretty Peacock, which I totally love in this suite.
Let’s get right down to it; here’s the Global Design Project #206 challenge banner:
Here’s the card I created:
Layers and More Layers
While the challenge sketch is clean, for some reason, I went with a collage approach for my card. In order to get all the layers and depth I wanted, I used dimensionals and mini-dimensionals. The Pretty Peacock stamped leaf on vellum cardstock, and one of the embossed maple leaves are flat on the background.
I used dimensionals under the horizontal banner and also for the sentiment banner. I adhered the two maple leaves in the front with Tombow liquid adhesive flat on the horizontal banner.
The double pumpkin cropped set are adhered flat on the sentiment banner. I popped up the larger pumpkin on dimensionalson the left and Tombow on the right.
The double bow I created using the Cajun Craze twine for this card is one of the first ones for which I’ve liked the outcome. I used glue dots to adhere it to the very bottom of the pumpkins.
After I dry-fit, then adhered all the pieces down, I decided I needed to add some bling. I didn’t want to add pearls or metallics, so I grabbed my clear Wink of Stella and colored all the fully colored Cajun Craze leaves on the DSP background.
I finished up this challenge card with the background DSP for the envelope flap. Then, on the bottom left front corner, I stamped a large pumpkin in full strength Cajun Craze, then a stamped off double pumpkin.
With that, another Thanksgiving card was complete.
Thank you for stopping by today.
Have a Peachy day!
