Happy Thanksgiving, my friends! I hope you are having a blessed week with family and friends (whether you celebrate or not) and enjoying some fun times. My work is cut out for me this week but looking forward to having my youngins home, even if it’s just a day or two. I needed just one more Thanksgiving card to send out so I decided to use this super fun sketch for it. Lighthearted Leaves came out in the 2015 Holiday Mini Catalog and I hoped it would stick around but it retired with that catalog. Of course, you all know by now how much I love Autumn so I kept it in my stash.
This card was lots of fun to make! I hadn’t embossed in so long! This leaf stamp was begging to be colored in some beautiful Fall colors and the new DSP had some wonderful coordinating colors, don’t you think? All I did was heat emboss then colored with ink and a blending pen. After putting the layers behind the focal points of the sketch, I remembered that I had some leaves cut in copper foil in my desk pile – somewhere – LOL. I did find them though and love how they seemed to pull it all together just a little bit better. Adding some copper metallic thread was the finishing touch.
