Harvest Bounty


Hi everyone!  I'm excited that Thanksgiving is only a week away!  We are hoping my husband gets off work so we will be able to spend the day with his family otherwise I'll make us a small dinner at home.  This is a Thanksgiving card I made to send the family.  The image and sentiment are both from the Harvest Bounty digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.   I'm also entering this card in Sentimental Sundays Challenge using a sentiment and reflecting on a "Thanksgiving or Thank You" theme.


My card base is Really Rust layered with White Cardstock then Autumn Blaze Patterned Paper and Old Olive finished on one side using the Deckled Edge Scissors. The image and sentiment are both printed on White Cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers. I punched out the sentiment using the Large Oval Punch and layered it on Really Rust die cut using the Fancy Tags Nestabilities. To embellish the card I stitched around the card base and image, added two green buttons, threaded with Jute Twine and a bow made with grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
