Thankful - Try Stampin on Tuesday #285

When the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) opens in Toronto, Ont. we know summer is coming to an end.  However, with the high temperatures we have been having, that's  a bit of a relief!  And of course with the ending of summer, school starts, and then Fall, and Thanksgiving.  So, today, with the sketch challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday, I thought I would do a fall card.  And because embossing was an additional option, I embossed the leaves with the new copper embossing powder.

 

Cajun Craze is a good fall colour, so that became the colour of the base card.  A layer of Whisper White, with some texture applied using a stamp from the "Timeless Texture" stamp set was adhered to this base.
In the middle a 2" piece of Cajun Craze cardstock was attached.  On top of that, horizontally, near the bottom was a 1 1/4" strip of Soft Suede cardstock with a 3/8 " burlap ribbon attached to it.
The base for the images was a 1 1/2 by 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White which was also texturized with the same stamp set using Soft Suede ink.

On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, 3 leaves and an acorn were stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with copper embossing powder.  The leaves were die cut using the "Leaflet Framelits"; the acorn was punched using the acorn builder punch.

Each of these were sponged with Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie with the edges sponged with Soft Suede ink.

The leaves and acorn were clustered together and a piece of EarlyEspresso Baker's twine was wrapped around it and tied around into a bow.  A mini pinecone embellishment was suspended under the bow with a piece of  linen thread.
