Happy Thanksgiviing


I made this background with autumn-themed dsp snippets I cut with a 1" punch. I glued them on a snippet of cardstock, then embossed the whole piece with a Darice autumn leaves ef, sponging with fired brick distress ink. I ran the panel and card base through the Big Shot with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die. The pumpkins are from MFP, fussy cut and popped up on foam tape, while the tall grasses and green grass panels were cut with SNSS dies. The sentiment was heat-embossed with white powder on black and cut with a SNSS ticket die.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

Double D challenge - Harvest Blessings and/or give thanks

The Little Red Wagon Challenge #366 - Happy Fall Y'All

Perfectly Created Chaos PCC #5 - Heat Embossing

Thanks for joining me today for a little visit, and I hope you're having a splendid Autumn day!
