Give Thanks

This week's blogger challenge theme is leaves.  I put together this texture filled design with a little inspiration from the current Curtain Call challenge and this week's sketch at Retro Sketches

Give Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Papertrey InkMy leaf is a large maple leaf from the Papertrey Ink Leaf Prints stamp set.  I die cut the leaf from orange cardstock, then stamped the solid image on the die cut piece in orange ink and added the veins on top with kraft pigment ink.

To make a backdrop for the leaf, I die cut a large stitched circle from a kraft cardstock panel.  The panel was backed with a piece of burlap, then wrapped with some orange twine.  I stamped the "give thanks" sentiment from the Falling Leaves set in brown ink on the kraft panel, then added the leaf on top.  The panel was adhered to a piece of cream cardstock, then adhered to a dark brown card base.

Materials Used:
Leaf Prints and Falling Leaves stamp sets, Leaf Prints dies (Papertrey Ink); Memento Luxe Toffee Crunch and Rich Cocoa ink (Tsukineko); Fizz ink (Avery Elle); Pumpkin Pie and Close to Cocoa cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); stitched circle die (Lil' Inker Designs); burlap (Michaels); orange baker's twine (Divine Twine)
