Happy Thanksgiving Card

Hi everyone it is with a heavy heart I share my last Just For Fun project for the design team but all good things must come to an end. However I will be entering their challenges.

I decided to do a Thanksgiving card using once again the Stamptangle Maple Leaf.

I stamped my leaf on Kraft card stock. Then used a cosmetic sponge to apply pan chalk. The cosmetic sponge gives a deeper coloring than using a cotton ball. If you are into using pan chalks you will have to experiment.

I decided to leave a border when I cut out the leaf. Usually when I hand cut I try to cut on the line.

I love how my debossed background turned out using distress ink pads and an embossing folder. It is always a surprise when the embossing folder is opened. For this piece I directly stamped with the ink pads using Straw,Mandarin Orange, and Vintage. I stamped on the raised side of the folder. Then I sprayed yellow cardstock with water and embossed like usual.

Keep in mind your results will be different depending on which side of the folder you stamp on. Also keep in mind that in places the cardstock color will show. If you don't like how it turned out don't be so hasty to throw it out. You can always cut it in strips to use as a border, in shapes, etc.

The sentiment was done in PhotoShop and then I printed it out. I haven't really played with PhotoShop much lately so it was fun to do some playing.

That's all folks. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting. Also reminding you that you still have time to enter the Just For Fun Fall Challenge.
