Thanksgiving brings grateful hearts


Hello Ai friends, and Happy Friday!
I cannot believe next week is Thanksgiving can you! So much to be grateful for... With that thought comes this card I made using a beautiful Cornucopia image from Art Impressions SKU# U2493. I LOVE this image, and loved coloring it with my alcohol markers, then matching it with some lovely fall harvest designer papers. Love the combination of rusts, reds, browns, olives and yellows. My card size is 6" x 5-1/2". I seem to love that size lately. After layering my kraft card base with rust cardstock and designer papers, I distressed the edges and sewed them together with my sewing machine. Then I stamped the Cornucopia image with black ink onto cream cardstock. Colored it with a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. Cut the image out and distressed the edges with Vintage dye ink. I popped my image up with 3M foam tape for dimension. I die cut various leaves with Spellbinder dies. For some added texture I ran two of the leaves through embossing folders. I distressed the edges with Vintage dye ink. Added three color coordinated buttons for the final embellishments.


Here is a close-up of the colored image and die cut leaves. For the inside of my card I used a really beautiful Ai Thanksgiving script sentiment, SKU# J167.




I hope you have enjoyed the Thanksgiving card I made. Please stop by tomorrow and see what our fabulous new design team member Zora has in store for you! Thank you for visiting the Ai blog and have a safe and wonderful weekend!
