Thanksgiving Card - Vintage Flare


A Sweet Little Pilgrim Boy brings softness to the bold Holiday card


This card has so much texture  but comes together nicely with help from a few Anna Griffin Tools.

I have embossed the brown cardstock with one of Anna's fall embossing folders and brushed it with some gold ink (Dew Drop - brilliance - Galaxy Gold).  Then I cut out fall leaves in four coordinating earth-tone fall  colors with one of Anna's leaf  dies. 

Topped off the leaves with hemp cord and 2 handsomely textured, coordinating buttons.

I really like the overall welcoming feeling of this card. 


Supplies:
Cardstock - Several earth tones  (Cream, Burnt orange, pumpkin, latte, coffee, Dark Brown)
Pattern Paper: Stripped (Old CTMH)
Dies:  Anna Griffin Fall leaves
Embossing folder: Anna Griffin Fall folder
Two buttons
Twine
Ink -Dew Drop - brilliance - Galaxy Gold (to add color to embossed image
Image - Printed vintage postcard
Tombow adhesive
