Harvest Cornucopia Thanksgiving Card

Thanksgiving is a lovely time of year spent with family and friends but it’s also time to give thanks for the bounty of the harvest for the year. My family operates a small farm in Indiana and as farmers we like to take a moment to thank God for all that we have been able to grow and harvest during the year and pray for a favorable crop next year.  Here’s to all of the farmers that make a bountiful Thanksgiving possible…Thanks for all your hard work.

This is a close up of the dimensional detail the Pico Embellisher gives to the pumpkins and gourds. It really makes the image pop.

Directions:

1. Cut a card mat to the desired finished card size – in this case 4.25″ x 5.5″.

2. Use a sponge dauber to apply Celestial Copper Delicata ink around the entire outside 1/2″ of the card.  Set aside to dry.

3. Apply ink directly to the harvest background stamp using the Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor ink pad making sure to work directly across the stamp to keep the colors aligned.

4. Stamp the image on a piece of white cardstock.

7. Stamp sentiment on speckled sand cardstock using Tuxedo Black ink.

8. Die-cut the sentiment; ink the inside edge of the die-cut with Celestial Copper Delicata ink before removing the die to yield a crisp clean edge.  Mat with dark brown cardstock.
