Fall is in the air, even in San Diego. We still have warm days, but there is a crispness in the mornings. And, though not plentiful, you can find trees with colorful, changing, leaves.
Today’s Thanksgiving card is a Buffalo Check (background stamp) tablecloth with two fallen leaves.
My inspiration for the layout is from Freshly Made Sketches.
And, the colors are from Paper Players.
I began with a card base of Thick Very Vanilla, and layered it with Mossy Meadow cardstock. My next layer is regular weight Very Vanilla cardstock, where I used a Seasonal Layers die to cut two leaves.
Next, I inked the Buffalo Check background stamp with the Mossy Meadow ink pad, and made my tablecloth. I should have stamped before die cutting the leaves, but the idea didn’t occur to me until this point. It was late last night, and I’m sharper in the morning. LOL
To make it look even more like fabric, I used my favorite Subtle Textured embossing folder. Then, my tablecloth was ready to adhere to the Mossy Meadow layer.
I used a second Seasonal Layers die to cut the intricately patterned leaves; one from Cajun Craze cardstock, and one from Crushed Curry cardstock. See how they fit perfectly in the leaf cut-outs?
The sentiment, “Happy Harvest Blessings,” is from the Country Home stamp set. I stamped it in Mossy Meadow ink on Thick Very Vanilla, cut it with a Petals & More label die, and placed it on dimensionals.
I embellished my table with strands of Gold Thread, and three gold sequins from the Metallic Sequins assortment.
Now, I have to go shopping to find this tablecloth for my Thanksgiving table. It will be harder to find the leaves!
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you are seeing lots of pretty leaves.
