I think our Waltzingmouse Fanatics colours are perfect for this autumn themed Thanksgiving card. I really like the clean, graphic lines of the sketch. I embossed the smaller squares with dots for some texture and attached them to the contrasting card and adhered the panels to the card base. I inked up the solid leaves using the rock 'n' roll technique, stamped off onto some scrap and then stamped on the white panel with the second and third generation impression - which gives a nice subtle background. I inked the sentiment in Early Espresso and stamped onto the card. I stamped the cluster of oak leaves and acorns onto some scrap white card, coloured it with Promarkers and then cut it out. I attached the leaves with some silicon gel to give a little dimension. The inside is simply a mat of Cherry Cobbler and white card.
Calling all you Waltzingmouse fanatics out there - I know there a quite a lot of you!!
