American Thanksgiving

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me from the Card A Day Blog. I'm finishing off the week for American Thanksgiving cards. 

I've started this card by cutting out a door frame with my Cricut.  I then measured the white cardstock to fit behind the door and stamped the tree image. I added blue to the sky and green for the grass.  I used a make up sponge for this part.  Since my screen is another layer I wasn't too worried about dark places. 

After attaching these two pieces together I layered them on top of my embossed brick paper with a piece of scroll work cut from the Cricut that I had left over from another project.


I stamped, hand cut the pumpkins and layered them by the door.  All of this is layered onto another piece of tan paper, the brown cardstock and the card base.  I did ink around the embossed brick layer.

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget we start a new challenge Tomorrow.
