Hi Cheery Lynn friends, it's JULIE here today. In Scotland the Farmers are now ploughing their fields and bringing in their Harvest, which made me think of this wonderful New Release die 'Thankful Harvest'. I love the versatility of it as it suits Thanksgiving cards perfectly and would also be lovely on an Autumn Birthday card or a Recipe Book project to name a few.
I cut out my centre square, highlighting the stitches with a Fineliner pen, also using my Burlap Border as a die cut and a stencil to add some extra interest on to the background.
My Wheatheads I layered twice for extra dimension adding the little bow double layered from the Mistletoe Die.
My Thankful Harvest I cut out in White Cardstock and started to shade the fruit and vegetables with my Copics and the basket I shaded with inks. I filled my Pumpkins and Pepper, layering up twice for a 3D look. My Grapes I kept all the small bits of waste, shaping them on my embossing mat and gluing back in place with a little Silicone glue to raise them up, finally added Glossy Accents to give them a sheen. My corn I had embossed with my die (TECHNIQUE HERE) trimming around the cob and shading with Copics before gluing in place.
