Rustic Harvest, Very Best Occasions, Thanksgiving Card, Stampin' Up! 2022 Fall Mini Catalog

Today I thought I'd set my Halloween sets aside and play with some Designer Series Paper on my cards. On top of the pile is the "Rustic Harvest" 12" x 12" DSP so I decided that's what I'm playing with.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Cajun Craze for the layer and the fun layers on top of that are a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White that I die cut the bottom using a die from the "Basic Borders" die set. The tip of that die is about 1-1/4" up from the bottom and and about 1-1/4" over from the left edge. On the right edge the piece measures about 3" from the top to where it's die cut. It's kind of hard to measure things like this. I just set the die on the piece until I thought it looked nice.

The DSP was cut at 2-1/2" x 3-7/8". I taped that down on top of the Cajun Craze card stock.  I textured the Basic White piece using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder and I glued that in place. I prefer the glue because it sticks better than tape because glue gets on those bumpy areas and stays put where tape is everywhere but doesn't stick everywhere.  

The pumpkins are cut from the same DSP and were set in place using Dimensonals. I cut a few extra leaves and glued them in place on and under the pumpkins.

The words are from the "Very Best Occasions" and were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them with the die from the "Stylish Shapes" die set. I set the words in place using Dimensionals and the card was done.

This was a fun and easy card to make. I find it funny how I can type up how I made the card so much quicker than it too me to make it. Though you have to take into account getting out the things you need to make this card. Not everything is left on my worktable.  Most days!!! LOL

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Thanksgiving card,

Another great card using those fussy cut pumpkins! And that textured embossing folder is one of my favorites.
