Layered Thanksgiving Card with The Craft's Meow

Hello everyone!!  I have been under the weather over the last little while and haven't had time to craft, but I do have a couple of cards that I completed earlier that I get to share with you today.  First up is this one that is also posted to The Craft's Meow blog.  

Can you feel it??  Fall is in the air and I am super excited to be welcoming it with this fun little card.  I will admit that the fall months and Thanksgiving are my favorite times of the year.....let's not mention how much I love good food and during this time of the year, everything just smells wonderful!!

I created this layered pumpkin card with the Autumn Borders stamp set by coloring three different images and then layering the first one with some of the background cut out of the image on the second one.  For the third layer, I just colored and cut the pumpkin image to layer on top of the second one.  Here is a closer look at the image.....

Here is another shot that shows the layering a little better.  I used foam adhesive to give the image a little bit of a lift and dimension......

The Happy Thanksgiving is stamped from the Speaking of Fall stamp set.  I colored my images with Copic markers.  I also like to add a little bit of white pen accents to my colored images.  The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye and I used some Solid Mandarin bakers twine from The Twinery.  I finished off the card with some stitching with my sewing machine. 

Hop on over to The Craft's Meow blog check out the pictures of the two stamp sets that I used on my card today.  Have a great fall day!!
