Cornucopia 04982 For my Thanksgiving card, I stamped the beautiful Horn of Plenty, colored it with Copics, then die cut it. A gold, leaf border die cut square was added underneath before attaching to a large chocolate colored layer. 

Cornucopia xcu 04991 I used a Cheery Lynn Chrysanthemum die to make the white flower and a CL sunflower die on the yellow flower. I also used a CL fanciful flourish die. Embedded in my corner fall corsage arrangement, I have my non-craft item…the netting. It’s actually from a bag of lemons and I used an orange Copic to make the yellow a bit deeper. A little raffia tied in a loose bow adds the finishing touch. The tag was die cut and stamped with the Small Happy Thanksgiving and I used a Copic to color the border of it.
Cornucopia inside 04989 On the inside, I used a leftover narrow frame that I also colored w/ Copics, some leftover chrysanthemum petals and a band of the chocolate on which I stamped the small Maple Leaf.
Cornucopia env 04997 As an extra non-craft item, I used my envelope punch board to make a sturdy envelope out of an old calendar page. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
