Gold Pumpkin for Thanksgiving

Julie Warner -

Congrats to Marcie, the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS298)! I chose her Figure Skates Surprise to case. I kept it CAS like Marcie’s card and the general layout, but I flipped it and my circle became a wreath. Instead of designer paper, I gold embossed everything and added my paper as a second layer. Instead of Christmas, I made mine a Thanksgiving card.

The images are all from Our Daily Bread designs. After gold embossing the wreath and the pumpkin, I used a scallop circle die to cut the wreath and the ODBD matching pumpkin die for the big pumpkin. The sentiment was also gold embossed on a piece of white card stock that has a faint gold stripe on it. I added a metallic gold layer and two gold Candi buttons. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
