Update : This card was shown on Lawn Fawn's Fawny Flickr Friday blog. 😊
Finally I had a chance to use this Lawn Fawn's new set, which I bought back in August when they released many amazing stamps and dies. I hadn't had new stamps for Thanksgiving for some years, and this was the perfect for my card I envisioned! And the set was meant to make this "feast table", which I miss, every Thanksgiving with my godmother and her family in VA. Beautiful sky and so many colorful leaves in the scene of Thanksgiving day. This is def. my Thanksgiving day with them, in Virginia! And my most fav. holiday of all.😊
I fussy cut all the stamped images, colored them all. The most tiring process was the leaf! I used one of Lawn Fawn stand alone leaves die set from a couple of years ago, the smallest leaf. I ran through cuttlebug 36 times (to get 36 leaves!) from different "pearlized" card stock I "hoarded" for several years (from Joann or Michaels...can't remember). 6 different colors. The hardest (time consuming) was to place them in the perfect position. The tree stump ("feast table"), mushrooms "chairs", and animals are attached with foam tape, to give a bit of dimension, so leaves had to have foam as well but not all of them.
First, I placed them, took the picture on my cellphone, and started to build up. I used Xyron sticker maker, Ranger's multi medium matte finish liquid adhesive and foam tape, depending on where to place them. In the middle of the process, I changed some positions of leaves. I'm content with how it turned out. The perfect image of my Thanksgiving Day in VA 😊 🍂 🍁🍃🍂🍁🍃
The sentiment is the new die from Lawn Fawn, too. I made it into a banner, making it looks like tying to the trees 😊 Of course, I had to have a cardinal in this scene. I miss seeing the cardinals, too...
I'm submitting Simon Says stamp/Monday challenge. Also uploading it in Lawn Fawn's Flickr Friday.
Hope y'all are having a nice week!
