CAS(E) this Sketch 136

The sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch is a pretty simple one that I figured can adapt to any occasion. I chose to make a Fall/Thanksgiving card but I see my self using this sketch to make any other Holiday cards.

I used a stamp set from Karen Foster design called Thanksgiving.

I used the two outline leafs and some Baked Brown Sugar ink.

 I masked off about an inch spot and after stamping I used three different inks and did some blending.

I used from left to right, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Bravo Burgundy.
This was so quick and easy I made up five of them, I was going to make them a one layer card but changed my mind because I wanted to add some twine.

The Happy Thanksgiving sentiment is from a Papertrey ink Back to Basics set.
I cut them down to 4 by 5 1/4 and used the cheater method and taped of the ends to the back of the card.

I used some Celebrate It ribbon/twine from last years Christmas section in Micheal's.
 I purchased these wood element from Hobby Lobby they are called craft embellishments.

I adhered them with glue dots.

I went and cut some 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 Hello Honey panels to adhere to some traditional top folding cards.

I added some foam to the back of the inked panel before putting on the card.
Close up, I wanted to use More Mustard card stock but I was out and it turns out the Hello Honey matches very well to More Mustard.
