Do you get a table/tablecloth/place setting feel? Cuz that was my goal. See the lovely gold touches?
I must tell you, this card was actually a byproduct of another project. The SSS Giving Thanks die came to live at my house last year. Well it earned its keep, being the star of this year's place cards. You can check them out in this post.
So I took one of the leftover negative images and used it as a stencil to ink up my "tablecloth" on this card. I inked the area a bit smaller than the die originally is, to accommodate my 4x4 pattern of wonky squares from Vignette: Retro Mod Shapes. I used Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmelade and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks to sponge the BG. I stamped the squares with SSS Audrey Blue and Khaki. Then highlighted a few with Delicata Gold.
I gold embossed the place setting from Vignette: Eat Drink Be Merry onto CS and swiped Audrey Blue ink over it before cutting it into a square.
I gathered up the die cut letters to create "thanks", inked up the bottom half and adhered them. Bon appetit!
Hope you have time to head on over to STAMPlorations and check out the hop. If you comment on all the stops by Nov 27th you may win a stamp set of your choice. And there's a sale going on too. Happy Thanksgiving!
