Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize this month?

I chose the Pilgrims Thanksgiving set for my reveal card and combined this with the older Fall Harvest set on a Double Z Card (see tutorial in Tips and Techniques).

After creating my card base and adding ink distressed layers of light brown and designer paper, I created the “Thanks” borders.  These were punched from white cardstock covered with "Tear-ific" Tape and Pistachio Glitter.  Ribbon was adhered to the back and both sides brought to the front to tie a bow to hold the card shut.

The cute Pilgrims image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic Markers.  After cutting it out, I adhered only on the left side flap so the card can be opened.

The sentiment was heat embossed using Versamark Ink and Teddy Brown Embossing Powder.  I used a Spellbinder Die to cut it out and ink it and layered it on a brown die cut.  I added this to the right front flap and placed it so it was hidden behind the Pilgrim image when the card was closed.

For the inside panel, I embossed the Cornucopia with Teddy Brown Embossing Powder on light brown cardstock.  I colored it with Copic Markers and this gave a great look on the brown.  Also, as I colored over parts of the embossing, it would lighten the embossing.  I loved how this looked and brought out some of the details.

When opened this card creates a wonderful Thanksgiving scene.

I know you will love these new sets for the upcoming season.  Don’t forget to leave a comment – I might be the secret designer with the Grand Prize.
Please hop on over to my fellow designers for more inspiration.
