Thanksgiving Paper Pieced Pumpkin






With the holiday only two days away, my card is all about fall, pumpkins, and Thanksgiving.  In the rush to Christmas, Thanksgiving is sometimes shoved into the background but it is such an important time to let others know how grateful we are for them and also to remind ourselves how blessed we are.



Just For Fun's Stamptangle Tall Pumpkin is heat embossed in white onto 4 different decorative cardstocks and paper pieced together.  A little distress ink was sponged around the edges of each pumpkin layer.  This was adhered on top of a die cut background, cut with Spellbinders’ Leaves a Fallin' Decorative Card Front die.  The Branch image from JFF was stamped in brown and fussy cut.  Pieces of it were tucked behind the pumpkin.



The Happy Thanksgiving sentiment is from the JFF Sentiments 1 Unmounted Sheet.  It was stamped in brown and tucked under some fiber wraps and a silk bow. 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
