Thankful Blooms - Dies R Us

November is the month to celebrate, and be thankful with family and loved ones. What better way to share how thankful we are than with a card? This time at Dies R Us we invite you to join our Thankful challenge. For your inspiration I made a Fall themed card, with lots of die cuts.

Supplies
Dies - Spellbinders - Nestabilities - A2 Tranquil Moments / Cheery Lynn - English Tea Party Doily / Spellbinders - D-Lites - Decorative Wrought Iron / Spellbinders Donna Salazar Collection - Carnation Creations / Poppystamps - Dies - Pine Garland / Avery Elle - Elle-ments Dies - Simply Tags: Everyday / Cas-ual Fridays - Casual Vine Fri-dies
Inks - Ann Butler's Crafter's Ink: Tangelo, Sunshine, Berry / Distress Inks: Old Paper, Vintage Photo, Embossing
Stamp - Flourishes: Zinnia stamp set
Papers: Leather textured cardstocks in beige, light brown and white/ Shimmery embossed paper in green / Craft metal

Adhesives - Elmer's Glue-All / Uhu All Purpose adhesive
Tools - Grand Calibur die cutting machine / Zap! heat tool
Other: Inkadinkado embossing powder in Glam Gold / Merletto pearls and crystal stickers / Lara's Crafts Jute twine



The die cut card base sure add lots of detail to the card, but that of course wasn't enough. I layered one side of the card's front with part of a doily die cut and wrought iron die cut. I added die cut leaves, jute twine, and some handmade flowers that I colored with different inks and Inka Gold (see how to here). To finish my design I added pearls, crystals and of course a little tag with a Thanks a Bunch sentiment.
