For my card I used Pilgrim Thanksgiving Stamp set and I love it :-) 

Absolutely love this image sitting on the Burlap background!

The font is lovely and the Black Detail embossing powder... Perfect!
Little touches of glitters made it dimensional.
How I created it:
1.     Cut card base at 5” x 5” from Kraft stock, adhere layer of designer paper cut at 4.75” x 4.5” with Tear-ific Tape.
2.     Die cut using the largest SB labels two die from Burlap Paper. Using that same die trace the outside edge on kraft paper and cut with scissors, this is to give your burlap die cut a matting with the same shape. Adhere again with Tear-ific Tape.
3.     Using dimensional foam tape to adhere the die cut layers to card base, leaving space at the top for embellishments.
4.     Stamp, color with water color pencils and fussy cut image from Pilgrim Thanksgiving. Add a touch of Fire Engine Red glitters to the apples and Autumn Medley glitters to the Turkey tail feathers.
5.     Stamp using VersaMark ink pad and heat embossed sentiment from Pilgrim Thanksgiving stamp set using Black Detail embossing powder on Kraft cardstock.
6.     Adhere both fussy cut image and sentiment on the Burlap die cut using Fabri-tac glue.
  1. Die cut Dainty Bow from Burlap Paper and add acrylic apple button as bow center. Adhere top center of card.
Thank you for playing along and check out the other designers awesome projects!

  6. These little pilgrims are so sweet. I love you burlap it add such great texture - that bow is amazing.

  7. Steff, that burlap is the coolest. Did you put it on sticky paper so it would not unravel? Really great card.

    1. Hi Sandy :-) Thanks for your lovely comment. The burlap came from DCWV Burlap paper stack... so the burlap is actually backed with kraft cardstock, which is so cool because you can die cut it and it won't unravel :-) You can find it at Michael's and JoAnn's or online.

  8. Darling pilgrims, Steff, and I love the burlap background for them! Great idea to use it for the bow, too. Such a great set. It's on my Wish list, along with most of the others.

  9. The pilgrims are so cute - and colored so nicely. Good idea to put them on the burlap - make them look rustic.
