Happy Thanksgiving ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Happy Thanksgiving! This holiday season, try adding burlap to your next project to create a natural look full of texture and dimension, that's perfect for Fall or Winter. I made a banner with it, on a card featuring an assortment of Autumn Rubber Stamps from Red Rubber Designs

      Autumn Swirls were embossed onto the background with Emerald Creek Baked Texture (Patina Oxide), after smooshing with Distress Inks (Bundled Sage and Rusty Hinge). It's matted with cardstock, embossed with more Baked Textures (Chunky Rust), and (Dirty Sand) on the base.

     I did some hand-stitching around the burlap banner, backed with orange cardstock. 

     The wreath started with some fibers that I saved from some packaging. 

     Then I embossed the leaves, acorns, and sentiment with Emerald Creek (Burnt Copper Leaves) Embossing Powder, using the Filled With Blessings Unmounted Rubber Stamp for the leaves, and the Contemporary Greetings Unmounted Rubber Stamp for the sentiment. 

     The acorns were embossed with the Give Thanks Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp, and topped with a raffia bow.

     Check back soon for the Winter version of this card, using burlap and stamps from Red Rubber Designs!
