Victorine Originals ~ Challenge #14 ~ Give Thanks

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #14 on the Victorine Originals BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is: "GIVE THANKS".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
Thank You (2873-J)


Close Up Detail

Card Recipe:
 Sentiment stamped with Versamark on vellum and then embossed using Ranger Gold embossing powder. I die cut the embossed layer using the 2nd largest Stitched Hexagon from MFT. for the background I used a small hexagon die from my stash and die cut hexagons from the Autumn Leaves mini stack from DCWV which has been in my stash for a very long time. I then went about piecing all the mini hexagon die cuts to form the background on a thin piece of cardstock, while tedious and attention to placement were hard the outcome was amazing.  I think it resembles a quilt. Assembly, I cut down the the pieced layer and attached it to a rust colored piece of cardstock sized to A2, for the velum embossed layer I carefully applied tombow glue to the backside paying careful attention to only place glue where the embossing was. Attached embossed layer to top of pieced layer, then adhered the whole thing to the front of a top folding landscape sized piece of Neenah 110lb cardstock sized to A2.  Lastly Nuvo Crystal Drops in Clear were added for accents.
