Thanksgiving Pumpkin Border

I have a fun bright and bold Thanksgiving card to share today

This card began with the border of pumpkins, from the Pretty Pink Posh Fall Borders stamp set, which I stamped with copic friendly black ink at the top and bottom of my card panel.

I used some bright yellow-orange copics, not spending too much time blending as I wanted the look of more defined edges to each colour. I used YR27, YR16 and Y35. For a more blended look, add YR15 after the YR16

To help the pumpkins stand out even more, I added some N1 marker around the edges, blending out with an N0 marker. It’s tricky to catch this in photos, but it looks more obvious in real life

I wanted to add a Thanksgiving sentiment, using the new Pretty Pink Posh Happy Thanksgiving script die, but felt like the card needed some colour across the centre first. Continuing with my bold colour choices, I die cut a zig zag border die, from the Pretty Pink Posh Stacked Edges 1 die set, from two colours of turquoise card stock. I added these on my card with liquid glue.

I heat embossed the word HAPPY, using a stamp from the Boo stamp set and selectively inking it. I then added the Thanksgiving script die underneath, die cut from black card and orange glitter card and layered together to create a stacked sentiment

To finish, I added some metallic gold jewels around the card.
