Give Thanks – by Deb Saaranen

Published by at 8 00 am under Uncategorized

Although thanks are always in order, we especially think of “giving thanks” in a broader sense during the autumn/fall/Thanksgiving/Christmas seasons. This beautiful card by Deb offers the warm glow of candlelight in a beautiful coppery lantern surrounded by fall leaves, all cut with Tim Holtz dies that are 10% OFF right now with code TIM10.

So very lovely!

Deb uses watercolor paper to die cut her images, watercolors them with distress inks and adds a healthy bit of splatter once colored.

The lantern and candle are cut with the NEW Candlelight Colorize by Tim Holtz (Sizzix).

The assorted leaves are cut with Fall Foliage by Tim Holtz (Sizzix).

The beautifully scripted sentiment is from Give Thanks by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.

It is cut with Fishtail Sentiment Banners by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.

Deb layered ovals behind the lantern for a lovely effect. They are Standard Ovals by Spellbinders.

Deb added a narrow silk bow to the lantern handle. It is 1/4″ Silk by Mary Arts.

I love the fall colors against the crisp white!

Thank you so much, Deb, for this gorgeous fall themed card that will surely thrill the recipient to pieces!

Very inspirational!
