Thanksgiving Splendor

I'm just loving the easel cards I've been seeing all over on other blogs and SCS, so I decided to make another one...this time for Thanksgiving.
The More Mustard base is cut to 4 1/4" x 8" and then scored at 2" and 4" to create the easel stand for the 4-1/4 square card to be adhered to. I used the Bright Blessings Jumbo wheel inked in Really Rust for the base. I also used Autumn Splendor along with the coordinating papers - Autumn Meadows. I really love the colors and the distressed look to these papers...I took that a step further by also distressing the edges of all my layers with Chocolate Chip ink. For even more texture, I used one of my Texturz Plates that looks like tree bark on the Really Rust layers and paper pierced the edges of Chocolate Chip layers. The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes cut with the Word Window Punch and layered on a Modern Label punch. Also used: Aqua painter, Button Latte, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain, Copper Vintage Brads (retired), Copper Cord (retired)

Here's a close up view.

Love the colors, paper and the stamps, but just don't have much time? Here's a card we did at my last card class which uses the same supplies, but is much simpler.
Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!!!
