Harvest of Thanks is one of the new fall themed sets in the Holiday catalog and immediately caught my eye! All four of the pieces in this set match a Framelit which makes them quick and easy to cut out and use! No fussy-cutting there!
The card base is Tangerine Tango, cut 8.5" x 5.5" and folded in half. Next is a layer of Chocolate Chip cut 4" x 5.25". On that is a 3-13/16" x 2" layer of Crushed Curry print DSP from the Sweater Weather pack in the upper area and a 3-13/16" x 3" piece of Sahara Sand in the lower area (these pieces will overlap a bit). The Sahara piece was first stamped with the woven chevron design stamp from the Truly Grateful set then spattered with Tangerine Tango ink and my AquaPainter filled with alcohol.
I sponged a length of Chocolate Chip 7/8" Chevron Ribbon with Crushed Curry ink to blend it into the color scheme better and adhered it around the card where the layers overlap. Next I stamped the "Thanks" image onto Tangerine Tango cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink and die cut it with the matching framelit from the Apothecary Accents Framelits set... so easy! I also stamped one onto Very Vanilla, sponged it lightly with Crushed Curry then hand-cut the "Thanks" area out and adhered it to the label.
Lastly I punched out three small flowers with the BoHo Blossoms Punch, punched out 1/4" Chocolate Chip circles with a hand punch, layered them onto the flowers and centered them with Tangerine Tango Candy Dots from the Brights Collection! Have you tried those? They are the "cats pajamas"! Love 'em!
