Gratitude Spice

This card started out as a case of a card by Shelli, but after many hours of playing around it looks nothing like the original card.  In fact, it's so different, I wont link you back to the original card.  But I knew I wanted to use the new Spice Cake DSP and I don't own any Thanksgiving stamps, so I went into My Digital Studio, and printed out some digital images to make this hybrid card.  The flower on the top left of the card, was case'd from the lovely Ann Schach.  I copied her flower and then mounted it on a flower punched out with the Fancy Flower punch.  I printed out the sentiment and images on Very Vanilla card stock, and then I ran it through the Big Shot with the new Designer Frames Textured Impressions Folder.  I tilted the fram to give the sentiment a funky look.  I tore the paper to the shape I wanted first.  The Pool Party coloured DSP behind it was torn, squished, spritzed with water and then scrunched up into a ball and then laid out in the sun to dry so that it looked extremely distressed.  The bow was made with Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon which was tied into the bow, spritzed with water, scrunched up into a ball and laid in the sun to dry.  Everything was sponged around the edges and sprayed with a Soft Suede marker and the colour spritzer tool.  Don't you just love those extra large buttons.  This card was so much fun to make that along the way I tried out some other techniques and actually came up with 3 different cards.  I'll be posting the other two in the days to come!!
