Stampin Celebration #29

This week at Stampin' Celebration we're getting ready for Thanksgiving!  Another great inspiration piece too!  I wanted to make up some little Thanksgiving treats (teacher gifts, etc) so I used this as my starting point.  

I pulled out my Candy Wrapper Die and some More Mustard card stock.  After I assembled the candy wrapper I added ribbon (remember to add your candy first!) and a strip (1 3/4" by 6") of Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I stamped and then punched out with the Word Window punch and layered it onto the Early Espresso that was punched with the Modern Label punch.  Two of the mini Pearls add a little elegance.  

For the leaves, I stamped in Versamark with the Day of Gratitude stamp set.  I stamped only so that I could have a guide to cut out--on the final project, the stamped side of the leaf is facing the box so that you don't see it.  Next I ran the leaves through the Big Shot with the Spider Web Impressions Folder to add the 'veins' to the leaves.  This isn't my original idea, although unfortunately I don't know where to give credit--it's one of those ideas floating around the web.  But either way, don't pack away that Spider Web folder quite yet--it's useful for Thanksgiving and fall too.  :-) 

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see the other projects for this week.  And then play along with us--we'd love to see what you create!

And I thought I wouldn't need the Spider Web embossing folder since I don't do many Halloween cards...I might be rethinking that just so I can do cute leaves like this. TFS!
