Grapevine Wreath

It's Kathy here with you today!  I can't believe it's November already!  Time is going by so quickly, before you know it will be Thanksgiving!  With that in mind, today I have a Thanksgiving Card to show you that I made using Build-A-Grapevine Wreath and Fall Owl Border, 2 new CottageCutz Dies from The Scrapping Cottage's Harvest Release.

To make my card, I started with a French Roast card base and added a mat of Very Vanilla Cardstock embossed with Rebecca Embossing Folder and inked with brown.  I cut the wreath with a bunch of scraps of browns, greens, oranges, and reds, shaped and inked the pieces and assembled them together.  The owl border was cut with French Roast and Quicksand Cardstock.  I taped the back of the Quicksand pieces so that the punched pieces would stay in place, then glued the French Roast border over it.  I then cut the border in pieces so I could add the owls around the wreath.  I also added a couple of extra acorns and a jute bow and button with twine in it to finish it off!

Here's a close up of the wreath and the little owls.  These little guys are so cute!

These are the dies I used on this:
