Happy Thanksgiving Card with Viva Las Vegastamps!

Here is Design Team post tonight for Viva Las Vegastamps! Today I am using the Dog & Cat Pilgrims on Pumpkin and Happy Thanksgiving stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps! to create a dimensional Thanksgiving card.

First, stamp image four times on white card stock and once on an orange panel. The orange panel will be the base panel of the card.  Heat Emboss all stamped images with the Viva Las Vegastamps! Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder.

On the orange panel use the Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and fill in every other section of the pumpkin and allow to start drying.  After it has dried about an hour or two  fill in the other sections, this will give an allusion of a dimensional pumpkin.  
Fussy cut the first three images stamped on the white card stock as pictured.  Full image of the dog and cat, half image of the dog and cat and feather headdress only.

Use the fourth image to plan a color strategy for coloring images with PrismaColor Pencils.  Once you have an idea of the color pallet color the images for the card.  To give the buckle on the top hat a little pop use a Gelly Roll Clear Star pen.
After the images are colored use the Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and cover the feather, top, collar and cuffs on the cat and the top shirt on the dog. Set aside to dry, best if left over night.

Using the base orange panel as a guide, cut pattern paper and black card stock to desired sizes.  Adhere the panels with Viva Las Vegastamps! Miracle Tape and adhere to card base. Add the full image of the dog and cat to the card with VLVS! Miracle Tape.  Using foam tape add the half image to the card and the feather headdress. Stamp Happy Thanksgiving on card stock adhere to a black panel add a toothpick to the back using VLVS! Miracle Tape.  Add the leaves as the final touch with VLVS! Miracle Tape!
