Indian Corn

Today I have tried to make Indian corn the way I like to see it! I used the Thanksgiving cartridge to cut the indian corn at 3" using Desing Studio. I cut the first layer in a cream color and then the second layer in a shiny maroon and cut the 'stems' off of the top so that the cream color would show through the top. DS came into use when I used the layer option of the indian corn. I did a hide contour on the middle ear of corn when I cut layer three in a shiny gold paper. The fourth/top layer was cut on DS with a hide contour on the three ears together and just cut this single ear. I was glad I used DS to do this because these ears of corn take a while to cut because of the scalloped effect to make it look like corn. Once I glued all of the layers together, I inked the edges of the corn in brown.

I honestly can't remember where the paper came from but, I thought it went pretty well. The teal color on the bottom was stamped and then punched with the Martha Stewart modern garland border. I 'hung' the corn using brown ribbon and then stamped another sentiment inside along with a small piece of the patterned paper.
