Today’s card is about Chuseok. Chuseok is one of the biggest national holidays in Korea. It is on the 15th August by the lunar calendar and this year it will fall on the 27th of September. Chuseok is korean Thanksgiving day. Family members gather to give thanks to ancestors and to Mother Nature for providing a bountiful harvest. And the full moon is one of the symbols of this special day.
This week’s cue word at CASology is “Moon” and the theme of the one layer card at Less is More is “Wishing”. So I thought a greeting card for Chuseok will be perfect for these two challenges. And I used the sketch of the Freshly Made Sketches 203 for this card.
I chose a kraft card base for a natural look of my card. To start off I drew some branches of a persimmon tree with ripe persimmons using colored pencils. To create the moon I masked the persimmon tree and the sky and colored the moon through dabbing a silver ink pad directly on the card base. I then scattered some black and dark blue embossing powder on the moon and heat embossed it to show the craters of the moon. For the sky I masked the moon and blended Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks around the moon.
I wrote the sentiment in korean by hand and it says “Happy Chuseok!” Lastly I added some Irresistible pico Embellisher on the persimmon tree.

I hope this card fills the conditions for a CAS card.
