Fall Pumpkin

 
 
 Hello! I seem to be making a lot of pumpkin cards lately!  Today I am using a neutral color pumpkin that I cut with a file with my Cameo from an off white paper and kraft CS.  I embossed the pumpkin pieces with Darice EF Chevron for texture and inked the edges.  Following a sketch (rotated) from the Die Cuttin  Divas Challenge,  I assembled Kraft CS as the base, layered wood grain Pattern Paper from MME Now and Then pad.  I popped up the pumpkin in the center with the stem and a bow of Raffia.  Attached the sentiment cut with Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and added the Kraft leaf.

Challenges:
Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge: #36 Graphic on left. I was inspired by the Colors, Wood, and Pumpkin.


The Card Concept: #41 Autumn Neutrals
I would consider the style of my card as Clean and Layered. Used clean lines,layers, embossing, pattern papers, etc. Inspired by the pumpkins and wood background.

Die Cuttin Divas: Challenge #236 is the sketch shown.  Used Silhouette file for the pumpkin and leaf and a Lawn Fawn Circle die.

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge: Use Pattern paper on your card.

The Kraft Journal: Challenge 244 is Halloween or Harvest.  Went with Harvest theme using pumpkin.

House Of Cards: October Challenge-To create something with lots of texture and/or using the color in inspiration palette. Have texture in my card.

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
