Yay! It’s finally here! Fall is definitely my favorite season, especially here in New England. The trees are about to put on an amazing show, and there is that special sparkle of crispness in the air!
I made this card recently in honor of my favorite time of year:
I was inspired by the awesome card maker Debby Hughes and her Autumn Greetings card:
Debby’s cards are a constant source of amazement and inspiration to me, and I decided that I just had to have a go at recreating this card.
I started with, of course, my Silhouette Cameo for the pumpkins. I actually only used the Cameo to cut the pumpkins and the offset shapes. After some trial and error with the Cameo – mostly error – I decided to hand cut the stems and glue those on separately. As for the decorative paper, I went with a vintage-looking collection and recycled some old stationary for the lined background. Originally, I tried adding some glitter to the pumpkins for a shimmery effect like Debby, but that plan went horribly wrong. Ultimately, I like the subtle effect of the plain card pumpkins combined with a jute twine bow which gives a nice primitive look.
