It's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge again! This week we have a sketch.
I used the Country Lane Designer Series Paper for lots of elements of this card.
Start with a card base of Fresh Fig measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4. Fresh Fig was not listed as a color for this pack of paper. It listed Blackberry Bliss. I thought the Fresh Fig looked good with it.
The lined paper is cut at 4 x 5 1/4. The Crushed Curry designed paper is cut at 3 x 4. The Blackberry Bliss dotted paper measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/2. The dotted paper is attached with dimensionals.
Using the Layering Ovals Framelits, cut three ovals from Whisper White card stock. Run these ovals through the Swirls & Curls embossing folder. Glue these together so that they form a pumpkin shape with the center oval on top. The other two ovals would be behind and to the side. The stem of the pumpkin is punched from the moon on the Twinkle Builder punch.
Use the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies to cut the leaves from the Crushed Curry paper. Glue this behind the pumpkin. I did cut one of the leaves apart from the stem so I could place it where I wanted it. Attach the pumpkin with dimensionals.
Stamp "Thankful" from the Falling for Leaves stamp set on a 1/2 inch strip of the Crushed Curry designed paper. Use Fresh fig. Put a dimensional on the left and tape the right of this strip.
Add a bow using the Linen Thread.
The saying on the inside of the card is from Falling for Leaves and is stamped in Fresh Fig. Cut another leaf stem from the Crushed Curry and glue on the inside.
I love the Fresh Fig and Crushed Curry together. I don't think I've used this combination before.
