Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #587 Come to Gather

Welcome to this Thursday's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #587.  This week we are using Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock, and Crumb Cake.


I chose to use the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper for my card and the Gathered Leaves Dies.

Begin with a card base of Thick Very Vanilla that is 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and folded.

Cut the Come to Gather feather paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue to the card front.  

The Crumb Cake paper across the card is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper.  Cut to 1 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Glue to the card front.

The wooden pieces come from the Tags & Feathers Elements.  I pressed them on the surface of the Cajun Craze pad.  It took a couple times to get it as dark as I wanted.  This does not adhere as well where the feathers are white.  I wanted to leave the ink on there anyway.  This process can be messy as that ink does not dry immediately.  You just might want to leave them alone for a while or use your Heat Tool.  This is experience talking here!  Place the feathers on the card with glue dots.  And yes, I had to wash my hands!

For the leaves, use the Gathered Leaves dies.  I used all three sizes of the leaves so that I could cut all at once.  Use all three of the colors, too, Crumb Cake, Pretty Peacock, and Cajun Craze.  With the embossing left by the dies, it's easy to curl up the leaves a little.  I added these with a couple of glue dots down the center.

The saying is from The Painted Harvest stamp set found in the Annual Catalog.  Stamp in Pretty Peacock on Crumb Cake.  The Crumb Cake paper is 1/2" x 3 3/4.  Notch the ends.  Add with dimensionals.  This label hides all of the ends of the feathers and leaves!

Finish off with a box made using the Cajun Craze twine from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack.

This is the inside of the card.  The saying is from Painted Harvest.  I had a smudge under the saying.  That's why I added the leaf.  The stem hides my smudge!  What do they say?  It's a reason to embellish!
