a day of thanks...



Hi ~ Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway.  Today is my day at SweetSassyDiva's and I made a simple Autumn card.  I say simple, but I am not a card maker and I tend to make them harder than they seem!!! 
I uncovered my Imagine and took out my Enjoy the Seasons cartridge.  In order to prevent waste, I try to print and cut several pieces at once.  I used the haunted houses for another project.  I put the pumpkins and gourd in my que as one image.  I then broke a second image into layers (the same size as the first image) and printed and cut them both out.
Here is the paper after I printed and cut.
I used the stamp "a day of Thanks" from Close to My Heart sentiments stamps.  I practiced on the layer piece of the banner first.
I used pop dots to layer the small pumpkin and gourd onto the base.   I used 2 pop dots together on the left side of the gourd to even out the layer.
Here they are all layered up!
I cut out a 4x8 piece of brown kraft cardstock for my card base.  I trimmed some green paper from my scrap stash to 3.75x3.75 and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage ink.  I tied a bit of brown twine on the right side.
I took the remaining pumpkin and adhered it to the bottom corner of the card.
I trimmed it and inked it a bit.

I added a little bow with green twine to the stem of the gourd.  I hope you have a wonderful Autumn!!

This turned out really beautiful. I am new to the Imagine and haven't figured out how to get my Gypsy to work with it, am loving the possibilities. Thanks for the great ideas and inspiration.

So excited you did a project with the Imagine. I am just getting used to mine. I like how you added the sentiment to the banner. Love the way you trimmed pumpkin for inside corner. I am always trying to do better on the inside of my cards.
