So Thankful For You

Today's card was created for the newest Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. I just love fall and all of the things that come with fall...the crisp weather, the foliage, the cozy clothing, fires in the fireplace, and pumpkins! I love pumpkins!!! One of the very first Lawn Fawn stamp sets I ever bought was the So Thankful mini stamp set. And even though I have other pumpkin stamps I knew this set would be perfect for this challenge. I started with some gorgeous fall papers from Simple Stories and all of the papers on this card are from that same collection. I apologize because I cannot recall the name of the collection and it's one of their first so I don't believe it's available any longer. I layered the pretty damask paper onto my card base, rounded the corners, and inked the edges with some Tim Holtz distress ink in tea dye. I stamped the larger pumpkin twice onto some of the orange paper and the smaller one once. I have the dies for these sweet pumpkins but wanted no white edging so I fussy cut them and then edged them with a Memento rich cocoa dual tip marker. I mounted the pumpkins directly onto the linen paper and rounded the corners on the right side. I added the brown gingham strip of paper and some dark brown cardstock that I cut a scallop out of it using a Fiskars punch onto the left side and popped it up using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I added some American Crafts hemp twine and then stamped the sentiment onto some more linen paper, cut a banner out of it, and mounted it up onto the focal panel with some more foam dimensionals. A few 4mm espresso sequins by Pretty Pink Posh and I called this card done! I love this pretty card and think it's pretty enough to use year round!

Beautiful card with some lovely papers. I initially thought the gingham paper was a ribbon! Everything just fits so perfectly in your card! :)
