Thanks Fall Card
I am so crazy excited to share this project with you today! Oh my goodness...this is maybe one of my favorite cards, ever!
And for a fun hop that Stuck on U Sketches gals are doing with Whimsical Wednesday! With a wonderful Give Thanks, Fall Theme! We hope that you will join us and check out the wonderful goodies Whimsical Wednesday is offering for our hop!
You should of arrived here from Tereese S' blog. Blog hop in particular starts tonight and until midnight EST on Sunday.
I leave tomorrow...yes FINALLY, woohoo! I get to leave on almost 4 days at a scrapbooking retreat. Pretty much the single thing that I get to do each year and the one and only thing that I really truly look forward to! I have lots of projects designed and ready to go and can't wait to create! I share this because I won't have as much time to hop as I may like but will do my best to visit you ladies! So thank you for coming by!
But I am sure you understand...4 days, scrapping, incredible meals prepared for us in our own house in the California Sierra's...and, did I mention...NO KIDS! This will actually be the longest I've ever been away from the kids! In their whole lives! =)
Ok, sorry... I got a little excited...how about back to the card? LOL!
I started with a Lori Whitlock card design and altered that a bit using the Silhouette design software. I shaped mats for the pattern paper (background of the card) and again for the background, I designed a shape that looks like a hat (front portion) instead of just a square shape that would allow no pattern paper to be laid on the bottom portion of the card. (You can find this cut here on the Silhouette store). Here's the actual card so you can see a bit more of how I altered it.
I used a leaf cut to make my own window piece. In the background I used some ledger paper and then clear embossed a woodgrain stamp onto vellum and added that overtop. All adhered to the bottom piece and the leaf window popped up.
The polka dot paper in the background had a bit of glitter on it, so I actually added those small spots of glitter to the yellow paper. And then some more here and there...brought the whole card together! =)
