I'm sharing a card today that features an autumn arrangement with hint of Halloween fun. I created the arrangement using the Fall Bouquets Honey Cuts. I instantly fell in love with this die set. The possibilities are endless for making beautiful bouquets, arrangements, or wreaths.
I started with an A2 sized white card base. I used a gingham pattern from the new Harvest Festival 6x6 paper pad to create a border behind the main background panel. The purple background is a blend of Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and Wilted Violet Oxide Inks. I die cut all the elements for the arrangement from colored card stock and then used Distress Ink and Copic markers to add shading and details to each piece.
I stamped the greeting, YOU ARE faBoolous from FaBOOlous Sentiments, directly onto the pumpkin with black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I find this results in a more intense black with a glossy finish. I adhered the arrangement to the background panel with dimensional foam squares. Lastly I added a bakers twine bow the arrangement and a few tiny orange gems. The tiny gems are from the Perfect Petals Gem Stickers set.
