Hi, Pumpkin!

So here is my interpretation of this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge picture inspiration!
For some reason this card reminds me of my son. I'm sure you are wondering why : )
I always called him my Punkin' Head. (he always had a big head haha!) of course, he didn't have little flowers and leaves sticking out of his head....
Anyways, I began with More Mustard cardbase, added Very Vanilla as a mat and then More Mustard Patterned Paper. This particular pattern is retired, but you can substitute with a current one, and it would still look great! Then i added 3 strips of vanilla and More Mustard across the middle. I punched 3 flowers in Daffodil Delight from the Boho Blossoms punch, then 5 large ovals out of Pumpkin Pie. I also punched the leaves from the bird punch in Old Olive. I layered the ovals to create a pumpkin and added all the little pieces together. The "hi" is made from the negative of some chipboard letters i got last year. I traced the inside onto Concord Crush patterned paper and cut them out. Put them on Dimensionals, added a little flower to dot the "i" and added stitching with my Pumpkin Pie marker!

Pretty Easy

Here are 3 Christmas cards that really aren't that difficult to make but look really pretty! Just put some patterned paper on a cardbase, emboss with gold embossing powder on gold paper, either cut them out, make them a panel, or die cut them with an oval, etc, put them on the card and add a few can do that!
