I received the notice for the next Cheery Lynn Designs Blog challenge yesterday which is to do a Halloween themed project. So since I had recently splurged on a few new designs from them I decided to enter this card into the challenge.
Oh, I am feeling better too since Arthur Ritis is not around quite as much as he was yesterday so I decided it was time to play a bit. And taking some Aleve helped too!
I used a base card of white card stock. I then took the Cuttlebug Pumpkin Harvest embossing folder and covered the inside of the folder which has the word Cuttlebug on it with various shades of Autumn colored dye inks. I placed a white panel on the folder and ran it through my Crossover to get the pattern background. It has been a long time since I used that embossing folder and I thought it might work well with this card.
I cut this embossed panel down a bit with a Memory Box Frame die and also cut a size larger one out of Gina K. Designs Tomato Soup card stock. I layered these together and placed them onto the base card.
Next I cut out the Cheery Lynn twiggy wreath and the sentiment with Gina K. Designs Chocolate Brown card stock. I also cut another sentiment out of Tomato Soup card stock. I glued the wreath onto the card. The two sentiments were glued together purposely off kilter to leave a little shadow of the brown to give more dimension to the saying before I glued that on my card.
My border was the Cheery Lynn Designs Barbed Wire. It comes with a set of two but I chose to use the smaller of the set.

Well, that was a fun project and even though I may only get one done a day it is still relaxing to do some card making. Thanks for stopping by.
