Here are the Fall-themed cards my club ladies will be making this month.
this cute card by Jackie Topa, and I used that for inspiration. In Canada, we're not really big on sending Halloween cards, so I'm always surprised by how much Halloween stuff there is in the Holiday catalogue! It must be a big thing in the States! My club ladies can turn it into a birthday or thank you card by changing the greeting and leaving the jack-o-lantern as a plain pumpkin. Anyway, I thought this owl punch art was super-cute. I've seen it on a number of blogs, so I'm not sure who originally came up with the idea. I started with a Garden Green card base and added some strips of paper from the Thankful Tablescapes Simply Created Kit on an Early Espresso background. I wrapped some Early Espresso stitched grosgrain around that and glued it down. The tag is punched from the Chalk Talk framelits dies out of Whisper White, and I used a Basic Black marker to draw some dotted lines around the outside before hooking it through the ribbon.
The owl piece is made with the owl punch and the 1" circle punch for the pumpkin. For the pumpkin "hat", I used the Boho Blossoms punch and the little heart from the owl punch.
