Making cards can be fun and challenging!  Occasionally it takes a paper a little while to speak to me.  This Rustic Harvest finally spoke out!


Stampin' Up!, Hello Harvest Bundle, Rustic Harvest DSP Brushed Metallic Dots, Jackie Beers


The star of this card is this piece from the Rustic Harvest Designer Series paper.  This pack of papers is beautiful and has great colors, but this one was a bit more difficult.  It was the yellow pumpkins and gourds that were stalling me in deciding which direction to go.  Finally my little brain picked up on the gorgeous leaves.  And the card was finished!  Well, almost finished.  By using the Merry Merlot, which is a color I rarely use, it brought the leaves out from that dark background.  Of course the larger layer of Basic White helped with that.


The Hello Harvest Bundle, Hello Harvest stamps and Rustic Pumpkin Dies, is a match for this DSP.  But after finally getting the paper idea worked out, I did not want to cover it up!  The banner sentiment is a stamp with a matching die.  So using Mossy Meadow Ink and then die cutting the banner I was almost finished.  There was quite a lot of debate about a background layer for the banner.  But finally I decided it could stand alone.  However, I did notice the small leaf stamp and matching die.  So I used Merry Merlot Ink and added the little die cut leaf to the top edge of the card.  With that leaf and a few of the Brushed Metallic Dots placed around, I declared it good to go.
