November Club

It's club time again! We have a great Thanksgiving card, and 2 cards that go with home-made gifts. Nothing better than a home-made gift these days!

Okay, so this first card really makes me smile. I just LOVE the 3-d pumpkin. I am not sure that it will mail well, but pop an extra stamp on it, and I bet it would! The bottom edges of each layer is torn (great therapy to tear paper) and sponged.

Here is a close up of the 3-d pumpkin. It is made up of 8 scallop oval punches that are sponged on the edges. And a litle piece of scrap Old Olive curled up for the stem. :)

Stamp Set: Falling Leaves
Ink: Soft Suede
Paper: More Mustard, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
Accessories: Soft Suede Ribbon, Scallop Oval Punch
Technique: Sponging, Tearing

Anyone make home-made salsa, jelly, bread, cookies, pasta? Anything that you make and give as a gift would look great topped with this cute little apron, don't you think? Write the recipe on the card and makes a great gift topper. Make sure you fill in the yum factor! :)
