Fall Card - Natures Harvest

It is officially fall and the trees here are definitely changing!  We were in New Brunswick for a week and returned home last week.  In NB they have some large Maples trees that were already starting to change.

I am used to the wide variety of fall colours from the Eastern part of the country and the colours here in Alberta are not as bold and vivid.  Here is a photo of a Maple tree with a number of different coloured leaves in NB near my sister in laws house.

I held a Fall card class recently and this is one of my cards using the Nature's Harvest Bundle.  This card is an angled card design.  I saved the pieces I cut off and made another card which I will share in a future post.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the September Paper Pumpkin kit "Haunts and Harvest".

These are the original projects:

Here are my alternate projects:

  Card front using the negative from the leaf punch out piece.  The inside of the card is also shown.


These 2 cards use the leaf images from the kit stamp set using the coordinating colours of the kit.

Broadway Bound Birthday

 Another of my September birthdays!  I made a gift card holder for my nephew.  The DSP that I used is retired but it was suitable for a male themed card.

Here is the inside with the pocket for the gift card.
