Autumn Harvest

Pumpkins and sunflowers

Pumpkins and postcards!

I fell in love with this beautiful image from Designed2Delight, the minute I saw it. And, yet, I really struggled to make it work. Finally, I started to visualize where I might have seen a cart like this. And then it came to me…in front of an old general store, in a small town or village. You know, the kind of store that sells everything from canned peas to postcards and always has a cart of fresh vegetables sitting on the front porch. In this case, it’s pumpkins and sunflowers. I quickly hunted through my embossing folders for the one called, Postcard.”  Then I ran a yellow ink pad over it to bring the words to life. I used a die cutter to create the scalloped circle and gave it a vintage look with distress ink. A few embellishments and there she be!

Thanks, so much, for stopping by. Please leave a comment so I will know you were here!

  2. Thanks so much for posting your creative mental process. I don’t think I have ever approached card-making in the same manner. Good idea and really great results! I love the background for the image. I’m glad you joined us for the Autumn Harvest challenge & hope to see your creativity here at Designed2Delight again!
