Fall Pumpkins

This sketch gave me an idea for using this embossing Folder by Sizzix.  It is about 4x6, so too large for the A2 cards I normally make.  I embossed on Kraft cs, then cut the main panel.  This left a piece on each end - not quite right for the corners that peak out.  I just cut some triangles, making sure that each had a bit of the embossed part that would show - a bit of fence or part of the tree.  It is a technique I will use again - though I need to make sure the triangles lineup a bit better!  Added: Cheery Lynn dragonflies, black gems, bits of gold lace.

Oooo . . . so fun!! I LOVE that you let the embossing folder be the main panel. This one is fabulous, so it's perfect! Great idea about using triangles to give the illusion of a tilted second panel. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
