Happy Harvest

DSCF0043

I have been wanting to do one of these “stair step” cards for a while, so I pulled out Autumn Harvest and stamped the pumpkins and gourds on various fall shades of cardstock.  I really was just sort of playing around, so I will admit that some of the pumpkins are shaded, well…..not so good!  But you know how it is, once you start and have put all the time into it, you hate to chuck it!

I have to admit, these are a challenge to photograph!  And I really didn’t want to make it Halloween-y, but that pumpkin in the middle just looked lost, so I ended up making him into a jack-o-lantern!  Here’s another side view:

  2. Hi LeAnn, You did a really wonderful job creating this "step card". I too am not into all the Halloween themes, but happy Jack O'Lanterns are my one weakness this time of year. They can be very cheerful if done right and your card certainly gives a cheerful feeling. Fab card and I would love the measurements when you have the time...It is an original!

    Love and Blessings, Martha Gunckel
