I am so in love with the Come to Gather Suite in this years Holiday Occasions Catalog. The papers are so richly colored and the designs just beautiful. I have had a fun time making cards using the stamp set and papers.
For my card today, I chose a paper that coordinated with Pretty Peacock and Early Espresso.The Gathered Leaves and In the Woods Dies were used to create a dimensional background for the sentiment. The sentiment and the larger leaf was stamped in Pretty Peacock on a woodgrain look background from the DSP. The sentiment was punched using the Everyday Label punch.You can see it doesn’t look a thing like that punch! Well, I decided to shorted it up a bit by punching each side separately. Then I did not like the rounded edges, so I just cut those off to make them squared off. It is so easy to create your own shapes using your punches. Just practice on some scrap paper and you will learn to make your own shapes!
What I love most about this suite of products is the coordination of the Pretty Peacock teal blue color with the rich, rusty Cajun Craze. It’s a new take on Thanksgiving colors and I love how modern and fresh it feels. The first card I did with this suite captures all the colors in the suite both bright and dark, which you can see below. Click on the image or HERE! to learn what I used to make this card.
If you are looking for some fresh new ideas for your Thanksgiving cards, decor or table decorations, give the Come to Gather suite a look! There are so many possibilities! Next week, I will be sharing a shadowbox sign I CASED from the design shown below from page 46 in the holiday catalog. Click on the image to learn more about the colorful products in this Suite. Aren’t you in love?
