Harvest Vegetables

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

My card today is a sneak peek from the  soon to be released Autumn 2018 dies. I am featuring the Basket of Vegetables + Fall Phrases dies. As soon as I saw this die, it reminded me of our own vegetable garden that has most of these same veggies growing. We have had a big harvest this year.

Also, over in the online store we have the Halloween and Christmas Part 3 dies that are currently on a 25% off sale. All new designs and a really cute huskie die that is an online exclusive.

So let's get started with some details on how I created my card;

Step 1: I started off my card this week with the layout. I used the Splitcoaststampers Sketch #717 for my card. I thought the layout would show off this basket of vegetables die well.
Step 2: I wanted to use designer paper that had more of a fall theme to it. I had this sheet in my papers and I paired it with daffodil and a moss green cardstock. I also added another layer to my card than was called for in the sketch.

Daffodil card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Mossy green layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Designer paper layer: 3 7/8" x 5 1/4"
Step 3: I cut my basket and all the vegetables. I just used the colors that are on the packaging. They are the colors that are true to the actual vegetables.
I layered this on a white panel (element 2 of the sketch). I found the panel in my stash that was already embossed and sponged. The fence look was perfect as a background for my image. I changed the color of element 3 of the sketch. I decided to use the moss green cardstock and then orange bakers twine.
Added the vegetable basket image to the background. I used dimensional adhesive to lift it off the panel slightly. I die cut the Autumn phrase in orange cardstock and added it to this panel.
Step 4: Finished the assembly of the card. To cover the angled panel (element #4) of the sketch, I used the fig and radish.
Well that's it for me for this week. I hope you have enjoyed the sneak peek of some new dies. they will be in the online store shortly. See you next Saturday!
