Give Thanks with Stampin’ Up!’s Harvest Hellos Bundle

Oh, how I love a diagonal design on a card! When I sat down to play with this page of the gorgeous Come to Gather Designer Series Paper, I knew I’d have to offset the horizontal and vertical lines with a diagonal band. The rest just fell into place for me. Here’s my sweet-and-simple “give thanks” card:

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Harvest Hellos and Come to Gather. From the moment I first saw the Harvest Hellos Bundle, I knew I’d be using it lots. I love the sentiments in the set, but I really love the versatility of the images and coordinating punch. Whether you want apples or pumpkins, this set will give you just what you want.

  • A Bit of a Slant. I love this woven pattern from the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper – all of the strands of color are woven in a straight up-and-down pattern. To break up that symmetry a bit, I created a thick banner and positioned it at an angle on my card. Although my pumpkin is positioned straight on the card, my sentiment follows the line of the slanted banner. Here’s a closer look: Harvest Hellos Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingI used diagonals and slants a lot to add interest to a card. Earlier this year, I created a tutorial of how to build a perfect diagonal and shared a parade of 10 cards with diagonal designs.

  • Gourd-geous Color Combination. Don’t you just love the mix of colors in the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper?! What a beautiful mix for Fall! I pulled several colors from the background onto my card – Pretty Peacock (the card base and sentiment), Cajun Craze (the borders) and Pear Pizzazz (the leaf). Although Terracotta Tile isn’t represented in the background plaid, I created my pumpkin in this soft rust color.
