ABC

Happy Monday to You!

ABC 9-15-14I’m here to share an idea with you to use those digi images we all have in a non-traditional way. I’m casing an idea I saw done by Pyselfroken (sorry no link available) but I wanted to give her the credit for my project.

I don’t know what the weather is like where you live but we definitely have a feeling of fall in the air.  The temps at night have been near freezing – the trees have already started to change colors.  So much for global warming!

With fall in the air, I opted to make a fall centerpiece.  I started off by cutting strips of orange cardstock and attaching them at the ends with a brad to allow me to move them into a circular shape.  I adhered the pumpkin on to a circle base, glued various flowers to the base and added some die cut leaves.  I wound some green cardstock to make the stem and glued it to the top of the pumpkin, added a die cut leaf and a ribbon.

I printed Squirrel (it is a Catch the Bug Anything but a Card inspiration after all :-)) onto cardstock and also a mirror image and glued the two together as the centerpiece can be seen from all sides and I wanted the image to be seen on both sides of the cutout.  I added a tealight to give the pumpkin and inner glow.  If you try this idea, please use a tealight as I’m afraid a regular tealight would probably burn your centerpiece and after all of that hard work, I hate to see it go up in smoke!

Thanks so much for the visit and I hope I’ve inspired you to try this idea!  Dee
