Are you Getting Ready for the Season? Here are Some Card Ideas for You!

Happy November 1st! 

I've been inspired by the muses to put together cards for the Fall season and the upcoming Christmas season.

My First Muse (definition:  a woman, or a force personified as a woman, who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist. noun: muse; plural noun: muses)

I don't know that I would call myself an artist but Close To My Heart helps me look good!

Color My Heart Color Dare presented us with a autumn pallet:

Nice colors to work with for the season, to be sure. I used a very cute stamp that coordinates with the Cricut Artbooking cartridge to make for a very easy pumpkin cutout.

The result is an autumn card that will get sent as a Thanksgiving card.

Supplies to make the card:
The card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I covered it in black cardstock which I keep on hand in a good quantity. Our cardstock comes in 24 sheet packages. I love having supplies at hand so I can create when I get motivated.
