Pals Paper Arts-PPA115

Pals Paper Arts hopes it inspires you to create a fall card this week! Thanksgiving, autumn, harvest or Halloween - pick your own fall theme!

My husband and I just finished tucking away all of our summer outdoor things this morning........bummer! And I had a little bit of time on my hands and just loved this photo so I decided to create a card. This is the challenge photo:

I knew right from the beginning that I wanted to create a "door" card and some punch art. I purposely used a glue stick to adhere my doors windows so that the glue peeked through a little to resemble glass:

Now how about my little black raven? Do you like him? and my pumpkins?

And my fall wreath:

I'll list the supplies I used for each item after you view this last photo:

Wreath Supplies:

  • 1 1/4" Circle Punch (cut the this hole first and then follow with the Scallop Circle Punch)
  • 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch
  • Stocking Punch (the heel of the stocking makes great mini-leaves)
