This afternoon, I decided to spend some much needed quality time with my Silhouette Cameo machine so that I can make a card for the Chemo Angel program. Since it is the fall time of the year, I suppose it is only fitting to use a fall theme for my project. Subsequently it was time to find some fall items in my collections of silhouette files. Boy was I surprised at the number of files I have collected with the fall theme. Low and behold, this cute bear sitting at the fence with a pumpkin caught my eye.
This cutie pie of a bear image consisted of several small pieces to cut; therefore, the good old scrap bin was the perfect place to get the orange, brown, and green cardstock. Once I assembled the image, I could not resist using Creatology 8MM wiggle eyes on the bear. Those eyes makes him even cuter don’t you think? Then I added “Happy Fall” to a print and cut shape file for my sentiment. I nearly forgot to mention the card with the leaf overlay is also a Silhouette cut file which includes an envelope and liner. How awesome is that? I just love using my Cameo.
The card still seemed a little plain to me so I added some washi tape and some retired SU buttons with twine placed in the button holes. Then I popped the sentiment and one of the acorns with foam tape. You all know how I love adding dimension to my projects.
Well, the project didn’t stop there because I ran across an unfinished tea bag/Ghirardelli candy square holder while digging through my scraps. Don’t ask why it was there as I haven’t a clue but that holder was at my mercy from the moment I found it until I finished embellishing it. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I hope you enjoy seeing this project just as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you for stopping by my blog and have a HAPPY FALL YA’LL!
