HAPPY FALL


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!

  1. Cute! Yes, the wiggly eyes does make him even cuter. Sounds like a great cause! Wonderful job using the silhouette. I still don't quite get it. Mine is collecting dust at the moment :-(
