CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Awning Card

Good Morning, Stampers!


We are creating cards with awnings this week
on the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

I have honestly never made an awning card before - it's a
first for me! When I scoped around Pinterest for some ideas, 
I came across a beautiful wooden awning with wrought iron.
So that was my inspiration for this card:


I took the window ledge and doubled it to create my
awning. The "wrought iron" is the large pumpkin 
topping die from the Patterned Pumpkin framelits.

The awning and shutters were created with the Pinewood
Planks embossing folder and Crumb Cake ink. I lightly
sponged some Early Espresso ink to highlight the
detail in the wood and finished the card off with a 
few pumpkins and the sentiment. 
SU!pplies:
Stamps: Pick a Pumpkin, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive
Accessories: Pinewood Plank embossing folder, Sponge Dauber, Hearth and Home thinlits,
Cat punch, Patterned Pumpkin framelits
