A fall card

Hey Crafters, 

today I'd like to show you a more fall-like Halloween card. I needed a card to invite our Granddad to our Halloween party, but he is obviously not much into Halloween. For him, it's about seeing his grandchildren. 

So I wanted a card that didn't scream Halloween - or at least not very loudly. 

So I thought this image would be perfect, a Halloween pumpkin, but also with the option to make it more fall themed. Besides, my sister-in-law has a dog like that, who he used to baby sit.
So I added the additional falling leaves and coloured it all with my ZIG markers. 

Initially I had coloured the inside of the jack-o-lantern yellow, to make it glow, but then my daughter pointed out, that if the dog is sitting inside it, it wouldn't be lighted. So I changed it to very dark grey. What do you think? Is he sitting inside or standing behind it?

See the leave up top, that is half cut off? I had to add that, because the liquid adhesive seeped out when I glued the panel to the card base, and it looked really bad. Luckily it's barely visible now. 

The sentiment says simply invitation.

Lots of Love

  1. Adorable fall card. The puppy looks like he’s sitting in the pumpkin. Did not notice the adhesive mistake, but great cover-up.

  2. So cute! I love that sweet!
