Season of Thanks - a sneak peak Autumn card

Yes, it still is summer, but the days are getting shorter and the nights cooler.  There is definitely a feel of autumn in the air.  So today I pulled out on"e of the new stamp sets in the holiday catalogue and made a few cards.  It did feel rather strange to be working with fall colours and thinking about Thanksgiving, but sometimes one has to work ahead.

This Z fold card is made using the "Gather Together" stamp set and coordinating "Come Together DSP".  It is similar to a card I saw on Pinterest.

The card base is a 5 1/2 by 11" piece of  Pretty Peacock card stock, scored at 5 1/2  and 8" and folded to form a Z fold card.

The 2 front panels are layered first with Whisper White card stock and then Come Together DSP.

On a separate piece of  Whisper White card stock, 4 large and  1 smaller pair of pumpkins were stamped using Pretty Peacock ink.  After die cutting them using the Gathering Leaves Dies, only half of each pumpkins was added along the front fold line. Another larger and the small pumpkin pair were stamped on the inside of the card.

The sentiment, stamped in Pretty Peacock ink, was die cut with a layering oval die, and matted with a slightly larger scallop oval die.  After adhering the two together it was adhered to the card front using dimensionals.  Two of the harvest grasses were stamped, fussy cut and adhered to the front below the sentiment and a bow made with the braided linen thread was adhered to the stem top.

A sentiment is stamped on the inside and to finish the card, three Pretty peacock rhinestones were added.
