This card pairs 3 of my favorite companies -- Core'dination cardstock, Creative Charms embellishments and SVG Cuts. The final thing I used was eerie pattern paper (jack-o-lantern).
First came the cut. if you haven't checked out the great products from SVG Cuts to be used with SCAL, then I suggest looking at them. This set is called Linus' 3D Fall Cards. Take a look at all 9 cards. They also have a bonus with the cuts as card tops (with or without the stitch marks) and the items separate. If I can get it cut out, I'll show you one I designed using pieces from different places.
Then came Core'dination cardstock. I stock up on their cardstock every time it goes on sale. Just this week I was able to buy their Nostalgia ColorCore for $15. It has 80 sheets and 40 colors. Hobby Lobby has paper stacks on sale every few weeks and this week I couldn't resist. However, the two I used here are from JoAnn's. They too have single sheets on sale, often times 4 for $1. The only problem is I've grown frustrated with their customer service again so I've sworn off going into the store. We'll see how long that lasts.
When I first put the card together it was clear that it need just a little bling. I decided to check my stash of Creative Charms embellishments. As I hoped, I had just what I needed. The eye is a gradient gem. You can buy them here. I used the medium shade in the amber assortment. The flowers came in two different sets. They looked like this
October Deal of the Month. Unfortunately it isn't available as a package any longer but I think you can find all of the pieces parts on their website.
I'll leave you with one more picture of the full card.
