Buttoned Up Thanksgiving

This is another card from a class kit. I added the buttons for a crazy circular touch. I love it! The card is a bit heavy, so it may not get mailed, but sent via hand delivery. The pumpkin is SO easy! Punch out 4 ovals (any size would really work or use your nesties) and layer them to create the shape. It's hard to see in the photo, but a small brown scrap becomes the stem (above the leaf); and another brown scrap gets curled around your paper piercer for a vine. The leaf is a smaller oval that was folded and run through the crimper. Layer everything up and you have a super quick and easy fall card! The only stamping was the sentiment, which could easily be left off or changed for your purpose.

I was thinking about pumpkin pie when I made this, hence the sugar and sweet smelling inspirations.
