We made it to the middle of the week. What a week it has been in Gal Friday’s craft room. I am preparing to send the craft box for July. The class to go that will be posted at the end of the month is in the process and my mail pile is growing. If you purchased the craft box for July, they will be mailed by the end of the week. If you missed the registration, the PDF with a short video is now available. With all the confusion, I cleared a bit of space on my desk. Once I cleared my desk, I created the let’s gather together with Pretty Pumpkins card.

Let's gather together sentiment stamped inside of this card created with the Pretty Pumpkins bundle

Wanting the pumpkins on the front of the card to pop, I used a base of Crumb Cake. The second layer on the front of the card was embossed in gold with the same stamp that I stamped the pumpkin with. The dies and stamps is this set are just so beautiful. Not only are they wonderful for Autumn, I can see myself using the pumpkins to create Halloween cards too.

What I did learn when embossing the front of this card, do not forget to close the container of your powder. That’s right! If you are working in a warm and humid room, the embossing results are horrible.

There is no better way to create than with products you love and when you tell your friends, let's gather together.

I did not forget the inside of my let’s gather together card today. I embossed the sentiment on the inside. Note, I used a new container of powder to see if there was a difference when it is left open, and there was. Notice the difference between the embossing on the front of the card and the inside.

Sentiment is simply stamped on the inside of the card.
