I'm so excited to get to do the Tuesday Trigger challenge! Love them, but I just haven't been able to keep up in a long time. I'm also super stoked about how this card turned. It's actually similar to what I envisioned, which is a rare thing for me.
Here's the trigger picture.
Okay, so it looks nothing like the sweet pin cushion in the photo, but I was dying to try to turn the PTI pumpkin die into a tomato so I went with it. You can be inspired by function over aesthetic, right? This card is mostly die cuts. The tomato body is the pumpkin shape up die, the leaves are trimmed from the Autumn Acorn leaf die, and the strawberry is the Fruit Fusion berry die. I even used the pumpkin section die as a guide to poke holes for my stitching. Traditionally, I'm not much of a die girl (except for clouds!) so this out of the box for me. The sentiment is from GinaK's Sew Pretty set, which is awesome. The pins are stuck between the layers so there aren't any sharp edges. I'll probably include an 'open with care' note when I send it, just to be safe. :)
See all the beautiful entries at Moxie Fab World. Thanks for looking!
