Tutti Designs - Elegant Pumpkins

Happy Sunday Everyone!
Today it's my turn to share a new, inspirational creation using dies from the Tutti Designs Store.  Tutti has come out with so many amazing dies recently and just wait until you see what they will have to share over the next few months!  
Today I'm using the Tutti die called Elegant Pumpkins

With Fall in full swing and Halloween/Thanksgiving approaching, I wanted to have a few cards in my stash that would accommodate a Fall Birthday.  This beautiful die works perfectly for that occasion whether it's for a man or woman.
I first die cut my die image from white card stock.  
I had a few scraps of this fall colored patterned paper laying on my worktable so laid it in behind my die cut image and did a little 'tracing' around the pumpkins then cut it out with scissors.  After placing behind my die cut I had to do a little addition trimming but it was quick easy and love the outcome.

 Since I was using the same patterned paper for the background on my card, I needed to make my die cut image POP and the best way to do that is to mat it with black card stock.  I adhered my die cut and fussy cut around the leaves to achieve my mat.

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store 
and check out all of these fabulous dies. 
Need inspiration?

Oooh, the black really makes that pumpkin corner POP! You did a smooth and perfect job cutting it out. Love the crisp embossed sentiment, too. A great card for a fall birthday!

Yep, these are elegant pumpkins all right! Super creative (and smart) idea to put that black behind, it just makes them pop, and super creative idea to use them for your post, perfect for this time of year!!
