Harvest Gossamer Cornwand

Hi! I started to post this last night, but guess what? When I went to download my pictures, I discovered that I had no memory card in the camera when I was taking the pictures!! By that time of night, there was no light left to take a decent picture, so it had to wait until this morning.

Here is another one with the fantastic Gossamer Cornwand, one of Amy's new line Sweet November Stamps that will be released on Nov 2! All That Scraps will be carrying them. I decided to try the Christmas Stamping All Year Long Challenge to create a Diorama. There is a SCS tutorial HERE. I changed the dimensions a bit - I made my outside pieces 4.25 x 6.5 and scored 1 inch in on both long edges. My middle piece is 4.25 x 5.5 and scored at 1/2 inch. For the center with the spider web I used my Nesties circle to create a opening then slipped my Spider Web corner punch into the opening (with the guard closed) and repeatedly punched the spider web around the circle (I hope that makes sense). If there is someone who can't picture it and wants to try it, let me know and I will try to explain better. The sentiment actually says "Season of Blessings". I had a hard time getting a picture where both the sentiment and the spider on the web showed, even though they are both completely visible when looking at the card! I need to work on my photography skills!! I also went over the web lines of her dress with a black Spica pen so in real life it is sparkly black but it doesn't show up in the photo!

I love this diorama card Traci. I have seen a lot of these cards on blogs the last few weeks (I guess everybody is discovering the same tutorial :) ) but your card is in my top three for sure. The spiderweb is just gorgeous and I love that cute image.
