Paper Pros Thanksgiving House Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

It's time for another Paper Pro's challenge ... this month Caz Counsell issues the challenge "HOLIDAY CARDS".  I'm sure that most people would interpret that to mean Christmas or other winter holidays, but I went with a Thanksgiving theme.

I like the shape of the tree in Karen Burniston's Tree Pop-Up, so used it bare on the card front. The yellow dots in the patterned paper are all embossed and shiny for additional texture.

Inside I used the House and Fence Pop-Up, but not on the floating floor. Instead I cut the Pop-Up bump with the die from the Tree Pop-Up and attached the decorated house to that.

I added a couple of trees in behind the house, with the foliage cut from a piece of card stock I coloured with Colorbursts & Magical Shakers. Then they got some shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen.

The labels come from the Katherine Label Pop-Up set - those label dies are so versatile!

The sweet fence and stone path was cut from the same water coloured card stock and I added another blank label for us to add our signature etc.

This is a casual challenge, with a varying number of participants each time. This month we have:
