Fall Pumpkin Card 1

This is my entry into Jaded Blossom's October Challenge: Pumpkin Power!


 I enjoy using dies to make cards because I love patterned papers. Fall papers are favorites of mine because I think the color palette is beautiful. The Fall Farmhouse collection from Simple Stories that I used to make this card has a fall color palette along with a few non-traditional fall colors. My favorite paper from the collection is the gorgeous floral pattern that was used to make the pumpkin. Speaking of cool is that pumpkin die? It's the Fancy Pumpkin Die from Jaded Blossom and I'm in love with it! I really like how this card turned out and I'll definitely make more of these cards using a different combination of fall papers.  


If you'd like to make this card, keep reading for the instructions, as well as a full list of the supplies I used to create the card.

Cut 3 borders out of the brown wood paper using the largest die from the Lawn Fawn Reverse Stitched Scallop Rectangle Die Set.


Next, cut a 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" rectangle out of the sage green patterned paper. I used the Welcome Fall stamp from the Jaded Blossom's Happy Fall stamp set for the sentiment. It was stamped onto the sage green paper using Memento Espresso Truffle Ink.


I attached the sage green piece of paper to an A2 size card base made from kraft cardstock. The 3 wood borders were stacked and glued to the sage green base to add dimension to the border. 

Time to cut the pumpkin! As I said earlier, my favorite paper from this collection is the floral print. I used it as the main paper for the pumpkin. I moved the die around the paper until I was happy with the placement of the flowers within the die. I used low tack washi tape to hold the die in place while it was going through my die cut machine. The pumpkin colored polka dot paper was used for the outline of the pumpkin and for the tendrils. The leaf was cut from the dark green buffalo plaid paper.

Next, assemble the pumpkin. I cut a pumpkin base out of kraft cardstock (no photo) and glued the pumpkin pieces to the base. 

Use this photo as reference for placement of the pumpkin, tendrils and leaf. I used adhesive foam dots to attach the pumpkin and leaf to the card base. Glue was used to attach the tendrils to the pumpkin. Only glue the ends of the tendrils so they stick out from the card. Voila! Your fall pumpkin card is complete! 

I hope you enjoyed making this fall pumpkin card. Follow my blog if you'd like to see what I create next.
