Nothing says fall to me more than a pretty pumpkin so I went with a pumpkin shaped card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 3 1/4 x 6, fold in half and cut with largest circle framelit (new layering framelits) leaving the top part so that there is a fold there.
  • Pumpkin Pie – cut out 6 more full circles with the same framelit, sponge around edges of 5 of them and then the inside of the folded piece using Pumpkin Pie.
  • Add two of the circle behind the back fold then add the last (unsponged) circle on the very back of the card to finish off
  • Create the pumpkin over the top fold – start with layering the two side pieces onto the’ front piece, stamp the ‘stem’ using the tree trunk stamp from thoughtful branches – crumb cake ink on crumb cake cardstock, cut out and add; add final circle to top matching up with ones underneath.
  • Cut out open leave from Garden Green cardstock, add to pumpkin; stamp leaves using Garden Green on Wild Wasabi, cut out.
  • Very Vanilla – 3/4 x 2 7/8, stamp greeting using Soft Suede, cut into a banner, add to card front using dimesionals and add stamped/cut out leaves
  • Tie double bow from Linen Thread, add to card front, add some basic rhinestones to finish off.
