When I saw this card design on Pinterest by Cindy Schuster I knew I wanted to make my version of Cindy’s card. I changed the colors and the dsp, but the basic design is the same. These two bundles are my favorite fall bundles in the Holiday Catalog.
Start off with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ Pretty Peacock card base and add a 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the Come to Gather dsp. Cindy used a gingham banner. Next stamp your pumpkins in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie & Pretty Peacock. Also stamp the large leaves in Old Olive and die cut. The smaller leaves are from the Gather together bundle and they emboss and die cut at the same time, SCORE! I crumpled all the leaves and sponged the edges. Punch 3 stems in Early Espresso and add to each pumpkin. Did you know that for a pumpkin, the larger part of the stem is on the bottom? (I did not know this).
What I really loved about this card is how the pumpkins and leaves were placed. To pop up the pumpkins I only added 2 dimensionals on the bottom. What this does is allow you to tuck the leaves under the pumpkins with a couple of Glue Dots. Once all the leaves were put in place, I added some of the curly pieces. Just cut a sliver and wrap around a skewer, add a drop of Tombow Glue on your pumpkins by the stem and hold in place for a few seconds.
I stamped the sentiment from Gather Together in Early Espresso Ink onto the Come To Gather dsp. Don’t forget the inside of your card, especially if your card base is dark. I added a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White and stamped the larger leaf in Old Olive. You can see it in the photo above.Supply List:
