Send Some Happy Fall Cards!

It's getting to be time to send some fall cards! But before we get into that, I have to say that I LOVE any expression on a stamp set that is in my native tongue!  Do you use the word y'all?  I can't imagine not saying it to be honest.  It's just everyday vocab for me.

So to make a card that says EXACTLY what I want to say, well, it just doesn't get any better than that 🙂

This card is so full of texture, which falls into my absolute must features on every card.  Texture is SUCH a big deal – it's a hot topic all the time in Stamping Family.  Below we will talk about all the textures of this card.

The Making

  • Start by dry embossing a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Brick & Mortar folder.
  • Wrap a strip of ribbon around it and secure your tails on the back side of your embossed piece, then add to your Pumpkin Pie card base.
  • Die cut two stitched squares, a larger on in Pear Pizzazz and one size smaller in Whisper White.  Off set these and add to your card.
  • Stamp your pumpkin and color him in to all his glory using your Pumpkin Pie Blends.
  • Stamp your leaf and cut out, color in with Old Olive Blends.
  • Punch out both your pumpkin and your stem.  (There is a stem stamp in the set that you can stamp and color in/punch – but as soon as you do it once, you will realize that life is too short to ever do it again.)
  • Assemble your pumpkin pieces and add to your card using Dimensionals.
  • Stamp your sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink onto a white card stock strip and make a banner on each end.  Not a fan of how your banners turn out – you will LOVE that banner punch!
  • Finish with a bow tied from the same ribbon using your 10 Second Bow Maker.

Ta-Da!  That's all y'all!

Texture points:  I said we would talk about all the texture – so here we go… 1) embossing folder 2)ribbon 3) stitching on the dies 4) coloring on pumpkin 5) angles on your banner 6)

All of these texture points take a card from ordinary to WOW with very supplies and no extra time.  Texture is the #1 thing missing from many cards.  Texture is the difference between store bought and handmade.  Think on that one for just a second… true, right?

Ready to Make?

YES!  I hope your answer is an all caps yes because card making is so fun!  And from the stamps to the embossing folder, every supply used on this card can be used to make a variety of cards – so versatile!  So you can buy them knowing  you will get your money's worth, and y'all, that's the real deal right there.
